The Municipal Chief Executive of Ayawaso North, Aliu Mz, has advised the youth to imbibe the spirit of peace, unity and togetherness as the country marks the 62nd Independence celebration. This, he said, would help them progress in life.
Speaking at the Jummah prayers to mark the celebration, he noted that government has created a scholarship scheme that will help needy but brilliant students to pursue tertiary education.
Jummah is a congregational prayer that Muslims hold every Friday, just after noon instead of the Zuhr prayer. Muslims pray ordinarily five times each day according to the sun’s sky path regardless of time zones as mentioned in the Quran.
The occasion is used to pray for the nation, it’s leaders and personal development of the individual.
The prayer session was part of the key activities to mark the 62nd anniversary of the country’s independence.
The MCE of Ayawaso North, Aliu Mz was speaking when he joined worship at the Maamobi Central Mosque, where he was massively mopped by the Muslim faithful.
He affirmed that the assembly will enforce laws to deal with the issue of sanitation in the Muslim communities, and urged individuals to be law abiding by desisting from littering the environment.
A prayer was said for the country and it’s leaders.
He called on Ghanaian’s not to sacrifice the peace of the country to satisfy their parochial interest.
