The National Coordinator of Nasara Club, a wing of the governing New Patriotic Party, has congratulated the newly-sworn in Supreme Court Justice, Amadu Tanko for his historic ascension to the Apex court.

Abdul Aziz Haruna Futa in a congratulatory message said the exceptional achievement of Justice Tanko will inspire Muslim youth in the country.

“I am extremely happy by the achievements of Justice Tanko and I want to really congratulate him and thank Allah for what He has done for him.

“I am excited by the historic rise of Justice Tanko not because he is a fellow Muslim or a fellow Zongo ‘boy’. I am happy because of what his success will do to many young people in the Zongos and across the country,” he said.

He added, “His well-deserved elevation will inspire a lot of young people in the Zongo community. It will tell them that if you study hard and you remain committed, you can also make it up there.”

Since Ghana gained its independence from colonial administration in 1957, no Muslim has ever been nominated to serve on the Supreme Court.

Thus, making Justice Amadu Tanko, the first Muslim to be considered and sworn-in for the apex court of the country.

Abdul Aziz Futa also commended President Akufo-Addo for such a historic nomination.

“Justice Tanko’s nomination is well-deserved and I think President Akufo-Addo did so well by nominating Justice Tanko as the first Muslim to the Supreme Court.”
