From Samuel Mensah Torbizo-Kumasi
The first National Vice chairman of the United Progressive Party (UPP) Alhaji Bashiru Zakaria, has appealed to Muslims to pray for peace for
Ghana as the country prepares to go to the polls in November.
He stressed the importance of peace in the country before, during and after the elections and called on all Muslims currently observing Ramadan, to use the occasion, especially the last ten days to pray fervently for peace and stability for the country.
Alhaji Zakaria, a Veteran Journalist, speaking to The Herald, cautioned leadership of political parties to admonish their members against acts of violence and insults, which could spark conflicts.
He noted that, without peace no political party, would have the moral right to govern, even if it wins the election and urged them to be as
tolerant as possible.
The UPP Vice chair, also expressed his condolences to President John Mahama, on the demise of his mother recently.
He noted that passing away of Hajia Abiba Nnaba in the Holy Month of Ramadan was a blessing and wished the President himself well and asked him to stay strong, as he embarks on another tedious task of campaigning to win the confidence of the electorate for the mandate for a second term in office.
