President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed why he does not observe Jumaat prayers at the National Mosque in Abuja.
Buhari said his decision to observe his Jumaat at the Presidential villa was to prevent the constraints and inconveniences presidential movements may cause to the people.
While responding to Imams he received at the State House, he said:
“Regarding your request for me to be attending Jumaat prayers in the National Mosque, I implore you to note that I personally started observing Jumaat prayers in the State House in order to reduce hardships which people may pass through.”
Buhari also added that, “As you all know, Presidential movements require roadblocks and other attendant restrictions which could subject worshippers and other people to a lot of difficulties.”
