New voters' register dates coincides with Ramadan

Fellow Muslims, don’t let the politicians drag us into their machinations. We are told registration for the voter ID cards will be done at the polling stations under which not more than 1,000 people will be assigned to each polling station and 10 days allotted to each station to complete registration of its thousand potential voters. With this arrangement, we don’t think there will be a rash of registrants to put those fasting in any uncomfortable situation. In any case, Muslims go to work like any other workers during Ramadan and during the heydays of Real Tamale United, the bulk of the players were Muslim who fasted on match days. I have witnessed general elections taking place in an Arab and Muslim country during Ramadan and everything went on alright. It takes only one day to register and l believe this won’t pose any problem for we the Muslims. We should not buy into the propaganda of those parties who want to use us for their parochial interests.
