3) Kano government shuts down restaurants, eateries as six workers test positive for Hepatitis B.
The Kano State Consumer Protection Council, KCPC, has said the positive Hepatitis B test result of six restaurant workers in the state have resulted in the closure of all other eateries and bakeries.
The Acting Managing Director of the Council, Dr. Baffa Babba Dan’agundi said this while addressing a press conference in the state on Sunday, adding that measures have been put in place to prosecute violators of a directive stipulating a clear Health Certificate before operating restaurants.
Dan’agundi expressed worries that the six workers who tested positive are from the three restaurants tested in less than a week, whereas the state has more than 3,000 restaurants operating in the state.
The council had given a seven days ultimatum to owners of restaurants, bakeries and water producing factories among others to produce a certificate of health and at the expiration ordered the immediate closure of those who failed to produce the certificate.
Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has insinuated that former Head of State Ibrahim Babangida (IBB) cancelled the June 12, 1993 election presumably won by MKO Abiola due to Jealousy.
Obasanjo made this statement on Sunday in Abeokuta, the Ogun capital, after his investiture as a trustee of the Abeokuta Club.
He said that IBB’s action denied Egbaland and Ogun the privilege of producing three occupants of the nation’s top seat, including Ernest Shonekan, ex-Head of Interim National Government (ING).
So, what do you think about these statements released by Olusegun Obasanjo?.
