Buhari To Conduct #EidMubarak Prayers With His Family At “Home”
This is according to a statement by the Ruler’s Spokesman, Garba Shehu, on Friday.
“This is also in line with the directive of the Sultan of Sokoto & President General of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III suspending Eid congregational prayers across the country as well as the protocol against mass gathering issued by the PTF on COVID-19.
“Further to this, the President who has traditionally shared the joyous moment with top government officials, political leaders, community heads, Muslim and Christian leaders and children, will not be receiving these homages in a bid to stop the coronavirus from further spreading,” the statement read in part.
According to the latest figures published by Johns Hopkins University, 5,125,612 cases have been detected globally, with 333,382 deaths and 1,964,097 people now recovered.
Nigeria has recorded 7,016 cases and 211 deaths.
