On Friday, 17 May 2019, His Excellency Alhaj Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice President of the Republic of Ghana visited the Mangoase Zonal Headquarters of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, Ghana.
Dr Bawumia had iftari with members of the community in Mangoase Jamaat and also prayed Maghrib and Isha with them. He was accompanied by ministers of state as well as leading members of the ruling party.
The vice president and his team were received at the forecourt of the mosque where hundreds of Ahmadi Muslims from Gomoa Mangoase Township and its immediate surroundings had gathered and had iftari with him.
He was welcomed on behalf of the Jamaat by Alhaj Abass Bin Wilson, General Secretary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission Ghana, who expressed gratitude to the vice president for visiting a local branch of the community.
Addressing the gathering after the Maghrib and Isha Salat, the vice president said that his visit was to take advantage of the blessed month of Ramadan to fraternise with Muslim brethren across the country and solicit for their prayers.
“Being a Muslim”, he said, “I am aware that the month of Ramadan is the holiest and most blessed month of the year, which is why I found it necessary to visit fellow Muslims and request for their prayers for Allah’s blessings and guidance.”
He entreated all and sundry to pray for the government and the people of Ghana, as well as for the peace and progress of the country.
