COVID-19 : (Eid-El Kabir) Buhari Charges Muslims, Other Nigerians To Follow Guidelines During Celebration


President Muhammadu Buhari has charged Muslim faithfuls and other Nigerians on the need to follow all guidelines to help prevent further spread of Coronavirus during Eid-El Kabir Celebrations.

In his Sallah message to Nigerians on Thursday, he said,

"I wish all Muslims a happy and fulfilling Eid El Kabir celebration. We can create the greatest impact by putting into practice the noble teachings of our religion. We must put the fear of God in our daily activities in order to make our society better.

" I would like to call on Muslims and other faithfuls to continue to show more understanding with the government as we take steps to protect our people through social distancing and other guidelines.

" The guidelines are dictated by necessity in order to safeguard public health, and should not be perceived as an infringement on people's right to worship. These are challenging times for the entire world; COVID-19 has had devastating adverse impact on every aspect of our lives.

" The preventive guidelines we have introduced to contain the spread of the Coronavirus have unfortunately limited people's freedom to gather and worship in large numbers in Mosques and Churches. I call for continued patience and understanding from all. We will overcome this pandemic.‬

Eid Mubarak!"
