As the Ghanaian Muslim community mark their Eid-ul-Fitr celebration, President Akufo-Addo has asked the youth to be moderation in how they celebrate the day.
President Akufo-Addo was addressing a gathering of Muslims at the Black Star Square in Accra, to mark the end of the Ramadan season.
In his speech, the president noted that while the day called for celebration and happy activities, the youth should restrain themselves even while they engage in the festivities, to avoid any accidents or harm to themselves and others.
"We have a right to make merry and celebrate but let us celebrate and make merry in moderation and I’m praying for a travel free and accident free Eid celebrations," he said.
President Akufo-Addo also asked the community to show love and communal support towards each other and the rest of the Ghanaian citizenry, even as the Ramadan season passes.
During his address at the gathering, the president further asked the community to be conscious of any extremists that may attempt to disrupt the peaceful co-existence that exists among Ghanaians for their own selfish reasons.
In a post on his Facebook wall, Dr. Bawumia urged Muslims to hold on the values of love, patience, empathy and sacrifice cultivated during the period of the fasting.
He also asked them to pray for Ghana and rededicate themselves to the service of the country and humanity.
