A group calling itself Citizens Governance Network (CGN) has expressed disagreement with the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, Reverend Professor Emmanuel Martey, who is alleged to have suggested that the government should stop the sponsoring the Hajj of Muslims.

The group said the Hajj was one of the five pillars of Islam and, therefore, “purely an Islamic Business”.
This was contained in a  press statement issued by the Executive Director of the CGN, Mr Osumanu Guarantee, in Accra on Wednesday.

The group said it was unfortunate that the Moderator would talk about an issue which clearly doesn’t concern him or have anything to do with his office or his domain.

It therefore called on him to retract his statement or face the necessary response from the group.

“We are calling upon the Presbyterian Church of Ghana to disassociate itself from such offensive comments and the Christian Council of Ghana to call him to order to withdraw the unfortunate comment within 48 hours,” it said.

“Though we know that every Muslim all over that country have shown their displeasure on this issue and are frustrated, we wish to plead with ... everyone to stay away from any activity that is likely to cause violence,” it added.

It further instructed any aggrieved Muslim body not to take the law into their own hands but rather channel its grievances  through the CGN.
