Lockdown Measures Won’t Go Beyond Necessary— Buhari


President Muhammadu Buhari has assured Nigerians that the lockdown measures would be reviewed from time to time to ease the increasing hardships on the people.

He noted that “for the first time in recent years, the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a heavy toll on the people’s spiritual, social and economic lives.”

President Buhari said this in his Sallah message to Muslims on the occasion of Eid-el-Fitr, while urging Muslims to keep their spirits up in spite of the coronavirus pandemic

He noted that he is aware of inconveniences the tough measures have brought on the lives of Nigerians, including limiting religious activities and gatherings in large numbers.

He said the pandemic has “caught the world off guard, and has put a damper on what would otherwise have been a time of celebration for the Muslim faithful to mark the end of the Ramadan fasting period.”

According to President Buhari, “this year’s fasting period was particularly challenging for Muslims because they had to forgo many important aspects of their daily worship, including the routine congregations for prayer and the recitation and interpretation of the Holy Qur’an as well as traveling for the lesser pilgrimage to Makkah

“it is not easy to give up many of these important duties and activities, but it became imperative to do so in order to control or limit the spread of this deadly disease

“Let me use this opportunity to commend the sacrifices of both Muslims and Christians for their cooperation in the enforcement of the social distancing guidelines.” He lamented.
