President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to observe the Eid-el-Fitr celebration at his home town in Daura, Katsina.

The Sallah celebration which has always been observed at the Presidential Villa, Abuja has been suspended due to the outbreak of the deadly coronavirus in the country.

In a statement issued by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu in Abuja on Friday, he stated that the decision was in obedience to the directive of the Sultan of Sokoto and President General of the Jama’atu Nasril Islam (JNI), Alhaji Sa’ad Abubakar III suspending Eid congregational prayers across the country and in compliance with the protocol against mass gathering issued by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.
