Ghana: Fulani Spiritual Leader Prays for JM

Yeji — THE SPIRITUAL leader of the Fulani Community in Ghana, Sheik Abubakari Sumohanala, has congratulated President John Dramani Mahama for assuming office as the Chief Executive officer of corporate Ghana.

Sheik Sumohanala asked the almighty Allah to give the President wisdom, knowledge, protection and guidance, as he accorded legendary King Solomon, as he (Mahama) assumes the highest executive position to determine the destiny of the people of Ghana.

He prayed to Allah to pour out his blessings on the president so that he would be filled with qualities that can help him to rule our dear nation.

In a statement read on his behalf by Alhaji Mohammed Ibrahim, the personal assistant at Yeji, in the Brong Ahafo Region, during a one day special prayers for the nation, the spiritual leader reminded President Mahama to surrender his ways and life to the will of Allah, in order to succeed.

"My piece of advice to the president is that, since you are Ghana's President, you belong to all Ghanaians and a father to all," he said, and urged him to use his good office to unite all Ghanaians as a nation with one people.

Sheik Abubakari expressed optimism that his tenure of office would ensure change in the current nature of politics and make Ghana a better home for all.

According to him, what president Mahama needs is the support of all to enable him push Ghana forward. "I will continue to pray for the leaders of this country for Allah's guardians and wisdom in order to ensure total peace in the country for future generations to enjoy", he said.

The Spiritual leader also appealed to the president to take a critical look at the Fulani herdsmen issue in the country, as innocent Fulani herdsmen continue to suffer in the hands of some Ghanaians.

"Thousands of cows are being killed and stolen. Any resistance by the herdsmen is met with false allegations, resulting in atrocities and injustice against them."

He noted that in some cases a section of Fulani community in some parts of the country were burnt, animals stolen and even some individuals killed, as if Ghanaians are at war with the Fulani tribe.

"We must try and expose the bad nuts and get rid of them to ensure that the majority innocent ones live in peace with their Ghanaian neighbors." he concluded.
