I extend best wishes to all Guyanese, but especially our Islamic community, on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha. This sacred day recalls the unshakeable faith and unwavering obedience of the Prophet Ibrahim.
Eid-ul-Adha is observed throughout our country with the offering of prayers and the distribution of food and alms to the less fortune in our society. The expressions of kindness, to the poor and needy, strengthen the chords of cohesion within our society. It demonstrates our concern for others and for the building of a more equitable society where everyone will be treated with dignity.
Guyana is today moving in the right direction. We are becoming a more caring, considerate and compassionate nation. We are working towards an inclusive future where no one will feel excluded and where everyone, regardless of class, race or religion, will be respected.
May the outpouring of kindness and concern for others, which is characteristic of Eid-ul-Adha, promote greater harmony in our beloved country! I wish all Guyanese a peaceful and joyous Eid-ul-Adha.
Eid Mubarak to all!
