The mosque located inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja resumed religious activities today with Juma’at service after weeks of closure due to the restriction placed on worship places as part of measures to curtail the spread of COVID-19.
The guidelines issued by the Presidential Taskforce for reopening worship centres include that worship centres shall make provision for washing of hands, use alcohol-based sanitizers, use of face masks and ensuring physical distancing among other precautionary measures.
When the mosque in the Presidential Villa resumed service, Buhari led some top government officials and his aides to participate in the first Juma’at after many weeks.
Social distancing was observed in the sitting arrangement inside the mosque tucked between the President’s office and the Council Chamber.
All worshipers, except the President, also used face masks as recommended by the Presidential Taskforce.
One of the President’s media aides, Bashir Ahmad, shared some photographs from the service on Twitter with the inscription:
