The Planning Committee will, in due course, announce other programs for the year-long commemoration of the centenary anniversary, which will reflect on the principles and beliefs of His Eminence.

Meanwhile, the Planning Committee and the Office of the National Chief Imam has taken note of posters of unapproved programs concerning the centenary 100th Anniversary with names and images of the Chief Imam and the leadership of our country.

While we appreciate people's warmth towards the Chief Imam and their zeal to organise programs in his honour, we entreat that programs which do not have his blessings, or the approval of his office should not be presented as such to the general public.

It is important we accord the Chief Imam and his office the necessary courtesies by not using his images for programs, which he is not aware of. We look forward to Ghanaians joining us to express our gratitude to the Almighty Allah for the blessings He has bestowed on our father on his 100th birthday. Thank you.

SIGNED: SHEIKH AREMEYAO SHUAIB (SPOKESPERSON, NATIONAL CHIEF IMAM)
