The Chief Imam of Tema, Alhaji Abuba-kar Adams, has asked political and religious leaders to fulfil their pledges, and execute plans that would improve the welfare of their followers.
He urged the leaders to be committed to the duties, educate and support the youth to contribute to national development
Alhaji Abubakar Adams who made the call at a meeting organised by the Greater Accra Regional branch of the Ghana United Nations Association (GU-NA), a non-governmental organisation (NGO), in Tema, lamented that “apathy towards duty, self-centeredness and greed by some leaders hampered the peace and development of the nation.”
He said the country would not achieve much progress if leaders and the people fail to work together for the implementation of programmes.
Alhaji Adams appealed to government to create employment avenues for the youth to prevent them from engaging in acts that made them undesirable elements of society.
The president of GUNA, Madam Cherrie Hammond, advised its members to work hard to enable the group to achieve its aims and objectives, adding that the association was repositioning itself to make its presence be felt.
The President of the Tema Chapter of GUNA, Mr. Charles Nkrumah, appealed to non-governmental organisations, clubs, institutions and traditional authorities to ensure peace and national development, which he said was essential for democracy.
Mr Nkrumah cautioned the youth to resist inducements from politicians to carry out illegal activities for their parochial interest as the 2016 elections approached.
