The Presiding Member for Akuapem North Municipal Assembly in the Eastern Region, Nana AsieduOffei hasstated that the option of peaceful coexistence of Muslims and Christians in the region particularly in the Akuapem North should not be taken lightly.

‘’Let us continue to live in harmony and unite for a common goal, because we are all preaching peace and the sal­vation of the lost souls for God” he said.

According to Nana Offei this would fast-track the devel­opment of the commu­nities and to improve the living standards of the people.

Nana AsieduOffei said this at Akropong on Thursday af­ter present­ing 26 bags of rice and five boxes of cooking oil to Muslims in five towns in the munic­ipality to observe this year’s

Eid al-Fitr. The towns are Akropong, Larteh, Mampong, Korkoom, and Man­goase.

Nana AsieduOffei who for the past nine years donated cattle, rice and edible oil to Muslim communities in the area said Christians and Muslim follow­ers are the world’s most two powerful religions which preach peace so they should see themselves as members of one big family in the region, especially in the Akuapem North.

Religion, he said should not be a dividing factor but rather unite the peo­ple to pursue a common agenda for the rapid development of the communities.

The Muslim Chief of Akropong, Alhaji Abdel Muniru received the items on be­half of his colleagues and thanked Nana Offei for the gesture.

He stated that he has Muslims at heart, especially during Eid al-Fitr and Eid al-Adha celebrations and therefore prayed for him, the family and the nation as a whole for Allah”s continuous blessing.
