Buhari Attends Juma’at Prayers At Aso Rock Mosque To Avoid Causing Traffic Jam In Abuja On Fridays

June 26, 2015

President Muhammadu Buhari participated in today's Juma'at prayer at the Presidential Villa Mosque, a State House press statement said. 


It explained that Mr. Buhari did so out of consideration for traffic 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,” the statement said, adding that he will occasionally join the larger Muslim community for Friday prayers at the National Mosque and other mosques in Abuja.
