Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia has asked Muslim communities in the Oti Region to use the Ramadan fasting month to pray for him and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government to succeed in bringing total development into the country.
Dr. Bawumia said Ghana needed divine intervention to achieve the needed development and the only way was for its citizens to go to God through prayers.
He was speaking when he joined hundreds of Muslims in the Oti Regional capital, Dambai on Friday for prayers as part of his nationwide Ramadan tour.
The Vice President also joined and prayed with Muslim faithful at Kwamekrom in Biakoye and Kadjebi in Akan District asking for the blessings of God throughout the Ramadan season.
Minister for Zongo and Inner City Development, Ahmed Mustafa assured that government was putting measures in place to see the development of zongo communities in the country.
Assemblyman for Kwamekrom, Amidu Ibrahim appealed to the Vice President and the Minister for Zongo and Inner City Development to consider renovating the Kwamekrom Central Mosque and introducing English and Arabic to attract more students.
Some residents who spoke to Voltaonlinegh appreciated the visit of Dr. Bawumia and prayed that their requests should be granted.
