The Kano state government has banned sallah festivities in the state due to the coronavirus pandemic. The state government made the announcement through its commissioner for Information.
Malam Muhammad Garba who made the announcement on Wednesday July 22, said the decision was taken to consolidate on the successes achieved in the fight against COVID-9 and the relaxation of lockdown in many states of the federation including Kano State.
While there would be no visit to Shettima House, gathering for Hawan Daushe, Hawan Nassarawa and other traditional outings in the Emirates, it is expected that the five Emirs will go to the Eid Prayer Ground in their respective domains in motor vehicle. Permission was granted for the conduct of Eid congregational prayers across the state and it was further gathered that the government would assist in the provision of safety materials that includes face masks and hand sanitizers as well as ensure strict observance of social distancing at the praying grounds.
