2020 Elections :Pray For Peace, Prosperity – Akufo-Addo To …
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has appealed to Muslims on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha festival to pray for “peace and prosperity” ahead of the 2020 elections.
He asked Muslims to pray for “Allah to choose for Ghana, in this election year, a leadership of commitment, competence, and compassion.”
“Eid-ul-Adha is a celebration of the true essence of Islam, peace, and submission to the will of Allah. I pray we use the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha to reflect on the spirit of sacrifice and loyalty that inspired Prophet Ibrahim to accept Allah’s command to sacrifice his son Ishmael. Our nation requires that we sacrifice our abilities and talents to the nation-building of a Ghana Beyond Aid.”
“I urge all Muslims to take advantage of this Holy Month of Zhul-hajj to pray for the peace of our nation, as we count down to election 2020.”
“On my part, I pledge to continue to do my utmost to help build a society of opportunities for all, irrespective of creed, ethnicity, or gender.”
He pleaded with Muslims to observe the COVID-19 preventive protocols during the Eid celebrations.
“Even as we celebrate, I urge all of us to continue to observe the protocols that will keep us safe from COVID-19. I am confident that, Insha Allah, next year, we shall celebrate together in a more brotherly and sisterly fashion.
Muslims in Ghana are joining their counterparts across the world to celebrate Eid-ul-Adha festival.
