The Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, on Sunday urged Muslims across the country to observe forthcoming Eld-Kabir festival in line with coronavirus regulations in their respective States.

Abubakar, who is also the President-General, Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs (NSCIA), gave this advice via a statement issued by Professor Salisu Shehu, Deputy Secretary-General of NSCIA.

While congratulating Muslims in the country on the forthcoming 1441AH Eld-Kabir festival, he enjoined them to observe the Eld-Kabir festival according to the established protocol in their various communities and locations.

The Sultan warned that in places where the ban on public congregational prayers and socio-religious gatherings was still in force, Muslims should be law-abiding, while appreciating that intentions superseded actions.
