"O you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you may learn self-restraint'' QURAN 2:183.
As we journey through this holy month of fasting and prayers, I seize the opportunity, on behalf of Nananom and the people of the Region and on my own behalf, to congratulate the Muslim fraternity and pray for Allah's own strength and guidance during this trying period.
I reverend Ramadan as a period of endurance, self-denial and self-discipline and equally believe in the many blessings Allah showers on his children and the opened ear he offers to their prayers during this period.
On this faith, I solemnly entreat my Muslim brothers and sisters to remember Ghana, our President, our Leaders and the Region in their daily prayers as we struggle to find lasting solutions to our numerous SOCIO-ECONOMIC problems and our fight against this deadly pandemic, Covid-19.
As we renew our faith and commitment to Allah's will, I pray that this year's Ramadan pulls this nation closer to Allah than ever. May this solemn occasion bring us together, as a nation, under HIS canopy of love, peace, joy and blessing may the peace and joy of Allah be upon us all
