While commending the security agencies for the successes so far recorded in the fight against the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East , he advised Nigerians to take responsibility against the spread of COVID19 pandemic and also stay safe by observing physical and social distancing, personal and respiratory hygiene , as well as other regulations issued by relevant authorities.

As part of his admonition to Muslims on the celebration of Eidul-Fitr and his emphasis on individual responsibility for adherence to the COVID19 guidelines and regulations, the Minister reminded them to always obey constituted authorities as stated in the Glorious Qu’ran 4:59 where Allah says : O ye who believe! Obey Allah , and obey the Messenger , and those charged with authority among you . If ye differ in anything among yourselves , refer it to Allah and His Messenger , if ye do believe in Allah and the Last Day:
That is best ,and most suitable for final determination”.
