President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday joined worshippers for the closing session of the Ramadan Tafsir at the State House Mosque.
According to a statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President, Mallam Garba Shehu, the session offered prayers for Allah’s protection upon the nation, its people and the leaders.
