The Presidency has declared that President Muhammadu Buhari will be celebrating the 2020 Eid-el-Fitr marking the end of Ramadan at home.

Mallam Garba Shehu, the senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity made the disclosure in a statement on Friday.

He added that President Buhari will be conducting his Eid prayers with his family at home.

He noted that the President’s action is in line with the lockdown measures in Abuja as well as the directive of the Sultan of Sokoto, 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.

“With the Eid-el-Fitr celebrations around the corner and the month-long Ramadan fast coming to an end, President Muhammadu Buhari will be conducting his Eid prayers with his family at home.”

“This is in observance of the lockdown measures in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, put in place “to save lives and protect people from all dangers.”

“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.”

Mallam Shehu added that President Buhari will not be receiving homages from anyone this year, contrary to his usual custom during the end of Ramadan festivities.

“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,” he said.

Meanwhile, the federal government of Nigeria led by President Muhammadu Buhari has declared Monday, May 25 and Tuesday, May 26 as public holidays to mark Eldi Fitri Celebration.

Naija News reports that the declaration was made on behalf of the Federal Government by the Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
