On behalf of the Presidential Candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo, and the entirety of the New Patriotic Party, I wish my fellow Muslims, Ramadan Mubarak as we begin this sacred month long Ramadan fast.
It is my hope that we would use this period of fasting to promote the virtues of peace, forgiveness, good neighborliness, fellow feeling and generosity in our communities and the nation at large.
I also urge us to use this unique month of spiritual engagement to pray for the peace, unity and progress of the land before, during and after the upcoming General elections and transition.
Also, I call on us to use this period of forgiveness to pray for our departed souls as well as pray to Allah to rain his healing powers on those who need health redemption.
At the end of this sacred month, it is my hope that we would have moved some steps closer to realizing our great aspirations as individuals, as a community and as a nation and that Allah would have blessed us abundantly.
Once again, I wish you Jummah Mubarak and Ramadan Kareem.
May Allah be our guide.
