The immediate past Greater Accra Nasara Coordinator, Alhaji Aminu Abu has offered free advice to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nasara Wing and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Zongo Caucus to come out with a joint press statement to express their dissatisfaction over the endorsement by the Christian Council of Ghana and Ghana Catholic Bishop’s Conference on the Wesley Girls’ High School deviance.
Alhaji Aminu Abu gave the advice on Hajj Media Voice a popular WhatsApp platform that addresses challenges and the way forward for Muslim Communities in Ghana and the World.
He said the time has come for the two political parties to come together and fight in the interest of Muslims.
According to him, the two political parties claim that they have the welfare of Muslims at heart yet did little on the raging brouhaha.
He said the NPP over the years claimed to have provided Muslims with a Vice President whiles the NDC also claims to have also given Muslims a public holiday.
He stated that it is the responsibility of the NPP Nasara wing and the NDC Zongo Caucus to prove to Muslims in matters of this nature to the entire world.
He stressed the need for Abdul Aziz Futa to organise all regional executives of the Nasara Wing as well as the NDC Zongo Caucus to do same and organise a joint meeting.
According to him, a joint press statement issued by the Christian Council of Ghana and the Ghana Bishop’s Conference is a clear disrespect to the National Chief Imam of Ghana, despite the love, respect and good relationship the Chief Imam has shown to the Christian Community and its leadership.
Alhaji Aminu Abu further calls on the leadership of the major political parties to take a cue from other African countries like Nigeria, Niger, Mali and among others where there is unending conflicts between Muslims and Christians not as a result of politics but a misunderstanding between Muslims and Christians.
“We don’t want Ghana to also go through such phase. Upon all the love, care and the unconditional support the National Chief Imam gives to the Christians yet they always find a way to criticize or create problems between Islam and Christianity as a whole,” he noted.
He urges all Muslim leaders regardless of the political party to come out and make their position known to the world and preach peace and nothing else.
This he called on the two political party’s representatives to address the issue with the necessary attention it deserves before things get out of control.
“Peace is all we need as a country,” the immediate past Greater Accra regional Nasara coordinator emphasised.
