Vice-President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur
The Vice-President of Ghana, Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, has reiterated government’s commitment to ensure an incident free Hajj this year.
Speaking at the Islamic Holy Night of Kadr organized by the Muslim Caucus in Accra last night, Mr.
Amissah-Arthur expressed his appreciation and that of the NDC government to the Muslim community for their prayers for the country.
He said: “The last 10 days of Ramadan is spent by Muslims in serious prayers both in the day and at night.
This practice hinges on the Muslim belief that there’s a particular night Laylatul Qadr also known as the “night of power” where if one is fortunate to have a prayer answered, will receive many blessings of a thousand months of prayer.”
Amissah-Arthur added, “choosing that night to pray for the nation as it displayed their love for the nation.”
He pledged that this year’s Hajj will see even more pro-activeness and swiftness in organization.
“Let me assure all Ghanaian Muslims that just as the government strife to ensure peaceful and dignified Hajj for Ghanaian pilgrims in the last three years, so shall we do our best to ensure that this year’s Hajj will be incident free,” he promised.
