The Deputy Upper West Regional minister, Amidu Chinnia Issahaku has sent a good wish message to fellow Muslims as they celebrate Eid ul-Adha today.
“On this great festive occasion, on honouring the sacrifice and fortitude of our great grandfathers, the Prophets Ibrahim and Ishmael (May Allah Peace Be Upon Them), I wish all Muslim brothers and sisters especially those from the Upper West Region a happy Eid Mubarak. I pray on this day for the acceptance of our prayers and the acceptance of the prayers of our pilgrims who are yet to return from the blessed city of Mecca. I pray for their safe return to Ghana and also to the Upper West Region,” the deputy minister wrote.
“To my fellow Ghanaians and compatriots from the Upper West Region, enjoy this great day to the full but kindly do remember to celebrate with moderation. Whilst celebrating and enjoying remember to imbibe the spirit of sacrifice, tolerance and patience of the Prophets Ibrahim and Ishmael on yourselves so that together, we can use that positive spirit to make the Upper West Region great and stronger.’’
