AKUFO-ADDO’S EID-UL-FITR MESSAGE TO MUSLIMS
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.
On the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, I urge all Muslims to please pray for the peace and prosperity of our nation. Pray for Allah to choose for Ghana, in this election year, a leadership of commitment, competence, and compassion.
I wish you well, as you celebrate Eid ul-Fitr.
Barka da Salla!
