Chief Imam Is Epitome Of Tolerance In Ghana; His Colleagues Outside Must Learn From Him - Ablakwa

The member of parliament for North Tongu Constituency, honorable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has eulogized the national chief imam, Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu for being the epitome of religious tolerance in Ghana, inviting other African countries to learn from him.

In a statement on his Facebook page, Okudzeto Ablakwa reacted to the atrocious and gut-wrenching killing of Nigerian student, Deborah Samuel by her own school mates by saying it does not only demand loud universal condemnation, it calls for deep reflection on what future awaits Africa.

According to the lawmaker, Ghana's true religious leaders have taught and promoted religious tolerance and kindness towards other people of different faiths.

"Ghana’s Chief Imam, Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, who famously marked his centenary by attending a Catholic church service in 2019; and who actively prevented conflict after his youthful devotees who were upset with a particular prophet notorious for his death wishes targeted his church when he this time put out a so-called prophecy predicting the Chief Imam’s death — a revelation which failed to materialize, raising doubts about its genuineness" part of his statement read.

He said Sheikh Sharubutu’s legendary tolerant and unifying disposition continues to make him an internationally acclaimed symbol of religious tolerance his colleagues on the continent must learn from him.

He further said that true religion must be a source of kindness.
