As we join our Moslem brothers and sisters all over the world to celebrate the Eid El-kabir, we continue to pray for the peace and safety of all Cross Riverians, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic.

As we show up at the mosque and at public places to celebrate with friends, it is important that everyone follow all the safety guidelines laid down by the Cross River State Government and NCDC.

In a press release, the Commissioner for Health and Chairman COVID-19 Dr Betta Edu said “Wearing a face mask helps protects us from the droplets that carry the COVID-19 virus. Please everyone should Take Responsibility for their health and that of their loved ones this period by encouraging them to use hand sanitizers, wash their hands often, avoid handshakes, avoid hugs and also use their mask even at home since the would be expecting visitors”.
