Akufo-Addo Sends Message To Muslims

On behalf of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and on my own behalf, I wish to congratulate Muslims on the successful completion of the Ramadan fast. It is the hope of the NPP that the one month of spiritual engagement and intercessory prayer would spur us on to higher heights of achievement and economic and political fulfillment. I send you best wishes and by extension all Muslims across the world as you celebrate the annual Eid-al-Fitr festival. As a people of Abrahamic faiths, both Christians and Muslims share a common bond of devotion and commitment to God. We have a deep respect for your commitment to the ideals of God and His word. The Eid al-Fitr celebration commemorates the end of Ramadan, a period of intense devotion and reflection – a time when Muslims fast during the day and perform prayers at night, reciting and listening to the entire Qur’an over the course of the month. I am confident that this intense period of devotion has inspired in you a commitment not only to God but also to country. We believe that the intense flow of barakat (divine grace) that this one month of spiritual exercise has engendered will trigger a respect for neighbor and country that will enable us all as God’s servants to join hands in the difficult task of nation building. I urge you to continue to demonstrate continually a sense of unity and oneness in the years ahead. Once again, I am privileged to join many other Ghanaians in wishing you all a happy Eid al-Fitr celebration. Baraka Da Salla! Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo NPP 2012 Presidential Candidate
