Buhari observes Jummat service at Aso Villa Mosque

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently at today’s Jumaat service at the presidential villa mosque.

His Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, in a statement on Thursday hinted that his principal might observe the prayers, while announcing that the Niger President, Mahamadou Issoufou, has moved his visit.

“All arrangements had been concluded for President Buhari to receive his Nigerien counterpart and his delegation at the forecourt of the Presidential Villa and attend the Jumaat prayers together as well as lunch, before the last-minute postponement,” Adesina said.

Buhari was absent at last Friday’s service, sparking speculation about his health.

He resumed at his desk on Tuesday  and took briefs from Abubakar Malami, Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF), and Maikanti Baru, Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).

The President however failed to convene the Federal Executive Council (FEC) for the fourth consecutive time on Wednesday.
