President Akufo-Addo has urged all Muslims in the country to use the celebration of this year’s Eid-ul-Adha to pray for peace for Ghana as we count down to election 2020.
He also called on all Ghanaians to sacrifice their abilities and talents to “the building of Ghana Beyond Aid.”
President Akufo-Addo in a Facebook post today [Friday, July 31, 2020] to wish all Muslims in Ghana and around the world a happy Eid-ul-Adha celebration, said “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 this of us – that we sacrifice our abilities and talents to the building of a Ghana Beyond Aid.”
He noted that the Eid-ul-Adha “is a celebration of the true essence of Islam – peace and submission to the will of Allah.”
