Eid-el-Kabir: Buhari congratulates Muslims, calls for adherence to COVID-19 protocols

By Amidu Arije

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Nigerians especially the Muslims on the occasion of 2020/1441 Eid-el-Kabir celebrations.

As the president wishes all Muslims a happy and fulfilling Eid-el-Kabir celebrations, he called on them to put into practice the teachings of islam in their daily activities.

President Buhari in his Eid-el-Kabir message to Nigerians also charged all as they celebrate the salah to remain thankful and adhere strictly to the laid down guidelines and protocols by health experts in mitigating against the spread of coronavirus pandemic.

The statement reads:

“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!”.
