Pictures of the mats went viral on social media, drawing the condemnation of many, especially Muslims whose religion frowns at the use of images on items of worship.
“The inclusion of my picture on the praying mat by a support group was misguided, even with the best of intentions,” he tweeted on Friday.
“It didn’t emanate from my campaign team. I have deep respect for the Muslim faith and indeed, for every other religion. We will never mock any faith, ethnicity or gender. We are one Nigeria.”
