Leader of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged Ghanaian Muslims to pray for Allah to choose a good leader for Ghana.
He also asks Muslims to pray for peace and prosperity for Ghana.
These were contained in his Eid ul-Fitr message to Muslims issued on Wednesday, July 6.
Muslims across the world are marking the day, which signifies the end of Ramadan, the end to 30 days of fasting.
“Over the course of the month, Muslims have cultivated and inculcated the spirit of good, and strived to defeat the spirit of vice,” Nana Akufo-Addo stated.
“I pray that these values continue to permeate every area of our national life, so we can defeat the ills that plague our society.”
As regards the upcoming general elections, he called on Muslims to “pray for Allah to choose for Ghana, in this election year, a leadership of commitment, competence, and compassion”.
“I wish you well as you celebrate Eid ul-Fitr.”
