Ganduje begs clerics: Deliver short sermons at Eid-el-Fitri prayers
Governor Umar Ganduje of Kano State has advised Islamic clerics in the state to deliver “short sermons” during the Eid-el-Fitri congregational prayers which he okayed to hold despite instructions from the Federal Government which advised otherwise.
In a statement on Saturday by his Chief Press Secretary, Abba Anwar, the governor said the Eid prayer would be held across all the 44 local governments in the state.
He said Muslim faithful must obey all protocols provided by health authorities during the congregational prayers.
“As counseled by the congregation of our learned Islamic scholars, alongside Imams, it is advised that short sermons are to be read during this Eid prayer because of the COVID-19 challenges we are being faced with.
“People should quickly disperse to their homes immediately after the Prayer and continue to observe all the protocols,” he was quoted in the statement. Punch
