We advise the public not to panic or attach anyspiritual connotation to the eclipse, as it is a natural occurrence which had been predicted by science. “In Abuja, there will be a partial eclipse with an obscurity of 60% and the first contact will be at about 7:17am, with maximum eclipse at 8:32am and the last at 10:00am.” Ale said.
