Shiekh Yussif Amdani Suleiman
The Eastern Regional Chief Imam, Shiekh Yussif Amdani Suleiman, has called on Zongo youth across the country, to desist from electoral violence in the upcoming 2020 elections.
In a media interaction with CTV News’ Eastern regional correspondent Kamal Ahmed in Koforidua, the Chief Imam asked the Muslim youth to ignore offers from politicians who intend to incite violence in society.
He said if any politician comes to them with the intention of violence, they should ask that person to go for his own children and relatives.
“Don’t allow yourself to be lured with peanuts by politicians,” Sheikh Suleiman said.
The Imam entreated the Minister of Innercity and Zongo Development, Dr Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, to try his possible best to develop the Zongos through job creation and infrastructure.
He said the inhabitants of Zongo areas in Ghana deserve better, adding that “since we are now having such opportunities in governance through the Zongo Ministry, he should make the Zongos great.”
