Ganduje added that this year’s Eid-el-Kabir festivities came at a trying moment occasioned by the debilitating effect of the Coronavirus pandemic across the globe.‎

‎The governor thanked Almighty Allah for his innumerable mercies that made it possible to witness this blessed day.

‎In his sermon, the Chief Imam of Kano, Prof Sani Zahradeen, urged Muslims faithful to pray for an end to the Coronavirus pandemic and insecurity in the country.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports thousands ‎of Muslims faithful including children dressed in colourful attires attended the prayer session.

NAN also reports that security personnel were deployed at the prayer grounds to enforce compliance with COVID-19 safety protocols.

‎Some of the residents, who spoke to NAN, commended the state government for making it possible for the Eid prayer to be conducted in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Alhaji Karami Animu, a resident, said that the gesture would enable them ‎to collectively pray for an end to the pandemic, insurgency, banditry and other security challenges in the country.
