Ghana Will Not Fight During December Elections – Alhaji Chocho

The Eastern Regional President of the Ahamadiya Muslims Mission of Ghana, Alhaji Mustapha Boateng has express optimism that that Ghanaians will not fight over choosing who to lead the nation during December 2016 elections.


Alhaji Mustapha Boateng popularly known as Alhaji Chocho, in expressing that optimism said, “we should ensure that those we are going to give the jobs to or vote for can do the job and this does not call for a fight”.

The Chief Executive Officer of Chocho Industries expressed this in an interview in the United Kingdom with UK based Ghanaian Journalist, Kwaku Owusu Frimpong, during the 50th

Anniversary of Jalsla Salana.

Jalsla Salana is an Annual National Convention of the Ahamadiya Muslims Mission in the World where Ahamadiya Muslims from all walks of life converge.

Alhaji Boateng explained that “Ghanaians are understandable and they will not fight over choosing who to lead them. We are going to look for a job for someone and that does not mean we should fight but we should look and vote for someone who can do the job”.

He added that “it will not make sense to fight for those we [voters] are looking for the job so I am sure there would be no skirmishes in the elections”.

Leaders must serve

The prominent industrialist counseled leaders in the country to serve the people instead of seeking power and hoping to be served.

“The elderly, leaders and dignitaries must serve the people. The important people in the society must serve the people and that shows respect. There should be truthfulness in the country”, Alhaji Mustapha Boateng added.

Advice to the youth

Alhaji Chocho said the youth should be calm and patience in life because life is not about rushing to achieve earthly things in life.

“They should look at their childhood periods. They should look at since they were children and they will agree with me that, whatever has happen to them is not their might and wisdom but a power behind. That is the power behind life and what will make that power profitable is for them to be patients and have hope in God”.

He explained that experience has shown that “when you rush in life, you can fall into a trap so the youth should be patience because patience has the support from God”.

This year’s event, which took place at Oak Farm Hampshire in UK, brought together thousands of Muslims across the world. Significantly, among the invited renowned speakers was Ghana’s Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu.

The Ahamadiya Muslims Mission provides various forms of projects for humanity across the globe. One significant aspect of the sect is Humanity First that undertakes several humanity-oriented programs such as “the Gift of sight, provision of water for sub-Saharan Africa provision of accommodation for the destitute”, among others.
