Ghana must stay united – Nasara Club
They should be mindful of their responsibility to themselves and posterity to keep the nation united and stable.
Alhaji Ali Musah Zingi, Ashanti Regional Coordinator of the NPP Nasara Club, said it is important for all to accept to put the country ahead of parochial political interests and convenience.
He was speaking at a day’s prayer and recitation of the Holy Koran event in Kumasi to ask for Allah’s continued blessing and the gift of peace and harmony in the society.
This comes amidst growing anxiety about possible confusion after the Court gives its verdict.
The gathering led by Islamic scholars said special prayers for the Justices hearing the petition so that they would have the courage to deliver justice.
Alhaji Zingi appealed to Muslims to use the holy month of Ramadan to seek Allah’s protection of the nation from upheaval, adding that, it should not be lost on anybody.
“Ghana is not …different from the other countries, which slipped into civil wars due to electoral disputes”.
He praised the NPP and its leadership for doing what was honourable by not massing up on the streets to protest perceived irregularities and flaws of the elections but resorted to go to court.
This, he said, was a clear display of political maturity, strong belief in democracy and the rule of law.
Alhaji Umar Farouk, Regional Head of the Zongo Community, cautioned Muslim youth to avoid the manipulations of disgruntled politicians to cause trouble after the court’s ruling.
They should uphold the sanctity of the Ramadan and be guided by its principles to live within the law.
