The Minister of the FCT, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello has congratulated Muslims in the Territory on the celebration of Eid-el-Kabir and urged them to use the occasion to offer supplication to Almighty Allah for a quick end to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Minister, who said this as part of his Sallah message, reminded the Muslim Ummah that the celebration of Eid-el-Kabir is significant because it is a festival of sharing and caring for the less fortunate members of the society and urged them to use the occasion to reach out to the needy.
Mallam Bello also called on residents not to be complacent about COVID-19 as it still remains a highly infectious and deadly disease.
The Minister used the occasion to express his appreciation on behalf of the FCTA and residents of the FCT, to all health and other essential workers in the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19.
Mallam Bello urged residents to enjoy the festivities from the safety of their homes as all recreational parks and other leisure locations remain closed.
