    Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir El-Rufai has announced that congregational prayers can be held in open spaces in celebration of Eid-el-Kabir celebration.

    The governor made this known in an Eid el-Kabir message on Friday, even as he called for prayers for the peace, progress and development of the country.

    In a statement signed by the Special Adviser on Media and Communication, Mr Muyiwa Adekeye, the governor urged citizens to remain conscious of the continuing peril of COVID-19 and to protect themselves and others by complying with the health protocols.

    The governor warned residents to take personal responsibility, given that, “this is the first religious festival since the COVID-19 pandemic began.

    “Congregational prayers in open spaces are permitted.

    “While strict lockdown conditions had since been eased, the dangers from the virus had not abated, making it important that citizens should continue to show concern for the health and well being of others,” the statement added
