I wish to on behalf of the Ekumfi constituency executives of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) express our joy in joining our Muslim brothers and sisters within the Ekumfi constituency in celebrating their annual Eid.
The Eid ul-Adha is celebrated to remember the sacrifices Hazrat Ibrahim made to Allah when Allah instructed him – Ibrahim to sacrifice his only male child: Ismail for him Allah.
Ibrahim saw the importance and blessings he will receive from offering his son as a sacrifice to Allah.
As we celebrate to remember this sacrifice Ibrahim made to Allah, let us also as Muslim brothers and sisters sacrifice our wealth with those who are vulnerable in our communities.
The holy Quran admonishes us as Muslims to give alms to the poor, the needy, and the weary.
Let us use this occasion to reflect on what Allah has done for us through this government of H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and his Vice Dr. Alhaji Mahammudu Bawumiah as Muslims in our Zongos.
For the first time in the history of Ghana, a minister of state has been appointed to be in charge of our Zngos to see to it that our Zongos also develop.
On 7th December 2020, ghana will head to the polls to elect a president and parliamentarians, as a Member of Parliament for Ekumfi, I want to urge you to maintain me as your MP and President Akufo-Addo for us to continue the good social intervention policies the government is implementing.
Ekumfi has been noted for peace and let's continue to live in peace and harmony.
Once again Happy Eid-ul-Adha
Long live Ekumfiman
Long live our Muslim brothers and sisters in Ekumfi
Honourable Francis Kingsley Ato Codjoe
(MP And Deputy Minister For Fisheries And Aquaculture)
