In line with coronavirus-enforced restrictions, President Muhammadu Buhari has cancelled the annual Christmas get-together party at the Presidential Villa DAMMYLINK reports.

Buhari annually hosts religious and community leaders in the villa for the Christian holiday, but it will not take place this year according to a press statement released by the presidency.

Buhari’s spokesperson, Garba Shehu, said on Thursday, December 24, 2020 that the cancelation was in line with the latest protocols announced by the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19.

“The President urges all citizens to, in line with the prescribed protocol, observe social distancing, use face masks, wash hands frequently and avoid overcrowding of public spaces, markets, shopping centres, offices and places of worship.

“President Buhari equally appeals to citizens to discourage all non-essential travels during the holiday season,” Shehu said.

The PTF earlier this week announced a number of new restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19, including the nationwide shutdown of bars, night clubs, event centres, and recreational venues.
