Ghana: Sharubutu Praises Muslims for Peaceful Polls

Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, the National Chief Imam has expressed gratitude and appreciation to the entire Muslim community and the nation for ensuring violence-free elections.

The Chief Imam said the exercise had proved to the international community that the country was indeed a pacesetter and a beacon of democracy in Africa.

This was contained in a press release signed by Alhaji Khuzaima Mohammed Osman, personal assistant to the Chief Imam and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra.

The release said the Islamic Peace and Security Council of Ghana under the flagship of the Chief Imam and sponsorship from DANIDA embarked on a pilot project dubbed ' Ensuring Violence-Free 2012 Elections in Zongo Communities' to ensure peaceful elections.

The Chief Imam thanked the local, district and regional Chief Imams and Islamic educators for their tireless efforts and said their main objective had been achieved since there had not been any reported incidence of violence during the elections within the Zongo communities.

The National Chief Imam said he would continue to pray for peace, tranquility and development to prevail in the aftermath of the elections.
