Shehu Sani has revealed why Buhari cancelled yesterday's broadcast

A former Kaduna Central Senator, Shehu Sani, has raised concern on the Federal Government’s confusion on how to tackle the second wave of COVID-19.

This comes despite the government’s all clear for the reopening of schools regardless of huge cases recorded every day, including the over 1400 cases the Nigeria Center for Disease Control recorded on Sunday.

In the tweet posted on his verified Twitter handle, Sani highlighted that the state governments should be responsible for ensuring adherence to COVID-19 measures.

He tweeted: “Reopening schools and other #COVID19 regulatory measures should be a matter for the states and not the FG; the 36 states, including FCT have different infection rates. There is evident confusion on how to tackle the second wave.”

Meanwhile, public and private schools in the Federal Capital Territory as well some states across the country resumed for academic activities on Monday amid the second wave of COVID-19.
