Muslims across Ghana joined the global community in celebrating Eid ul-Adha, with the government designating Monday, June 17, 2024, as a public holiday to mark the occasion. Eid ul-Adha, a significant Muslim festival, commemorates Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael in obedience to God’s command. The celebration involves the ritual sacrifice of animals, such as lambs, with the meat distributed among family, friends, and the needy.

The festival also signifies the end of the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. Former President John Dramani Mahama extended heartfelt Eid Mubarak wishes to the Muslim community, encouraging them to demonstrate love and compassion during this festive season. Additionally, he appealed for their prayers and support in the upcoming December elections.
