Mr Shehu also noted that the President will be conducting his Eid prayers at home with his family.

With the Eid-el-Fitr celebrations around the corner and the month-long Ramadan fast coming to an end, President Muhammadu Buhari will be conducting his Eid prayers with his family at home.

“This is in line with 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 as well as the protocol against mass gathering issued by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19”.

He added that the observance of the lockdown measures in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, put in place is to save lives and protect people from danger.
