The Presidency says President Muhammadu Buhari observe this year’s Eid El-Kabir prayers with his family at home, just as he did during the last Eid El-Fitr celebrations.

According to a statement a presidential media aide, Garba Shehu, the decision was in line with advisories from the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA and the Presidential Task Force, PTF on COVID-19.

“In wishing all Muslims a safe and happy Eid, the President reiterated the protocols as issued by the PTF that large gatherings, as much as possible, should be discouraged.

Where small groups choose to hold the Eid together, face masks are absolutely necessary, as is social distancing.

“Advisedly, such prayers should hold outdoors and worshippers are encouraged to bring their own prayer mats.

“In order to stop the spread of the disease, the President will not be receiving Sallah homages by religious, community, party and government leaders and urges all citizens to observe the occasion as advised by state and local authorities,” the statement noted.
