The Ghana Tourism Authority on Friday gave Muslim worshippers in Damongo a feel of the Valentine and chocolate season.
The authority led by its regional director, shared Ghanaian-made cocoa products as the season is also used to promote consumption of cocoa products in Ghana.
They gave worshippers chocolates, choco milo and chocolate drinks.
Isaac Opirah speaking to worshippers after the Friday prayers said the authority was in the region to ensure its tourism sector is developed.
He said they are putting measures in place and will do all they can to sell the tourism potential of the region.
“We are here in the Savannah Region to develop and promote the tourism sector, and we will do exactly that.”
He said they had to visit the mosque before the chocolate day because Friday was the last Jimah day before the 14th of February.
“As you know, Monday is Valentine’s Day which we also know is a chocolate day in Ghana and because this is the last Friday before 14th February, we are here to encourage you to consume Ghanaian made cocoa products because they are good for our health.”
Mr Opirah said apart from the health needs of cocoa products provides, consuming Ghanaian products will help generate wealth for the country.
The Chief Imam of the Damongo central mosque, Alhaji Amadu Musah thanked the authority for remembering them, saying it was the first time worshipers were getting such a treat.
He admonished the youth against using the day to engage in social vices.
“I want to remind the youth that the day is not for you to engage in things that are not Islamic, share the love with your mothers, your fathers, your children, and your spouses and don’t do what you are not supposed to do as Muslims.”
