Akufo-Addo’s Ramadan message: Strive for love, sacrifice and dedication

President Nana Akufo-Addo urged Muslims to embody the principles of love, sacrifice and dedication to duty ingrained in the observance of Islam pillar of Ramadan.

Ramadan is observed by Muslims worldwide as a month of fasting to commemorate the first revelation of the Qur’an to the prophet Muhammad.

President Akufo-Addo also noted that these principles are also critical to fuelling development in Ghana.

“I pray that in this month and beyond, we strive to live by these values, so that, even beyond Ramadan, we continue to commit ourselves to the good of humankind and our fellow Ghanaians. We have an opportunity to realize our potential as the Black Star of Africa, and it is my belief that the principles that Ramadan seeks to inculcate in Muslims are important for realizing this objective.”

PRESIDENT AKUFO-ADDO’S RAMADAN MESSAGE TO MUSLIMS

I send fraternal greetings to Muslims in Ghana and around the world on the occasion of the Ramadan fast.

The month of Ramadan is that in which the Qur’an was revealed and which has been instituted for Muslims to dedicate themselves to God and to the service of humankind.

It is a month of intense devotion and commitment to the principles of love, sacrifice and dedication to duty.

I pray that in this month and beyond, we strive to live by these values, so that, even beyond Ramadan, we continue to commit ourselves to the good of humankind and our fellow Ghanaians.

We have an opportunity to realize our potential as the Black Star of Africa, and it is my belief that the principles that Ramadan seeks to inculcate in Muslims are important for realizing this objective.

Once again, I wish all Muslims the best of the month.

May the Almighty Allah bless us all, and make our nation great and strong.
