The Sultan, Imam Alhaji Nuhu Mohammmed wishes you a very happy Eid. We Pray Allah make it a memorable day for you and your family during the holy days. We ask Allah to bestow His forgiveness upon us and our fortunate family and friends who have made the blessed pilgrimage to Hajj. ~’sultan NuhuMohammed’~ The Messsage
Sultan Nuhu Mohammed and friends sends its message of solidarity to Ghanaian Muslims in particular and all Ghanaians in general. We congratulate all living souls in this great country who witness this memorable spiritual season.
We remind both the leaders and the citizenry of the essence of this Eid-ul-Adha as stated in Qur’an . We charge the Government to be God conscious and God-fearing. The present furore over wages between Government and labour precisely teachers,doctors and also studnt bodies is bourne out of an acute lack of Allah-consciousness in government circles. Those who fear Allah will honour their covenants. Those who are Allah-conscious will realize that pledges must be fulfilled.
It is indeed sad that our leaders enter into agreements with workers without fulfilling their agreements. This has happened over and over again. Today it is happening to almost all sectors of our economy. Take a look at our teachers, Doctors and nurses, including our students now. Ghanaians should hold Government responsible for the continued decay in the education sector.
It is a big shame that university students are now crying and demonstrating against high payment in our schools. It is a big shame that we are being led by people whose stock-in-trade is lip service. Leadership demands some modicum of integrity. What labour is demanding is not too much. What is GHc 300 monthly compared to GHc 3000 and GHc 6000 or more per month which members of Parliament and ministers receive respectively? Why should our leaders continue to deceive us?
We remind the Government not to court the anger of the proletariat. Workers deserve bread on their tables as at when due. Government should learn from what happened in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya.
Finally, we call on Government to find a lasting solution to the biting scarcity of liquefied petroleum gas and kerosene and especially our ailing electricity supply.
A discerning leadership would have taken a pragmatic and meaningful step to end the scarcity. This smacks of gross ineptitude. People are suffering because more than 60 percent of the Ghanaian population relies on kerosene and liquefied petroleum gas for cooking. The hardship is expected to rise during celebrations when most families cook at home unless Government does something drastic.
I remain oppressed untill the hungry are fed, the naked clothed, the sick healed and the homeless sheltered. We are all entitled to our national cake.
Sultan Nuhu Mohammed
