Controversial Sekou Nkrumah, the third son of Ghanaís Premier President, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah must be in a fight of his life as his actions or inactions have incurred for him the wrath of some Muslims leaders in the country.
These include Alhaji Abubakar, Chief of Moshie at Nima, Alhaji Isahaka Boss, opinion leader, Alhaji Ahmed Salifu, Opinion leader, Pig farm, and Aska of the NDC Zongo caucus.
Sekouís Crime? According to the leaders, they feel highly disappointed and disgusted at Sekou for blaspheming against one of the stalwarts of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and respected Muslim brother of the country, Alhaji Said Sinare.
In an exclusive interview with ďthe Accra TimesĒ, the angry Muslims could not phantom why Sekou should refer to Alhaji Said Sinare as a nonentity or nobody. They said when President John Evans Atta Mills appointed Alhaji Said Sinare as Ghanaís ambassador to Egypt, Sekou, known for opening his mouth wide, declared that the President had made a bad appointment, since Saidís appointment was not going to bring anything meaningful to the country by way of investment.
Rather, the appointed ambassador was only going to have fun or jamboree in Egypt.
According to them, what annoyed them most was that, this very man Sekou was denigrating, was through his instrumentality that Sekou became an NDC member.
What was more; it was through Alhaji Saidís father, Alhaji Saleh Said Sinare that Sekouís father, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah married his mother, Fathia. This is because, Alhaji Saidís father was not only one of the first Muslim scholars to have studied in Egypt, but also the first Ghanaian to marry an Egyptian and it was through his (Said fatherís) instrumentality that the marriage between Nkrumah and Fathia came about.
That apart, Saidís father was one of the right hand men of Dr. Nkrumah and through him Nkrumah knew the first President of Egypt, Gamel Abdul-Nassar.
They maintained that, Alhaji Saleh Said Sinare was the first Director of counter-intelligence of the Ghana Armed Forces as well as a top spiritual leader of the country.
"Now, how can Sekou Nkrumah describe his son as useless?" They queried furiously.
They maintained that sekous's actions and inactions had rather made him a black sheep in Nkrumahís family and that no one will take him serious in his life for being ungrateful to President Atta Mills when he eventually adopted him as a son. ďWhy is it that Sekouís other brothers and Sister have gained respect globally, but Sekou rather looks like a useless tissue in a dirty political dustbin?Ē, they asked angrily.
The angry Muslim leaders indicated that Sekouís behavior does not correspond as a son of such a globally respected leader like Dr. Nkrumah. According to them, they did not want to respond to him initially because of his alleged addiction to drugs, which had diluted his sense of reasoning.
Turning to Alhaji Said Sinare, they stated that he was the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayawaso Central and currently National Vice-Chairman of the ruling party and has gone through the mill as a politician.
What is more, Alhaji Sinare has over the years contributed positively to both mother Ghana and the ruling NDC party of which he belongs, hence the Presidentís recognition of this and his appointment as ambassador to Egypt.
They were full of praise for President Atta Mills for this recognition, and promised to continuously pray for him for the success of his ďBetter Ghana AgendaĒ program.
