President Julius Maada Bio has observed his 2023 Eid Ul-Fitr Prayers at Jamatul Ilmu-Zikr Mosque in Hill Station, Freetown.

The event will be the last under the President’s first term in office.

Sierra Leone will go into its multi-tier elections in June where Bio is seeking re-election for a second term in office. He faces competition from the opposition All People’s Congress (APC) candidate, Samura Kamara.

Taking to his Twitter page, Bio wrote; “Today, Friday 21/04/2023, I performed the #EidUlFitr prayers with my #Muslim brothers and sisters at the Jamatul Ilmu-Zikr Mosque at the Hill Station Community in Freetown.

“May the blessings of Allah (SWT) be with you and your family on this joyous day of #Eid.

“May this Eid mark a new beginning of greater prosperity, success, and happiness in our beloved Land That We Love, #SierraLeone.”
