As Muslims celebrate Eid al-Adha, the National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA) has urged Nigerians to take deliberate steps to protect themselves especially as Nigeria battles HIV/AIDS and COVID-19.

The Director-General, National Agency for the Control of AIDS (NACA), Dr Gambo Aliyu, in a statement in Abuja, implores Nigerians in the spirit of the celebration to avoid risky behaviour and follow all laid down protocols to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS and COVID-19

“We should remember the lessons that come with this festive period and relate it to our individual lives, as we all continue to strive to curtail the spread of COVID-19 and fight HIV/AIDS to the finish in Nigeria,” Aliyu said.

He also advises Nigerians to know their HIV status, as it remains the gateway to HIV/AIDS Prevention, Care and Treatment.
