The People’s Democratic Party, PDP Caucus in the House of Representatives, have demanded an urgent and thorough investigation by the Federal government into the circumstances surrounding the disturbing mass death in Kano State, with a view to finding lasting solutions to the problem.
In a statement, the leader of the caucus, Mr Kinsley Chinda, says the development is more worrisome in the midst of the current Coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world, including Nigeria.
Mr Chinda states that while the cause of these deaths remain unknown or are yet to be ascertained, the efforts of the Kano State Government and particularly that of the Federal Government through the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) and the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 seem to have been largely devoid of any practical solutions.
The Lawmaker commiserated with the residents and people of Kano State, especially those who lost their loved ones and urged them to remain steadfast.
Mr Kinsley, urged the Federal Government to establish COVID 19 test centers in each state of the federation to arrest the spread of the virus.
