President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that all celebrations, including the forthcoming Eid-Al-Fitr, should be limited due to the global coronavirus pandemic.

 According to Buhari’s Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President, First Family, his personal aides, members of cabinet and Service Chiefs who choose to remain in Abuja, will congregate in full compliance with COVID-19 protocols at the forecourt of the Presidential Villa to observe the Eid prayers at 9 a.m.

Shehu also announced that there would be no traditional Sallah homage to the President by religious, community and political leaders after the prayer.

”As was the case last year, the President encourages such leaders to be content with modest celebrations at home in view of the pandemic,” he said.

 Buhari also thanked the Ulama (Islamic Clerics) and all other religious (Muslim, Christian) leaders who had been praying for the wellbeing of the nation and its people.

”The President, in addition, takes this opportunity to condole with all who lost family members due to what he described as the ‘madness’ going on in parts of the country,” the statement added.

Buhari also called on all local leaders to talk to their youths and warn them against being used to incite and foment violence.
