We don’t solely discover the feedback by Hon Sam George very horrible but in addition incendiary and reckless significantly coming from an MP. Such spiritual bigotry is one which portends an incredible hazard to the peace and stability of this nice nation. Sam George must be reminded that we now have come a great distance as a rustic in fostering spiritual tolerance and peaceable coexistence significantly amongst Muslims and Christians.
Indeed, Ghana, has, for hundreds of years served and continues to function a bastion of spiritual tolerance in Africa and past. This is consistent with the teachings of the Holy Bible and the Holy Quran, each of which admonish us to stay in peace and concord with out regard to any perceived spiritual variations. We are a one Ghana, a one folks, and a one nation united by frequent future.
It is that this age lengthy follow of ours that has allowed Muslims together with ‘Muslim politicians’ to simply accept invites to worship in church buildings. It is that this follow that has allowed Christians together with ‘Christian politicians’ to simply accept invites to worship in mosques. Since when does this act of spiritual coexistence develop into abominable for Sam George to come back calling Dr. Bawumia “a Muslim by day and Christian by night”?
Is Sam George suggesting that the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osumanu Shaributu, who on a number of events, visits church buildings to worship with Christians within the spirit of spiritual concord, can be a Muslim by day and Christian by evening? Is Sam George suggesting that Hon. Haruna Iddrisu, Hon Muntaka Mubarak and the various Muslim politicians who go to church buildings sometimes are usually not correct Muslims? Are all of them spiritual prostitutes? In any case, who’s Sam George to inform Muslims the way to follow their religion? How a lot does he learn about Islam?
Sam George can, as he’s extensively recognized, be reckless in lots of respects and nonetheless be forgiven, however he can’t be forgiven if he extends his recklessness to issues of faith and religion. We can not enable Sam George to destroy this nation for his egocentric political positive factors. We equally can not enable his likes within the NDC, notably Fiifi Kwertey, HE John Daramani Mahama amongst others, to stoke useless political stress within the nation for political expediency.

The NPP due to this fact calls on all right-thinking members of society particularly CSOs, the Parliament of Ghana, spiritual our bodies and conventional leaders to affix us to wholeheartedly condemn Sam George’s utter recklessness and demand of him, a minimum of for the sake of the workplace he occupies, to retract his inflammatory and harmful feedback, and apologize unconditionally for this disservice to our motherland.
