I will speak up for Muslims – Akufo-Addo
President Akufo-Addo has pledged to be an effective ally of the Islamic community as his administration would not discriminate against any religious group.
“Today, I want to tell you that I am an ally of the Islamic community. I will collaborate with you to promote peace and harmony in our country.
“We need to work together as one people with a common interest,” the president stated.
Nana Akufo-Addo made these remarks when addressing Muslims at the 2018 Eid al-Adha celebration at the Black Star Square in Accra on Tuesday.
He said his administration would not relent on its effort in delivering prosperity and equal opportunity for all Ghanaians, as he rolls out policies and programmes to address economic challenges.
“My policy is to ensure social inclusion. Government is determined to ensure that no Ghanaian is left behind. My administration will ensure that our laws do not discriminate against anybody irrespective of the person’s social, religious or ethnic background,” the president stressed.
Eid al-Adha is an Islamic festival to commemorate the willingness of Ibrahim (also known as Abraham) to follow Allah’s command to sacrifice his son.
Muslims around the world observe this event annually.
