The Kano State Governor, Mr Abdullahi Ganduje, has commended the capital market community supporting his administration in the fight against COVID-19 with the donation of a brand new fully equipped ambulance.

While receiving the mobile medical facility recently, the Governor said the donation came at the time it was most needed by the state.

While inspecting the vehicle’s sophisticated facilities, Mr Ganduje promised that the State Task Force Against COVID-19 will make judicious use of the vehicle.

“This is a good time for the donation as the state is currently embarking on community sample collection aimed at getting more people tested for coronavirus,” he said.

The ambulance was presented to the state government by the Zonal Director of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in Kano, Mr Danladi Mohammad.

He presented the item to the Governor on behalf of the Capital Market Support Committee on COVID-19 (CMSCC).

According to Mr Mohammad, the gesture was to complement efforts of the state government in the war against the pandemic, which he said is being won already.

He expressed appreciation over the steps taken by the state government and prayed to Allah to bring an end to the pandemic.

The CMSCC was set up on Thursday, April 16, 2020, to coordinate the capital market community’s contribution to fighting the virus. The group has Mr Ariyo Olushekun as Chairman.

The committee has been working tirelessly to mobilise resources from market participants and other stakeholders to advance the cause of providing palliatives to those in need and medical equipment to designated hospitals and isolation centres.
