President Buhari celebrates Eid ul-Fitr in Asorock with his family (photos)

President Muhammadu Buhari celebrates Eid Ul-Fitr at the statehouse Abuja alongside his wife, Aisha, and his children.

Eid Ul-Fitr is celebrated to mark the end of the Ramadan fast. Buhari had directed that activities to celebrate Eid Ul-Fitri to mark the end of Ramadan fast should be low-key.

According to a statement by his Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Media and Publicity Mallam Garba Shehu, the President, just like last year, canceled the traditional Sallah homage during which time he receives religious, traditional, and political leaders at the State House.

The President will be restricted to having a low-key Eid prayer on the forecourt of Presidential Villa with his family and few public servants.

The President shared photos from the celebration and wrote;

We must resist the temptation to retreat into our communities. I urge our political and religious leaders as well as traditional rulers to encourage our citizens to turn towards one another in love and compassion.

Unity and solidarity among all citizens, Muslims and Christians are imperative especially at a time when our country is faced with multiple challenges which are surmountable only when we come together as one.

It is important that we remember how we share, through our faiths, common bonds that should serve to unite us and not allow ourselves to succumb to those who seek to divide us, using our two great religions, for their own selfish advantages.

We should jointly pray against the tragic incidents of kidnapping and banditry and the desperate quest for political power expressed through blackmail against the existence of our country as a united entity.

We must resist the temptation to retreat into our communities. I urge our political and religious leaders as well as traditional rulers to encourage our citizens to turn towards one another in love and compassion.

During the holidays and beyond, I urge all Nigerians to continue to observe all COVID-19 prevention measures, and to celebrate responsibly.
