Kano State Governor, Abdullahi Ganduje, has directed the closure of all public and private schools in the state with immediate effect.
.
This was contained in a statement signed by the state Commissioner for Education, Sanusi Kiru, a copy of which was made available to newsmen in Kano on Wednesday morning.
.
Even though no reason was given for the closure of the schools, but the closure may not be unconnected to a spike in cases of COVID-19 in some parts of the country, which led to the closure of schools in some states including Kaduna and Jigawa.
.
The move may also not be unconnected to the recent abduction of over 300 schoolboys from Government Science Secondary School, Kankara, Katsina State.
.
Similarly, the Kano State Government has directed the immediate closure of all public and private health training institutions in the state.
.
The affected training health institutions include School of Basic/Post Basic Nursing and Midwifery, School of Health Technology and School of Hygiene.
.
A statement by the state Commissioner for Health, Dr Aminu Tsanyawa, on Wednesday, said the closure of the institutions was with immediate effect.
.
The statement, therefore, advised parents to get their children from their respective schools unfailingly today.
