As Muslims across the country celebrate Eid, Chief Imam Osman Nuhu Sharubutu will lead Eid-ul-Adha prayers in the newly commissioned national mosque.
The Muslim community’s leadership expects congregants to follow safety protocols when they attend prayers at the Kanda Mosque, which was only recently commissioned.
The spokesperson for the national Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu said, “The Chief Imam will lead the Eid-ul-Adha Salah at the national mosque at 9:00am. This will be in the history of the new national mosque, the first time the Eid is being conducted by the national Chief Imam.”
He continued, “The Chief Imam’s decision to lead the Eid-ul-Adha there is a recognition of the new variant of the Covid-19 virus which is further spreading and more people are being infected. The Chef Imam as a leader who cares for our health and safety decided not to go to the Independence Square but rather to pray at the Kanda National Mosque.”
Mr Shaibu also said, “When you are coming there to join the Salah of the Eid-ul-Adha, please come with your own personal mask, sanitizer, wash your hands and then you will be allowed to enter. If you come without these things, you may not be allowed to enter.”
