Vice President Kwesi Amissah- Arthur has called on religious bodies in the country to keep collaborating among themselves for the continuous unity and peace of Ghana.
He said the government considers them as partners in development and will therefore continue to recognise their contributions.
Vice president Amissah-Arthur said this when he called on the Ameer of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in
Ghana, Maulvi Alhaji Mohammad Bin Salih in Accra to formally congratulate the new Ameer for his confirmation.
He charged the new Ameer to continue from where his late predecessor, Maulvi Wahab Adam left off.
Vice-President Amissah-Arthur urged the leadership of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana to continue to lend support to the government as it embarks on the ‘difficult task’ of nation building.
He sought prayers from the mission to be said for the government in the wake of the economic difficulties and stressed the need for Ghanaians across the various religious faith to join hands in the quest to move the nation forward.
While congratulating the new leader on his ascension to the high office the Vice-President lauded the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in the country for contributing to a peaceful co-existence among the religious faiths.
He paid glowing tribute to the late Ameer and Missionary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, Maulvi Dr Wahab Adam who died on June 22, this year, for his selfless and dedicated service to peace building in Ghana.
Vice President Amissah-Arthur assured Maulvi Bin Salih of the government’s support and cooperation to achieve the vision for which he had set for himself.
Welcoming the Vice-President, Maulvi Bin Salih, who until his confirmation was the acting Ameer, explained that the Head of the Worldwide Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad Khalifa-tul Masih V, at a recent convention in the United Kingdom confirmed him as the Ameer and Missionary in charge of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission in Ghana.
He assured the Vice-President of his support for the government in the light of working together as partners in the collective interest of the people.
