President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday failed to worship at the Presidential Villa, Abuja mosque.
The reason for his absence was not known as at press time.

Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, Senate President (second left) representing President Muhammadu Buhari at the Jummat prayers commemorating the 2017 Armed Forces Rememberance Day. With him (from left) are Senator Sulieman Hunkuyi, Sen. Kabiru Gaya, Sen. Kabiru Marafa, Minister of FCT, Mohammed Bello, Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai and the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris at the National Mosque, Abuja yesterday.

But the State House had on Thursday issued a statement that the President was recuperating at his private residence, a reason why he is rarely seen in the public.

However Governors Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun State); Abdulaziz Yari (Zamfara State) and Abdulahi Ganduje (Kano State) were amongst those that worshiped at the Villa Mosque.
