COVID-19: Tambuwal Warns Against Congregational Preaching During Ramadan


Sokoto state Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal has warned against congregating in a large assembly in the guise of the usual preaching and voluntary midnight prayers during the holy month of Ramadan.

The warning is coming following the suspension of all public preaching and voluntary midnight prayers by the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs in Nigeria Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Tambuwal gave the warning while receiving a situation report from the Task Force Committee on COVID-19 in the state. Tambuwal also announced a ban on all international border markets across the state as well as making use of face mask in public place compulsory.

He said this step was taken in order to regulate the convergence of people in one place, a situation that would only increase the risk of getting infected by COVID -19.

The governor said Instead of the traditional public preaching the state government will now sponsor airing of the tafsir (preaching) of the Ulamas on television, radio stations in the state as well as online across the various social media platforms.

On the ban on the markets, Governor Tambuwal said it became necessary as the state task force on COVID-19 has submitted that their existence was contributing to the spread of disease.

Tambuwal also approved the extension of the existing partial lockdown by two weeks, insisting the enforcement of the ban on inter-state movement must not be compromised.
