Meanwhile, it was a huge relief in Kano following a confirmation that 22 out of 25 suspected cases of coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19) tested negative in the state. Prior to the confirmation, there has been anxiety in the state as coronavirus took a grave dimension in the country with the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) reporting more cases.

With the virus already detected in neighbouring Kaduna and Bauchi states, Kano government has been on alert, hence the Covid-19 test being carried out on suspected cases.

As the Nigerian government continues to battle with the dreaded coronavirus, many more people including celebrities and businessmen are reaching out to show support in one way or the other. Joining them is top billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, and Nigerians are amazed at how much he is willing to part with, for the sake of the country.
