Eid Ul-Adha Celebrations Overshadowed By Economic Hardship - Alhaj Sinare Fumes

As Muslims across the country mark the auspicious occasion of EID UL-ADHA, the former National Vice Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Alhaji Said Sinare has lamented the egregious mismanagement of Ghana's economy under the leadership of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.

In a statement released on the eve of Eid Ul-Adha on his official Twitter and Facebook pages, Alhaji Sinare extended his warmest felicitations to his Muslim brothers and sisters nationwide on behalf of the Flagbearer of his National Democratic Congress, wishing them a joyous and blessed celebration. However, he sternly expressed dismay over the economic hardship faced by many Muslims, particularly the exorbitant Hajj fares that have strained the financial burden on pilgrims.

The newly appointed National Chairman of the NDC's Zongo working committee attributed the economic woes to the mismanagement of national resources under Dr Bawumia's economic management team, citing the need for a new leadership that prioritizes inclusivity, equity, and sustainable progress. He praised the transformative developments achieved by former President John Dramani Mahama in Zongo communities and charged Zongos Across the country to endorse him for a resurgent Ghana.

The former Saudi Arabia and Egypt High Commissioner's comments come as many Ghanaians struggle to make ends meet amidst harsh economic conditions, with many blaming the government's economic policies for the hardship. As Muslims celebrate Eid ul-Adha, Alhaji Sinare's message resonates with those seeking a better future for Ghana in the upcoming election.

Alhaji Said Sinare criticized the current vice president, who is a Muslim, and the government for bringing about a period of economic decline, poverty, insecurity, job losses, disunity, and injustice. He also expressed concern over the deliberate rise in Hajj fares for Muslims, which has made it difficult for many Ghanaian Muslims, especially first-timers, to participate in the religious exercise.

The New Patriotic Party's (NPP) decision to field the current Vice President, a Muslim, as their presidential candidate for the 2024 election is regrettable, given his complicity in the prevailing climate of unmitigated suffering, economic stagnation, rampant poverty, heightened insecurity, staggering job losses, and injustice, Zero Works at the Zongos, unpleasant Hajj fare for already burdened Muslims that has characterized his tenure in office will be the point of contact for the 2024 Elections, he said while speaking to the media.



As we commemorate this auspicious occasion of EID UL-ADHA, I extend my warmest felicitations to all my Muslim brothers and Sisters across the country! May this sacred day be filled with joy, blessings, and unwavering hope for a prosperous future.

It is indeed lamentable that the egregious mismanagement of our national resources under the stewardship of Dr. Bawumia's economic management team has eclipsed our celebrations, exemplified by the exorbitant Hajj fares that have strained the financial burden on our pilgrims. Nevertheless, let us reflect on the transformative developments and milestones achieved by H.E John Dramani Mahama in our Zongo communities, and unanimously endorse his visionary leadership for a resurgent Ghana, predicated on the principles of inclusivity, equity, and sustainable progress. #EidulAdha #NDCcares #JohnandJane2024
