National Chief Imam denies story
The Office of the National Chief Imam has denied being part of those who went to parliament to protest the so-called US-Ghana alliance as being spread on social media and online news portals.
The National Chief Imam of the Muslim community in Ghana, Alhaji Sheikh Nuhu Sharubutu stormed parliament Friday.
His presence was announced by the Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu.
He was there to inaugurate the Mosque of Parliament and to lead Friday's prayers.
A statement from the Office of the National Chief Imam and signed by Sheikh Armeyau Shuaib, pointed out that the cleric “was not in parliament to protest but was rather invited by the Speaker of Parliament to commission and observe Jummah prayers in the newly-built mosque at Parliament. We urge the general public to disregard the fake news.”
