The Chief Imam of Awutu Senya East Municipality, Alhaji Osmanu Awudu on behalf of the entire Muslims community in Kasoa has denounced the selfish and unwarranted agenda being pursued by the militant group in Nigeria ?Boko Haram?.
He explained that, what they are doing is not Islam and for that matter their credibility and true identity as Muslims is in doubt. He has therefore called on all Muslims in the world to speak against such worrisome murder of innocent people.
Alhaji Awudu said this at the 6th?Eid-Fitr durbar of Chiefs at Kasoa last weekend, adding that, ?surely ALLAH will deal with them at His appointed time.?
The durbar of Chiefs is part of activities for the celebration of the EID-FITR celebration of the people of Kasoa which included all ethnic groups in Kasoa and the non-muslim, which tells the uniqueness and diversity associated with the celebrations and draws the attention of the whole country to witness the display of culture from all parts of the country.
The Odikro of Kasoa, Nai Seidu Yusif Abdullah in his keynote address read by Baba Kamara Amadu, Spokesperson of Odikro of Kasoa??at the 6th annual Kasoa Sallahfest explained that, the theme for the celebration;?Unity in Diversity: the Panacea for National Development??was selected due to the cosmopolitan nature of the Awutu Senya East Municipality which requires that all inhabitants live in unity so that they can forge ahead for development for Kasoa and the nation at large.
He therefore called on all traditional areas and authorities to emulate their innovation by accepting to enstool and enskin other well organized ethnic groups within the traditional areas.
He noted, this in effect will bring all of us together as Ghanaians whiles contributing to strengthening the relative peace and security enjoyed in the country and also adding their little mark as traditional authorities to national development.
The Odikro for his love for peace added his voice for the call for ceasefire in Gaza from the Isreali forces and said innocent children and women are being killed and rendered orphans and widows.
The Odikro and his elders? also pleaded to the labor front to be patience and to exercise restraint on the government as it accept to solve the current economic challenges faced the country.
?We all bear with the fact that, the country is in difficult times and in difficult times it is only consensus building and looking for solutions that will take us of the difficulties.? He said.
?Ghana is for all of us and we must show our sense of patriotism to the people we are working for and the politician (s) or government you do not like or better still wishes to frustrate. It is a fact that, too much of strike actions and labor unrests decreases national productivity which in eventuality affects growth and development.?
However, referring to an adage in Akan which says, ?whiles advising the cat, you also advices the mouse?, He also advised to the government to make sure that, the national resource are not used for their personal interest and lavishing themselves. ?The national resource must be seen used for infrastructure development and social life enhancement of the citizenry.? He emphasized.
