Happening now: Buhari observes Juma’at service at Aso villa

President Muhammadu Buhari is currently attending Jumaat service at the presidential villa mosque.

Last Friday, the president did not attend the service, fuelling speculation about his health.

Garba Shehu, presidential spokesman, confirmed to TheCable that the president was at the mosque. He said pictures of him would be released soon.

In the past few days, there has been uncertainty over the health of the president.

He was absent from three consecutive meetings of the federal executive council (FEC). His absence caused rumours to ripple that he was gravely ill.

But on Tuesday, Aisha, the president’s wife, said her husband was not as ill as being perceived.

‎She said the president had taken briefs from some officials of the government on the day.

Some prominent Nigerians like Femi Falana; human rights lawyer, and Debo Adeniran; an activist, have called on the president to take urgent leave and attend to his health.
