Nigeria’s President Buhari celebrated Sallah with his family in Abuja

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, July 31, joined other Muslim faithfuls across the country in celebration for Eid-El-Kabir.

The celebration of the Islamic festival was low key due to the coronavirus pandemic that has been ravaging the country and the rest of the world.

Sallah festivities have been banned in most parts of the north to check the spread of the deadly disease.

The Nigerian leader observed Eid El-Kabir prayers at home with his family in Abuja as part of the obligations of the celebration.

This was in line with advisories from the Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 and the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA).

President Buhari who usually receives dignitaries who come to pay him Sallah homage at the Aso Rock villa will not be accepting guests this year in adherence to the physical distancing measures put in place to check the spread of COVID-19.

The president was pictured with his wife, Aisha, his children and grandchildren as they celebrate Eid Mubarak.
