Did you notice from the statistics above that Kano wasn’t recorded?
Could it be that NCDC are still collating the results from Kano just like the 2015 presidential result?
I am afraid, Kano is just like a ticking Bomb waiting to explode…… Quite unfortunately..
Testings are currently not going on in Kano because there was a contamination or something.
By the time testing resumes and NCDC start calling their result, it will be like 2015 elections. Remember the FEAR NORTH era?

Some have however become sarcastic about the Kano’s case by comparing it with football league table…
Lagos comes through from outside the 18 yard box and remains at the top of the NCDC league..
With 80 points from todays Game.. Kano no where to be found and underdogs like Gombe coming around
Well Thats all for tonight. From me Goodnight everybody..
Anything to add Jim??

• Lagos doesn’t wanna give up on the NCDC league yet with 80 points today alone
• FCT seems to be losing form in the race for the title
• Kano still very much determined in finishing top four
• Gombe from nowhere showing they have what it takes to go for gold
80 in Lagos

Sadly, Kano state citizens have been flouting the lockdown order as they are still moving in group, attending the mosque 🕌 without any adherence to social distancing.
Mecca and Kano today.

Finally, the straw that broke the Carmel’s back is the constant denial and downplaying of the severity of the Kano’s case by the state government yet her citizens are reportedly dying in numbers.
Watch the video below as 180 persons reportedly die of unknown sickness and buried in the cemetery…
