As Muslims celebrate Eid-Ul-Fitr, to mark the end of the month-long period of Ramadan fasting, prayers and devotion, President John Dramani Mahama is urging all Muslims, and indeed all Ghanaians, to deepen their spiritual beliefs, strengthen moral values and re-commit their hearts and minds to activities and actions that demonstrate the true benefits of their faith.
The President extended his hearty congratulations to all Muslim brothers and sisters who have gone through the fast successfully.
“Ramadan has been a period of deep reflection, love and sacrifice,” the President noted. “It was also a moment when the Muslim faithful offered prayers to Allah, not just for themselves but also for our communities and the nation as a whole. May the prayers that have been offered to Almighty Allah receive favourable responses,” the President said.
President Mahama also commended the role of leaders of the Islamic faith and other faiths in ensuring that Ghana enjoys sustained peace, stability and togetherness among all the citizens.
“Once again, congratulations to all of Ghana’s Muslims, as the whole nation takes a break to celebrate Eid-Ul-Fitr. Barka da Sallah,” he added.
The President will celebrate the occasion with Muslims at the Kumasi Central Mosque on Monday, 28th July 2014. At the same time, Vice-President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur will be joining Muslim worshippers at the Independence Square in Accra to celebrate the feast of Eid-Ul-Fitr.
