Presidency speaks as Buhari, others observe Juma’at in Aso Villa Mosque

The Presidency has said that President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, joined other worshippers for the Juma’at congregational service at the State House Mosque in Abuja.

The mosque had been closed for weeks due to the restriction placed on worship places across the country as parts of measure to curtail the spread of COVID-19.

But in a tweet on Friday, Media Aide to the President, Bashir Ahmad, said President Buhari led some top government officials and his aides to participate in the first Juma’at after many weeks.

Ahmad noted that all worshippers wore their masks except the President, adding that social distancing was observed, too, as prescribed by the NCDC

He also shared some photographs from the service on his social media platform with the inscription, “Photos from Juma’at prayers at the State House Mosque, Abuja this afternoon, President Muhammadu Buhari and other worshippers were in attendance.”

“Alhamdulillah, we observed first Juma’at prayers after many weeks. All worshippers wore their masks, and social distancing was observed, too, as prescribed by the NCDC. May Allah SWT bring an end to this pandemic, completely,” he added.
