RAWLINGS, NANA KONADU CONGRATULATE MUSLIMS
Nana and I congratulate the Muslim community for concluding the month-long fasting period, which has culminated in the celebration of Eid ul Fitr.
Your month-long period of sacrifice has accorded you the opportunity to renew your spiritual bond with Allah and we have good cause to join you in celebration.
As you conclude the period of fasting we enjoin you to offer prayers not only for good strength and long life but also for our country Ghana and our brothers and sisters across the globe.
The past month has been a challenging period for our country, but Allah guided us successfully through a painful transition.
We go into Presidential and Parliamentary elections in December and as the political campaign resumes we have to pray for responsible political campaigns devoid of lies and acrimony and also pray that our elections will be free, fair and incident-free.
We once again congratulate you for your sense of spiritual dedication and pray that as we celebrate Eid ul Fitr we will do so in the true spirit of joy, love and peace.
Signed: Jerry and Nana Konadu Rawlings
