He made it known that the guidelines were mandatory in order to safeguard public health.

Buhari made this announcement in his Eid-el-Kabir message made available to journalists in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu.

The statement was titled “Sallah message: President Buhari commends Muslims and Christians for understanding in COVID-19 guidelines.”

From what we gathered via Shehu, the President said the outbreak of coronavirus has made it difficult for people to gather in places of worship as they used to, urging worshipers to follow the guidelines for the safety of their lives, and loved ones.

Shehu quoted Buhari as saying,

“The coronavirus has had devastating adverse impacts on our social, economic and spiritual lives.

“The preventive guidelines we have introduced to contain the spread of this deadly disease have unfortunately limited people’s freedom to gather and worship in large numbers in mosques and churches.

“Every measure that has been introduced to contain this disease may have its unintended consequences on the daily lives of our people, and I, therefore, call on Muslims and other faiths to continue to show more understanding with the government as we take correct steps to protect our people through the social distancing.

“No elected government would intentionally take away its people’s religious freedom by limiting the number of people that will gather in worship centres at the same time.
