Ms Francisca Oteng Mensah, Member of Parliament (MP) for Kwabre East, has praised Muslims in the area for coexisting peacefully with their neighbours.

She said peace and harmony that existed between Muslims and other religious faithful in the constituency was commendable and urged them to continue to live together as one people.

Speaking after the Eid Ul Fitr prayers of Muslims in the Kwabre East Municipality at Mamponteng, Ms Oteng Mensah said peace was the key to national development.

She said the government was on course to fix the country and appealed to the people to exercise restraint since the government was doing everything possible to solve the developmental challenges facing the nation.

Alhaji Ali Dauda Municipal Chief Imam appealed to Muslim youth to desist from defiant behaviours that did not conform to Islamic teachings.

He touched on issues such as reckless riding of motorbikes to celebrate Eid, violence, armed robbery, tattooing of bodies and dreadlocks, unnecessary and worldly jubilations among others and said such acts defies Islam.

“Your act tells where you belong to, dreadlocks, wee smoking, alcoholic drinking, prostitution, unnecessary tattooing, the reckless riding of motorbikes during Eid celebrations are not part of us.

You’re not part of us, don’t call yourself a Muslim if you take part in any of the aforementioned vices,” he emphasized.

Alhaji Dauda commended the Municipal Assembly and the MP for their continued support to Muslim communities in the area and urged them to continue to work to improve the living conditions of people in Zongo communities.

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.
