Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari, has barred any form of visit to the first family for the purpose of this year’s Sallah celebration, saying he wished to be alone during this period with his family.

In a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, the President, said he would observe the Eid El-Kabir prayers with his family at home, just as he did during the Eid El-Fitr a little over two months ago, in line with advisories from the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA and the Presidential Task Force, PTF on COVID-19.

Therefore, all forms Sallah homages by religious, community, party and government leaders, would not be entertained, the President, emphasised, urging Muslim faithful and others celebrating at this moment to also observe all the COVID-19 protocol.

The statement, added: “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. He once again wishes all citizens a safe and happy Eid.”
