Accra: The National Chief Imam, Sheikh Usman Nuhu Sharubutu, has officially announced the sighting of the Shawwal and the ending of the Ramadan fast in Ghana.

At a press briefing, the Spokesperson of the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Armeyaw Shuaib, indicated that the National Hilal Committee has reported and authenticated the sighting of the crescent at various locations in the country.

These included areas such as Kenyasi in the Ashanti region, Fulanicope in the Volta region, Walewale in the North East region, Kwesimentim in the Western region, as well as Savelugu, Saboba, and Tamale, all in the Northern region.

He indicated that based on the sighting of the crescent, there would be no Ramadan fasting tomorrow, and Eid-ul-Fitr prayers would be held on Thursday, April 11, 2024.

“Tomorrow will be the first day of Shawwal. But given the fact that, according to our arrangement, an announcement has already been made to the government and Thursday has been declared a national holiday,” the spokesperson said.

Despite Thursday being declared a holiday, many Muslims in Ghana would be holding their Eid prayers on Wednesday due to the one-day delay in holding Eid prayers.
