President Muhammadu Buhari has attended Friday Muslim prayers at the mosque inside the presidential villa.
The president, who has been ill, had not been seen in public for weeks, fueling speculations about his health.
Buhari also missed cabinet meetings for three consecutive weeks, but his wife, Aisha, said his health was not as bad as “perceived”.
The president has not disclosed the nature of his ailment.
On Friday, Mr. Buhari arrived the mosque at exactly 1:28 p.m. alongside his aide-de-camp, chief security officer, personal physician and State Chief of Protocol.
Dressed in all white attire, he walked briskly from his official residence to the mosque and back, covering about 600 metres.
He stopped to greet people who told him they wished him full recovery, answering “Amen”.
Buhari was spotted discussing with NSA Babagana Munguno immediately after observing Juma’at prayer at the presidential villa on Friday.
