A member of the Eastern Regional Communication team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Sualihu Mohammed Sualihu, has described the National Democratic Congress (NDC) manifesto promise of creating mortuaries for Muslims across the country as senseless.
He said this when he interacted with a cross-section of Muslims at Ayekotse Zongo in the Suhum constituency of the Eastern Region.
The communicator said ” it’s only a political party bereft of ideas that would consider building mutuaries for Muslims. We Muslims are enjoined by our religion to bury our dead within 24 hours of the death so building mortuaries for Muslims is an affront to the Islamic Religion.”
He further stated that, while the NPP government is busily transforming the Zongo’s through Education, construction of roads, water and sanitation projects, recreational facilities, financial assistance to small scale Zongo businesses, the NDC on the other hand can only think of providing mortuaries for muslims in our Zongos
Sualihu admonished Muslims and Ghanaians to be mindful of the tricks the NDC and their incompetent leader are trying to play on Muslims and reject them accordingly.
“The NPP government through the Zongo Development ministry has a lot of projects across the country. The Construction of astroturf in and around Zongos to harness the sporting potentials of Zongo youth. Construction of mechanized bore-holes in Zongos to give Muslims wholesome water, for example, Suhum Ayekotse Zongo Scholarship for 100 Zongo youth to study medicine in Cuba.” he stated.
He added that the Nana Akufo-Addo led NPP administration has also provided financial support to small businesses in Zongos with people here being beneficiaries and employment of Arabic / Islamic tutors across the country to help in teaching Islamic/ Arabic subjects.
In conclusion, Sualihu popularly known as SMS advised them to take advantage of the COVID- 19 business support fund ( Stimus packages)to boost their businesses.
He finally appealed to the electorate to give H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo and the NPP Parliamentary candidate, Hon. Boafo Kwadwo Asante a resounding victory in the December election.
