He commended all Muslims for exhibiting responsibility and adhering to the President Akufo-Addo’s directives on the prevention of the spread of coronavirus in the country.
“Ghanaian Muslims behaved responsibly, and accepted those restrictions. Even as I speak, we still complying one of the reasons for which, no Muslim in this country are meeting in any open space to say their prayer.”
President Nana Akufo-Addo urged Muslims to stay at home and observe this years’ Ramadan with fasting and supplications.
