President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday joined the Muslim faithful all over the world who thronged neighbourhood mosques for the Ramadan Tafsir, the translation and explanation of the Quran.

At the mosque in the Aso Rock Villa, Abuja, the Chief Imam, Abdulwaheed Abubakar, opened the exercise with gratitude to God for freeing the President of the ailment that kept him away from the country throughout this period last year.

According to a statement by presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, the cleric wished Mr Buhari full health and the energy he needs to discharge the requirements of his office.

He thanked Nigerians for their prayers for the president and the nation, urging them to submit to the will of their creator.

Mr Abdulwaheed also prayed to Allah for peaceful elections in the coming year.
