President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday joined other Muslim faithful to observe the two raka’at Juma’at prayer following the reopening of the Aso Villa Mosque in Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that only few Muslim faithful were admitted into the Mosque in line with the directives and guidelines of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 on public gathering.
NAN reports that the Federal Capital Territory Administration had earlier issued guidelines for the reopening of places of worships in the six Area Councils.
Those in attendance, according to NAN, were not only tested, but sanitised against the deadly Coronavirus Disease as part of measures to keep the Presidential Villa free of the virus.
NAN further reports that the protocol of social distancing was also strictly observed in line with guidelines on public gathering.
Only senior staff of the Villa were allowed to attend the prayer session.
