President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday joined other Muslims for the closing session of the Tafsir at the State House Mosque.

Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, disclosed this in a statement titled ‘President Buhari joins prayers for unity, peace as Muslims end Tafsir.’

Shehu said prayers were said for Allah’s protection to be upon the nation, its people and the leaders after the President and worshippers listened to the final round of the daily interpretation of the Quran delivered by Abdulwahid Sulaiman, the Chief Imam.

The statement read in part, “In today’s episode, the Imam reviewed the virtues of the Ramadan and prayed against disunity, unrest, anger and crimes. He also prayed to God for peace, harmony and security for the nation and its people.

“In a short sermon to commemorate the end of the exercise, Abdulwahid said we desperately need God’s peace in view of the challenges facing the nation and urged all citizens to do justice to one another and seek restoration through repentance, humility and love.”
