President Akufo-Addo urges Muslims to abide by Ramadan principles

Accra,President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has in a message commemorating the start of Ramadan, exhorted Muslims to commit to the principles of love, sacrifice and dedication to duty, as Ghana strive on the path of development.

He said Muslims should strive to live by the values of Ramadan- the holy month of fasting- instituted for Muslims to dedicate themselves to God and to the service of humankind.

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 realising this objective, he said.
