As Nigerians join rest of the Muslim Ummah to celebrate the 2021 Eid-Al Adha, the National Orientation Agency (NOA) has urged them to pray for peace, security and general well being of the country.

The Agency equally enjoins citizens to imbibe the values and lessons that the celebration signifies for the progress, unity and development of the country.

In a Sallah message, the Director General of NOA, Dr. Garba Abari urged the Muslim Ummah to hold unto the lessons of selflessness, discipline obedience and sacrifice which is the essence of the celebration.

Abari also called on the Ummah and indeed all Nigerians to stay and keep safe in view of the confirmed upsurge in COVID 19 infections noting that the Delta Variant of the virus is already in the country.

He charged all Nigerians to remain law abiding and embrace the spirit of kindness, tolerance, self-discipline, obedience and sacrifice as the theme of this festival for peaceful coexistence among all citizens irrespective of religious, ethnic and political affiliations.

While wishing the Muslim Ummah a happy and peaceful celebration, the NOA Director General urged them to avoid large gatherings and comply with strict adherence to all prescribed non pharmaceutical preventive measures of facial coverings, constant hand washing and physical distancing during the sallah celebration.
