The National Chief Imam for Ghana, Sheik Osmanu Nunu Sharubutu has donated GHS 50.000 towards the construction of the National Cathedral.
The Chief Imam made the declaration when the chairman and members of the board of trustees of the National Cathedral called him to thank and congratulate him for him completing the National Mosque today, Thursday, August 26, 2021′
The spokesperson for the Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shuaibu in an interview at Citi News said it was his desire to further peace between Christians and Muslims
“As Ghanaians, we are all practitioners of a different faith, and we are able to sit around the same table and have an opportunity to discuss things and whatever comes by way of disagreement to really work and maintain our harmony, and we should not do anything to disturb our relationship. In fact, he said we should not use politics to disturb our relationship, and that we should keep politics aside and rather, as practitioners of different faiths, let’s all get united and see what we can do in the interest of our country.”
“He also said we should be mindful of that fact that God has given us peace at the time when nations around us have been plunged into conflict, and he said it is in the spirit of solidarity and mutual cooperation that he donated the GHS50,000 as a token contribution towards the construction of the National Cathedral.”
The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral, Apostle Opoku Onyinah, who was pleased with the contribution, called on Ghanaians to emulate the gesture.
‘We are extremely grateful to the Chief Imam for the contribution and also to those who haven’t understood the concept to exercise patience and follow the advice of the National Chief Imam that we should not begin to accuse one another and that religion should bring us together and should not divide us.’
