Alhaji Mubarak Fehe Niadere, the Chief Imam of Tumu in the Sissala East Municipality, has admonished Ghanaians not to allow the economic hardship in the country to lead them to indulge in acts that will disturb the peace of the country.
He said Ghanaians must rather intensify their prayers for Allah’s intervention to ensure that the situation improved for the benefit of all.
Alhaji Niadere also appealed to Ghanaians, especially those living along border communities to report suspicious persons to the security agencies to prevent terrorists from operating in the country.
He was speaking in Tumu, after he led the Orthodox Muslims in prayer during Eid Mubarak prayers as part of the Eid-Ul-Adha celebration in the area.
He stressed the need for all Ghanaians to remain hopeful as well as pray for Allah’s guidance since Ghana is a haven to live in.
The Alsunna Wal Jamat Muslim group as well as the Ahmadiyya also prayed in different parts of the municipality where they asked for peaceful coexistence.
Mr Yakubu Fuseini Batong, the Sissala East Municipal Chief Executive during the Eid prayers at the Tumu Sports Stadium, called for religious unity among Moslems and Christians.
“Let’s be united among ourselves as Muslims and our brothers in other denominations. We should see ourselves as one people with a common destiny and must protect each other”, he said.
The MCE prayed for the safe return of Muslims on pilgrimage to Mecca and similar intervention for the Member of Parliament who, he said had joined the people of Welembelle for the Eid Mubarak festival of sacrifice.
