A third wave of Covid-19 has been detected, according to the Nigerian Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA).

It advised them to stick to non-pharmaceutical intervention procedures including face coverings, physical separation, and hand washing.

In a message to mark this year's Sallah celebrations, FCT Minister Malam Mohammed Bello raised the alarm.

Mallam Bello said;

as we celebrate the Eid festivities, we should please do so from the safety and comfort of our homes.” 

According to him,

”despite the seemingly low cases of positives and fatalities recorded in recent weeks, Covid-19 is still with us and remains a deadly disease.”

He urged residents, especially Muslims, to put the lessons learned during Ramadan into practice in order to strengthen the bond of brotherhood and unity.

"Let us be reminded that the Federal Capital Territory was built on a foundation of national unity with the strong conviction of our founding fathers that it is only when we stay together and work together, with a single purpose, that we can truly reach our potentials as a great nation,” he stated.

Standing firm

The Minister urged citizens to remain steadfast and resolute in their opposition to divisive and unpatriotic forces in society who do not wish them well as a country or people by continuing to care for one another regardless of ethnic or religious differences.

”Let us also remain vigilant and be security conscious at all times. Report to the security agencies all suspicious movements and characters in our communities and be more discerning with information that you imbibe or share especially from the social media.

”On our part, we will continue, in collaboration with the various security agencies, to put measures in place to safeguard the lives and properties of all residents of the FCT,”
Mallam Bello.

He said,

“on behalf of the FCT Administration, I most heartily felicitate with all residents of the Federal Capital Territory, especially the Muslim Ummah on the celebration of Eid al-Fitr.

” Most importantly, I congratulate us all on the successful completion of 30 days of Ramadan which involved   fasting, prayers and charity”.

” It is therefore an opportunity to thank Almighty Allah for the successful completion of this religious obligation and pray that our supplications to Him will be favourably received.”

”It was indeed gratifying to witness residents of the FCT reaching out to the less privileged members of the society regardless of ethnicity or religion in the spirit of oneness and caring for one another”

”I once again, congratulate the Muslim Ummah on the successful completion of Ramadan and I wish you all joyous and re-invigorating celebrations“,
he added.
