The National Chief Imam in a symbolic gesture on Easter Sunday worshipped with the congregation at Christ the King Parish in Accra.
Sheik Nuhu Sharubutu and his delegation were warmly welcomed by the presiding priest Rev. Father Andrew Campbell with a colourful bouquet before they were ushered into the Church.
Rev. Andrew Campbell described the visit to the church, which is part of the Chief Imam’s 100th birthday celebration, as indicative of the peaceful co-existence between Christians and Muslims.
The visit is a reciprocal gesture to deepen religious tolerance following similar gestures to the Chief Imam by Archbishop Palmer-Buckle and Pastor Mensah Otabil.
The reverend father used the opportunity to admonish Christians to speak against corruption.
He will join the Asantehene and Asanteman later for the celebration of Otumfuo Osei Tutu II’s 20th anniversary.
