Kano Nigeria Events
People in northern Nigeria have not forgotten that federal funds are intended to fight and support the fight against polio and other infectious diseases such as cholera, measles, mumps and rubella (polio) in the country. President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered Nigeria's northern Borno state, which has an estimated 13 million people, to close after polio outbreaks in its capital Maiduguri. Lagos is now fighting polio again, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Other countries that have already been declared polio-free are Burkina Faso and Ghana, as well as Mali.
In the 13th century Kanem in Borno was the capital of the Cameroon Empire, a colonial power in West Africa. Germany made matters worse by establishing a West African colony called Kamanun, which included parts of what is now eastern Nigeria. Bornos is Nigeria's poorest state with a population of just over 1.5 million, according to the National Statistics Office.
This article attempts to trace the history of Kano, the capital of the central Nasarawa state, where the city of Awe is located. Several events occurred during the reign of Muhammadu Attahiru (1894 - 1924), the first sultan of Nigeria. Aliyu Babba, a winner of 18 94, swore allegiance to Muhammad U Attahsiru as the new sultan, and the British conquered Kalo in 1903 and appointed Muhammadi Abbas as Abdullahi, the Emir of Kano. When I flew from NASARawa to Kono, there was no Kyo Emirate as it had been founded by the British after 1903, because there was no name of its own.

With presidential, governmental, and legislative elections looming in Nigeria, where the stakes are high and other conflicts are smouldering, the risk of violence is widespread. If you live or work in or near Nigeria, or are resident in a state with a history of political violence such as the state of Borno, you should monitor developments in the state and the announcements of state governments, as the threat of retaliatory attacks increases.
When a passenger from Liberia brought Ebola to Lagos in 2014, it could have been a global health disaster, but it was limited to 19 cases and highlighted the importance of tracking the spread of coronaviruses. This has led to a decline in positive cases in Kano, a state that had the highest number of (positive) cases at one time, while COVID-19 cases are confirmed every day in Nigeria. The Index for the Prosecution of CO VID 19 Cases can be linked to the fact that its early response to it was marked by too many inconsistencies, which caused a public outcry throughout Nigeria and beyond. It underlines the need for a more comprehensive approach to tracking and monitoring the spread of the coronavirus.
Kano, a state that was once the epicenter of the virus in Nigeria, has seen no reported cases of coronavirus in the past two years, despite a high number of positive cases.
Northern Nigeria has been left behind in various aspects of today's development, and in this respect women have suffered most. Interventions that are seen as emanating from the West have often aroused mistrust in northern Nigeria, but what are their underlying motives? Apart from terrorism - kidnappings in connection with kidnappings are common, but kidnappings for ransom are common, with foreigners and high-ranking Nigerians frequently targeted. British citizens visiting friends and relatives are often perceived as more prosperous than locals and are particularly vulnerable to being kidnapped for ransom.
Nigerian authorities have arrested at least 418 children in the past year in connection with their alleged links to the terrorist group Boko Haram.
Lagos remains the epicenter of the virus in the country, with more than 1,000 cases recorded, while Kano state has the second highest number of cases, with 693 recorded. As of April 14, a total of 19 cases had been confirmed in Nigeria, according to the National Center for Disease Control and Prevention (NCDC). Kyo has the highest co-morbidity and mortality rate of any other state, besides Lagos and the two states of Kania and Borno.
According to the NCDC, 115 COVID cases have been reported in Kano state (19 cases), while in Lagos there are 693 cases with a total of 1,000 cases. The average number of days between the first confirmed COIDV (19) cases and the end of the outbreak, which lasted up to 70 days and in some cases even recorded zero cases of the virus, is less than 20 cases per day.
