Government’s Statement on the End of Ramadan

Presidential Press Secretary Sam Mannah

As the Islamic Community climaxes a month-long fasting and sacred encounter with Allah, the President of the Republic, His Excellency George Manneh Weah, would like to wish the entire Muslim Community a Happy Eid Mubarak.

The President cannot emphasize enough the longstanding contributions the Islamic Community has made to the society, and as such reaffirms his Government’s unwavering support and commitment to the Islamic Community and to the promotion of religious tolerance.

In respect of the sacred nature of the day to the Islamic Faith, the President hereby informs all Muslims within the employ of the Government of Liberia that they are at liberty to take this day off from work at no repercussion to them, as they join their Islamic brothers and sisters celebrate the joyous and festive Eid Mubarak.

It is the hope and prayer of the President that the month-long Ramadan period will yield bountiful blessings for the Nation as we work collectively towards a prosperous and better Liberia.

On behalf of the President, I would like to once again wish all Muslims a Happy and Blessed Eid Mubarak!

Signed:

Sam Mannah Presidential Press Secretary
