THE National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, has called on politicians to put the interest of Ghanaians and Ghana first in all their endeavours.

He also urged them to desist from making unguarded statements which had the tendency to destabilise the country.

Sheikh Sharubutu made the call when the National Executives of the Zongo Caucus of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) paid a courtesy call on him.

They were on a tour visiting Islamic leaders in the country to seek Allah’s protection and guidance for the upcoming general elections.

The visit also provided the opportunity for the caucus to formally introduce the executive body to the Chief Imam as they embarked on a door to door campaign to seek votes for the NDC.

The Chief Imam cautioned the group to desist from unhealthy arguments during their tour as it was an easy way to start chaos.

“Always engage in healthy arguments as it helps to broaden ones knowledge in life but try as much as possible not to engage in arguments that would lead to violence as Allah frowns on violence,” he said.

Additionally, he urged Muslims in the various Zongo communities to always be guided by the principles of Islam and continue to seek Allah’s guidance and protection at all times.

He further urged Ghanaians to continue to live in peace with one another as it was healthy for socio-economic and national development.

The leader of the delegation, Alhaji Baba Sharif, said the NDC government, in its quest to prioritise education for the Muslim community, was currently paying Arabic teachers who teach in most of the Arabic schools in the country.

He also stressed government’s commitment to ensure an incident free hajj this year, adding that this year’s hajj was part of the government’s better Ghana agenda.

He urged all Ghanaians to vote massively for the NDC come December for more developments and wealth creation in the country.

The Chief Imam of Alhusunna Waljamah, Sheik Umar Ibrahim, called for enhanced education in the Zongo communities by improving on educational infrastructure and the quality of education.
