Vanguard reported that the President, the First Lady Aisha Buhari, some of their children, grandchildren and relatives were at Mambila Barracks for the prayers.
As we already know, Muslim faithfuls all over the world celebrate the Eid Al-Fitr after observing a month-long fast during the period of Ramadan. The Eid Al-Fitr means – the period of breaking the fast – and this year, it fell on May 2nd.
The day is usually celebrated in grand style, and it is regarded as the biggest Eid in the year. The Eid Al-Fitr is always observed to thank Allah for giving the strength and courage during the one month fast.
It was interesting to see the number one citizen in the country and members of his family participating in the prayers. We join our faith with them to say that may their prayers be answered.
