Mr Seth Owusu Ibrahim, President of the Ghana Muslim Academy, organizers of the competition, appealed to Muslim students to abide by the true teachings of Islam which espouse hard work, love, peace and unity.

He appealed to religious bodies to come together and work towards the socio-economic development of the country.

Brother Issah Abubakar, Chairman of the Education Committee of the Academy, urged school heads to support and encourage Muslim students to participate in various quiz competitions to enable them to improve upon their academic standards.
