The Taraba state Deputy Governor Alhaji Haruna Manu has commended the people of the state for their compliance to COVID-19 protocols.
Manu, who gave the commendation on Friday at the Taraba State University Eid Ground in Jalingo said that the compliance by the people of the state had minimised spread of the pandemic in the state.
Manu called on the Muslim Ummah to use the period of Sallah and pray against further spread of the disease and for restoration of peace in the state.
“This Sallah celebration is unique because we have celebrated it in low keys due to the pandemic.
“I am appealing to the Muslim Ummah to pray against further spread of the disease not only in Taraba but all over the world.
“I also urge our Muslim faithful to pray for the unity and peace in our dear state and country at large” he said.
