THE Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, Ghana, has ended its three-day convention with a call to all Ghanaians to co-exist for accelerated development of the nation.
Addressing the congregation on the third day, the Minister of Health, Major (rtd.) Courage Quashigah, described the theme for the convention – 'Promotion of world peace – The role of religion,' as appropriate as all religions in the world are founded on peace.
He urged Ghanaians to tolerate and co-exist with each other in order to sustain the peace the country is enjoying.
Stressing that development thrives on peace and discipline, Major Quashigah asked Ghanaians to eschew indiscipline in every aspect of their life.
The Shama Ahanta East Metro Director of Education, Ayyub Morgan, said whilst there is total freedom of worship in Islamic schools this does not exist in some Christian missionary schools. He said this is being done in violation of directives from the Ghana Education Service and appealed to the GES to ensure the enforcement of the directive.
The Ameer (Head) and Missionary in-charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, Ghana, Maulvi A. Wahab Adam, hinted that the convention at the Mission's conference centre at Ashongman attended by more than 4000 Ahmadis, might be the last as a new site has been acquired.
He said that Khilafat Ahmadiyya world-wide would be 100 years in 2008 and that plans are far advanced towards centenary celebration in Ghana.
Maulvi Adam called on all Ghanaian Ahmadis to contribute generously towards the centenary celebration.
