President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has joined Muslims in the country to celebrate this year’s Eid ul-Fitr festival.

Congratulating them for successfully completing their fast and marking the end of Ramadan, President Akufo-Addo said he appreciates their efforts in adhering to the ban on social gathering directive, which prevents them from congregating for prayers this year.

During Eid ul-Fitr, Muslims in the country gather at the Black Stars Square to pray. However, this year’s celebration will take place at their various homes because of the restriction on public gathering due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

For majority of Muslims in the country, it is the first time that they have gone through a period of fasting and ended without celebrating the Eid in the normal way.

Monday May 25 declared a public holiday

It is against this backdrop that President Akufo-Addo is commending all Muslims for supporting government’s efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19.

In a message to Muslims, President Akufo-Addo said, “I salute you for these sacrifices that you have made for our collective good. More importantly, you have made these sacrifices, specifically to save human lives.”

I am very hopeful that, next year, Muslims in the country will congregate as they have done over the years, and celebrate Eid ul-Fitr fully and without any restrictions. We will go back in joy to Black Star Square,” President Akufo-Addo added.
