President Muhammadu Buhari has wished all citizens a happy and safe Eid as the country joins other Muslims across the world to mark the 2020 Eid El-Kabir celebrations.
Taking to social media on Friday, the President announced that he observed the Eid El-Kabir prayers at home with his family, in keeping with the advisories from the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs.
“I observed the Eid El-Kabir prayers at home with my family, this morning, in keeping with the advisories from the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs. Once again I wish us all a safe and happy Eid. #EidMubarak,” he shared on Twitter.
He also urged all Muslims in a statement released to press to put into practice the noble teachings of the Islamic religion and put the fear of God in their daily activities in order to make our society better.
Speaking further, the President acknowledged that the preventive guidelines that have been introduced to contain the spread of the Coronavirus have unfortunately limited people’s freedom to gather & worship in large numbers in Mosques and Churches.
He, therefore, called on Nigerians to continue to exercise patience and understanding until the nation and the world overcomes the pandemic.
