The 2016 torch bearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has extended his fraternal greetings to the Muslim community on the commemoration of the Eid ul-Fitr.
He used the occasion to urge them to pray for peace as the country readies itself for the polls expressing hope that Allah will choose for the country a leadership of commitment, competence, and compassion.
“On the occasion of the celebration of the Eid ul-Fitr festival, I extend fraternal greetings of peace and blessings to the Muslim Community in Ghana and the world over. Eid ul-Fitr is a celebration of one month of devotion and obedience to the will of Allah. Over the course of the month, Muslims have cultivated and inculcated the spirit of good, and strived to defeat the spirit of vice. I pray that these values continue to permeate every area of our national life, so we can defeat the ills that plague our society. I wish you well, as you celebrate Eid ul-Fitr”
