Even the keys in aso rock ain’t safe, you want Bubu sugar to die mysteriously, everything associated to Kano right now ain’t safe

Kano and by extension the north of Nigeria won’t be able to handle this, remember the north feeds the country.
1.Mobilize trained health workers from places like Lagos to help the response asap.
3.Consider farming in the south to maintain the food chain.

80 in Kano. Even if Buhari open up Lagos and Abuja, they should lock up Kano and keep the keys in Aso Rock for now. Because the stories from Kano is really shocking and disappointing. #COVID19
