Muslims in the Effutu Municipality on Friday held prayers at Kokobim in Winneba to mark the celebration of Eid-Ul-Adha, the feast of sacrifice.
Alhaji Mohammed Monsuri, Chief Imam of Effutu, led the worshipers to pray for the peace of the country before, during and after the December 7 elections.
They also prayed for God’s guidance for President John Dramani Mahama and his vice, political party leaders, and ministers of state.
Mr Mike Allan Hammah, Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, and also the Member of Parliament for Effutu, expressed the hope that the event would reflect on the lives of the entire people to contribute their quota towards the growth of the area.
He advised politicians that it is God who installs chiefs hence there was no need to fight or cause confusion in their quest for positions.
Mr Hammah said the government had put in place the necessary measures to ensure free, fair, transparent and peaceful elections.
He, therefore, assured Ghanaians not to panic but rather come out in their numbers to exercise their franchised.
He later presented two rams and cash of 300 Ghana cedis to the community as his contribution towards the celebration. GNA
