President Muhammadu Buhari and family members today observed the Eid-el-Fitr prayer at the presidential quarters. The President observed the protocol of social distancing during the two-raka’at prayer, according to the guidelines of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

The President’s decision to observe the Eid prayer at home we hear, was also in observance of the lockdown measures in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, put in place to save lives and protect people from all dangers.


The president had cancelled the annual traditional Sallah homage being embarked upon by residents of the FCT led by the FCT Minister, to the Presidential Villa, Abuja. “We will not be receiving these homages in a bid to stop the coronavirus from further spreading,” Said a statement from the presidency.


According to the President, “this year’s fasting period was particularly challenging for Muslims because they had to forgo many important aspects of their daily worship, including the routine congregations for prayer and the recitation and interpretation of the Holy Qur’an as well as traveling for the lesser pilgrimage to Makkah. It is not easy to give up many of these important duties and activities, but it became imperative to do so in order to control or limit the spread of this deadly disease.”
