The Deputy Chief Imam of Kukuom Central Mosque in Asunafo South of the Ashanti Region, Dr. Mohammed Isiah, has called on Ghanaians to debunk claims and suggestions that Muslims and Northerners may not vote for Hon Alan Kyerematen if he is being elected as the presidential candidate for NPP in the 2024 elections.
According to him in a self-recorded video after their Eid-ul-Fitr prayers, he opined that Alan Kyerematen is the most wanted among Muslims and Northerners and so the New Patriotic Party (NPP) members should rather unite behind him and push the party to victory in the next election.
He however advised that, after the constituency delegates’ election, all party members, both winners and losers should unite as one, break the eight year cycle and work for the betterment of the party rather than the interest of individuals.
“As Northerners and Muslims mark this august occasion, we wish everybody Eid Mubarak and my message to all New Patriotic Party (NPP) members, including delegates and constituency executives, is that both winners and losers should work together to break the eight year cycle”, he said.
“It’s God (Allah) who installs kings and kingdom, therefore nobody can just get up and install himself or herself as a king or queen. As in the Ashanti Kingdom, people take turns ascending to the throne, so it is with the New Patriotic Party; it is now Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen’s turn as he has delicately done his part for the part through hard work and sacrifice. I urge all Northerners and Muslims to vote for him”, he quoted the Quran.
