The Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, yesterday called on the President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, at his Nima residence, in Accra, to congratulate him on his victory in Wednesday’s election.
Sheikh Aremeyaw who read the Chief Imam’s message on his behalf, urged Nana Addo to speak and call his supporters to order.
“Your Excellency, the current president has expressed concern about some things ongoing across the country, and in the interest of our country, we also want to add a voice that if such things are going on, then we want you to speak so that such things are stopped.”
The Chief Imam also assured the President-elect of his utmost support and prayers throughout his presidency.
There have been reports of attacks on members of the ruling NDC across the country, following the party’s defeat in the just-ended presidential and parliamentary elections.
The police have subsequently called on the jubilant members of the NPP to stop the attacks, while President John Mahama has ordered the security agencies to arrest the rampaging supporters.
A member of the NDC was allegedly murdered by a supporter of the NPP at Sefwi-Wiawso in the Western Region.
Kwame Owusu was reportedly attacked by his assailant, Dr. Bonney, during a heated exchange after the declaration of the results by the Electoral Commission on Friday.
The Sefwi-Wiawso Police Commander, Supt. Abrokwa confirmed the incident and said investigations had begun into the matter.
