President Nana Akufo-Addo has asked a delegation of Muslims who paid him a visit at the Presidency to pray for him and his entire government to be honest and true to their cause of developing the nation.
This request was made after the head of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, Maulvi Mohammed Bin Salih, led a delegation of the National Executive Council of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission to the presidency to thank President Akufo-Addo for gracing the 85th anniversary celebration of the Mission, on January 12, 2017.
Maulvi stated that Ghanaians have finally elected a leader the country has longed for, for years.
According to the Muslim leader, the determination and resilience exhibited by President Akufo-Addo, resulting in his victory at the 3rd time of asking, coupled with the overwhelming margin of victory secured in the elections, point to the level of confidence Ghanaians have reposed in him as the leader who will bring progress and prosperity to the nation.

The result of the December 7 election, Maulvi Bin Salih noted, “proved that Ghana is mature and is ready to take back its place in the comity of nations.”
He was confident that Ghana, under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo, would thrive: “I am not prophesying, I don’t prophesy. I am only talking out of my convictions.”
President Akufo-Addo was grateful for the words of commendation from Maulvi Bin Salih, and applauded the contribution of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission towards the development of country in the fields of education, healthcare and the provision of social services.
President Akufo-Addo appealed to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission to “pray for me and for those who work with me, so we are inspired by the Almighty to do a good job for Ghana. Pray to God to give me wisdom, courage and make me a compassionate leader.
“I want to be an honest leader, a good leader and one who will be remembered as having contributed significantly to the progress and welfare of Ghana.”
