The President, Nana Akufo-Addo has reiterated his commitment to ensure that the bottlenecks hampering the economy are completely removed to make life bearable for the citizenry.
President Akufo-Addo addressing Muslims at the 2018 Eid al-Adha celebration at the Black Star Square in Accra on Tuesday, said his government would pursue goals and policies that would ensure economic transformation for all Ghanaians.
“I am ready to sacrifice for this country and I have told all my appointees to cultivate the same sacrifice like our forbearers.
“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.
While urging Muslims to use the occasion to extend arms to the poor and the needy in society, the president assured that the newly created Zongo Ministry would take measures to address the plights of all Zongo communities in the country.
Akufo-Addo said as Prophet Mohammed espoused in the Quran, Muslims must use the festive season to extend love to all manner of persons for peaceful coexistence.
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.
