The National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu on Sunday morning joined worshipers at the Christ the King Catholic Church in Accra when he stormed there with a powerful delegation during their Easter Sunday Celebration.
He was warmly welcomed by Father Campbell, and a colorful bouquet of a flower was presented to the Chief Imam before he was ushered into the Church.
The Chief Imam’s surprise visit was a reciprocal one to earlier engagements with former Archbishop of Accra, Gabriel Palmer Buckle, and other Christian leaders.
The visit was ahead of the celebration of his 100th birthday on Tuesday [April 23, 2019).
On the morning of his birthday, a public lecture will be held in his honour in Accra and the keynote speaker will be Dr. Mohammed Ibn. Chambas, United Nations General Secretary’s Special Representative for West Africa and the Sahel.
He will speak on the theme: “Advancement of modern Ghanaian society through peace, tolerance and development.” The special guest for the lecture is Dr Bawumia.
A number of national leaders, including some former Presidents, are also expected to attend.
