Al Hajj Muhammad A Kpakpo Addo

The umbrella body of Muslim organisations in Ghana, the Federation of Muslim Councils (FMC) has declared Friday, December 4, as special day of Muslim prayers to Allah for enhanced peace ahead of, during and after the December 7 General Election.

Imams across the country, the Council advised should, therefore, devote their Friday Prayer Khutbahs (sermons) to peace and the repugnance of violence in the elections.

A statement signed by Al-Hajj Muhammad A. Kpakpo Addo, Secretary-General, and copied to the Ghana News Agency, in Accra, said the relatively peaceful conduct of the Special Voting Exercise held across the country on Tuesday, December 1, for personnel from the various security agencies, journalists and officials of the Electoral Commission was commendable.

The Council, therefore, urged all Muslims, especially the youth, to continue to comport themselves and not to engage “in any form violence now, during and even after the elections”.

The Ghana news Agency (GNA) was established on March 5, 1957, i.e. on the eve of Ghana's independence and charged with the "dissemination of truthful unbiased news". It was the first news agency to be established in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation-state. GNA has therefore been operating in the unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
