President Muhammadu Buhari, his family members, President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila and other Muslim faithful on Thursday observed the Eid prayers at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the prayer was held at the fore court of the villa with members of the first family, including the First Lady, Aisha Buhari, the president’s children and grandchildren in attendance.

Today’s Eid prayer represented another prayer performed at the Villa, as against the usual tradition of going to prayer grounds, in line with the Presidential Steering Committee’s  directive against mass gathering, to curtail the spread of COVID-19.
