The Ghana Muslim Students’ Association (GMSA) has pleaded with the Director – General of the Ghana Education Service (GES) to consider extending the reopening date for both final and continuing students.

In a press statement sighted by Bricy Boateng, the association explained that due to their Eid-ul fitr celebration which is expected to take place in 3 to 4 days, it deemed it fit that today being the beginning of the second semester, the management of GES should postpone the reopening date to next week on Monday, April 24, 2023.

“It will be recalled that students went on break on the 6th of April 2023 and are expected per schedule to return on the 17h of April 2023.”

“Knowing this year’s Eid-ul fitr celebration will come only 3 or 4 days after the resumption, we petition that the reopening date be postponed to Monday, 24th April 2023 by management of the GES acting in consonance with relevant parties as the circumstances may demand.”

Additionally, the statement revealed that their annual ritual is so important to them because when the date is postponed, it allows students to spend much time with their families whiles reducing the tendency of absenteeism.

“Considering the fact that Eid is an important religious ritual, we believe this will offer Muslim students the opportunity to observe it with their families and reduce the tendency of truancy among students during this sacred period of Ramadan and ftr.”
