In a video message released on his social media handles together with his wife, Samira Bawumia to congratulate Muslims for a successful end of Ramdan, the Vice President said this year's Ramadan fast has been a spiritually fulfilling exercise despite the restrictions brought about by the Coronavirus pandemic.

"We thank the Almighty Allah for seeing us through one of the most challenging Ramadans in recent times," the Vice President said in the video message.

"Due to the Coronavirus restrictions, we couldn't observe Ramadan the usual way in our various mosques with friends and loved ones.

"For the first time, I missed the unique and beautiful opportunity Ramadan offers us to interact, pray and have Iftar together as we have been doing over the years during my annual Ramadan tour."

"In-spite of the restrictions, it has been a fulfilling spiritual exercise and I pray to the Almighty Allah to reward our sacrifices during the holy month of Ramadan and also bless our nation."

As Muslims continue to observe coronavirus restrictions, the Vice President urged all to stay at home and enjoy the moment with families and loved ones.

"As we continue to observe the coronavirus restrictions and guidelines by celebrating Eid ul Fitr at home with our families, let us continue to pray for our families, loved ones and our dear nation."

"Together with my wife, Samira and the family, we wish you all Barka da Sallah. Eid Mubarak!"
