Mustapha Hamid, President Nana Akufo-Addo's spokesperson, has iterated that the Second Lady's outfit at Ghana's 60th Independence Day parade was fit for her to stand before God.
Communication Minister Hamid's comments follows a litany of comments on social media condemning the first lady for what deemed as a un-Muslim attire she wore at Ghana's 60th independence day parade.
Speaking on the Executive Breakfast Show (EBS) on Class91.3FM on Wednesday, March 8th, the communication minister dismissed criticism saying that the Second Lady did not expose her Awra and therefore could not be deemed non-Muslim.
Awra being any part of a woman or man’s body that is not supposed to be exposed according to Islamic teachings.

"Now a woman’s awra on the other hand is up to her ankle. Now Samira Bawumia was clad in an attire up to her feet. No part of her feet was showing, her hair was covered and so in that attire she could pray because her awra was covered.
If she qualified to stand before the almighty God in that dress, how didn’t she qualify to appear before humans? Humans and God, who is greater? The discourse in our country is… People now qualify to stand before God but they don’t qualify to stand before humans? I leave it to the judgment of the people.”
