Aminu Ado Bayero, Emir of Kano, has urged the resident of the state to use the period of Ramadan, Muslims fasting month, to channel special prayers against the Covid-19 global pandemic.
The Sarkin Kano made the plea during an address to the people of the state on Friday, April 24, following the announcement that the crescent has been sighted.
Ado Bayero, who called for total compliance with the Sultan-led Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), maintained that it is through God's intervention that the coronavirus crisis can be frozen out.
“God Almighty listens and hears every request we make. In this difficult situation, I urge the people of Kano State to join me in praying for an end to this pandemic, for it to be kicked out of our state and Nigeria in general.
“We must observe all the necessary personal hygiene, adhere to advice by medical experts, stay at home, and more importantly pray hard. God will surely see us through,” the emir said.
Nigeria presently has 981 Covid-19 cases spread across twenty-seven states including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), of which Kano has 73 cases.
According to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC), 197 patients have been discharged after recovering from the pandemic, while 31 deaths have been recorded.
