Some residents in Nima, in the Ayawaso East constituency of the Greater Accra Region, on Tuesday poured out onto the streets to welcome the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo when he extended his campaign to the area.
Interacting with Muslim clerics at the Alesuna Mosque, Nana Akufo-Addo noted that when the time is due for elections, there are some who, for political gain, will infiltrate Zongo communities and seek to foist division, on religious lines.
“They will say Akufo-Addo hates Muslims, does not like people residing in Zongo communities, so as to put fear in you. There is not an iota of truth in any of this.
Of all the presidential candidates contesting this year’s elections, I am the only one who has selected a Muslim to be my running mate,” Nana Akufo-Addo said.
The Muslim I chose is not just a Muslim, but a very brilliant Muslim, who can help develop the nation with his indepth knowledge.”
