Buhari observes Eid-el-Kabir celebration with his family


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday observed the Eid-el-Kabir prayer and celebration at Aso Villa with only members of his family.

According to the President, he observed the prayers and celebrations with family members in line with COVID-19 safety measures.

In a tweet on his verified Twitter handle, Buhari wrote: “I observed the Eid-El-Kabir prayers at home with my family, this morning, in keeping with the advisories from the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs. Once again I wish us all a safe and happy Eid. #EidMubarak.”

Recall that Buhari had some days ago disclosed that he would observe the Eid El-Kabir prayers with his family at home.

In a statement by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, Buhari had said he won’t be receiving visitors who usually troop to the Presidential Villa to pay Sallah homage
