Leading opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Mohammadu Buhari laughs during an interview on February 6, 2015. Nigeria's main opposition candidate Muhammadu Buhari on Friday told AFP he was expecting to win next week's presidential election by a wide margin, despite talk of a close race. The February 14 poll, in which he is challenging incumbent Goodluck Jonathan, has been seen as too close to call, leading to a possible run-off if neither man secures a first-round majority.

Buhari Attends Juma’at Prayers At Villa Mosque

President Muhammadu Buhari participated in Friday’s Juma’at prayer at the Presidential Villa Mosque.

Subsequently, he decided that henceforth, he will mostly observe the Juma’at prayers with other Muslims at the Presidential Villa Mosque.

The President took the decision out of consideration for avoidable hardships imposed on members of the public by road closures and other security measures which Presidential movements to the National Mosque necessitate.

Accordingly, said Mr Femi Adesina, Media Adviser to the President in a statement in Abuja on Friday, “Buhari has decided that henceforth, he will mostly observe the Juma’at prayers with other Muslims at the Presidential Villa Mosque.

“The President will still join the larger Muslim Community for Friday prayers at the National Mosque and other mosques in Abuja occasionally.”
