President Buhari Explains Why He Stopped Attending Juma’at Service At National Mosque


President Muhammadu Buhari will henceforth mostly observe the Juma’at prayers with other Muslims at the Presidential Villa Mosque instead of the National Mosque in Abuja.


In a statement made available to journalists on Friday by the Special Adviser to the
President on Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina. Adesina said Buhari took the decision out of consideration for the hardships always imposed on members of the public by road closures during presidential movements.

The statement reads:


“President Muhammadu Buhari participated in today’s Juma’at prayer at the Presidential Villa Mosque.

“President Buhari did so out of consideration for avoidable hardships imposed on members of the public by road closures and other security measures which Presidential movements
to the National Mosque necessitate.

“Accordingly, the President has decided that henceforth he will mostly observe the Juma’at prayers with other Muslims at the Presidential Villa Mosque.

“President Buhari will still join the larger Muslim Community for Friday prayers at the National Mosque and other mosques in Abuja occasionally.”
