In a message posted on his Facebook page this morning, Dr. Bawumia urged Muslims to use the holy month of Ramadan to pray for the prosperity of Ghana and their loved ones.

"On the occasion of the commencement of Ramadan, I extend my warm wishes to Muslims in Ghana and around the world, as we observe the month-long fast," Dr. Bawumia wrote.

"Let us use this period of devotion and purity to pray for the continuous peace and prosperity of our country, and the well being of loved ones."

The Vice President also urged all Muslims to use the month of Ramadan to reinforce the importance of peaceful coexistence between Muslims and people of other faith.
