Eid-el-Kabir: Kano government bans Sallah festivities

1 min read

Kano State Government has cancelled all traditional Sallah
festivities to celebrate the Eid-el-Kabir in the state.
The government said the decision was part of its effort to
consolidate on the successes achieved in the fight against
COVID-9 and the relaxation of lockdown in many states of
the federation, including Kano. The state’s Commissioner of Information, Malam Muhammad
Garba, in a briefing with journalists on Wednesday, said the
decision was taken at the State Executive Council’s meeting
held on Tuesday.
He said, while permission was granted for the conduct of Eid
congregational prayers across the state, such would be
under strict observance of safety protocols, which are also
to be supervised by government officials.
Garba added that all the five Emirs in the state would go to
the Eid Prayer Ground in their respective domains in motor
vehicle, while there would be no visit to Shettima House,
gathering for Hawan Daushe, Hawan Nassarawa and other
traditional outings in the Emirates.
He added that government would assist in the provision of
safety materials that included face masks and hand
sanitizers as well as ensure strict observance of social
distancing at the praying grounds.
