Muslims have been urged to pray for Allah to choose a competent and committed Ghanaian as President in the November polls.
Flagbearer of the New a Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made the call in a statement to wish Muslims commemorating the climax of their month long fasting and prayers today known as Eid ul-Fitr.
“On the occasion of Eid ul-Fitr, I urge all Muslims to please pray for the peace and prosperity of our nation. Pray for Allah to choose for Ghana, in this election year, a leadership of commitment, competence, and compassion,” Nana Addo added in a statement.
Nana Addo also urged Muslims to strive to desist from social vices, saying, “Eid ul-Fitr is a celebration of one month of devotion and obedience to the will of Allah. Over the course of the month, Muslims have cultivated and inculcated the spirit of good, and strived to defeat the spirit of vice. I pray that these values continue to permeate every area of our national life, so we can defeat the ills that plague our society".
