As Muslims in Ghana and across the globe celebrate Eid-Ul-Adha today, the NPP is pleased to wish them the very best of this momentous and joyous occasion, which marks an important milestone on the Islamic calendar. Eid-Ul-Adha, otherwise known as ‘feast of sacrifice’, as we all know, is the Muslim festival that marks the culmination of the annual pilgrimage to the holy land of Mecca and the famous sacrifice of Prophet Abraham.
Today is therefore not just a day for merrymaking and celebration as we often see, but more importantly, it is a day for Muslims to reflect on their sacrifices, first of all, to their Maker, and then to fellow humans and to society at large. The NPP, on this special occasion, is thus, calling on them to manifest these virtues which underpin the commemoration of Eid-Ul-Adha and renew their covenant with Almighty Allah.
Again, as much as we acknowledge the fact that there is every reason for Muslims to celebrate this day even with pomp and pageantry, the party also admonishes them especially the youth to be weary of excessive celebration which may occasion some unpleasant spectacles. It ought not be said that someone got injured or passed on at the end of the day and so, we are appealing for moderation and circumspection in the celebration.
Once again, the party wishes Muslims a happy Eid-Ul-Adha celebration and also calls on them to use this solemn occasion to pray for the nation and in particular, our hardworking President, His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo and the government.
