Rawlings admonishes Muslims to exorcise negative tendencies Former President, Jerry John Rawlings has sent his family’s warm wishes to Muslims as they celebrate Eid ul Adha.

He also advised celebrants to “remember to pray for peace, love and progress in our country and commit ourselves to exorcising negative tendencies that do not benefit us or our society”.

Below is his statement to Muslims

On the occasion of Eid ul Adha, Nana and I join Muslims to mark the festival of sacrifice.

Eid ul Adha celebrates Ibrahim’s will to submit to God through the ultimate sacrifice – his son. It is a period for us to reflect on how much we are willing to commit to what is good, holy and noble.

Our prayers and sacrifices to Allah as we mark the day should be full of a common desire to see to the good of our families, communities and especially the deprived. Let us remember to pray for peace, love and progress in our country and commit ourselves to exorcising negative tendencies that do not benefit us or our society.

Eid Mubarak! Happy Eid to all!
