Eid: You Need To Be Alive To Worship God, Islamic Council Tells Muslim Faithful


The Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs has warned Muslim faithful in Nigeria, who have insisted on observing Eid prayers in groups, to think twice and not jeopardise the achievements recorded by the Nigeria Center for Disease Control on curbing the spread of Coronavirus in the country.

Many state governors lifted the ban placed on religious gatherings as a measure to contain the spread of COVID-19.

Religious organisations had mounted pressure on the federal and state governments to open worship centres.

The Head of Media and Communication, NSCIA, Aselemi Ibrahim, in a chat with SaharaReporters on Friday in Abuja said people needed to be alive to worship God and that there was no need to congregate for Eid prayers.

He said, “The council can only appeal that COVIF-19 threat is real and you need to be alive to worship God.”
