Second largest mosque in West Africa opened in Ghana
President Nana Akufo-Addo on Friday, commissioned the National #Mosque of Ghana Complex, at a brief ceremony in Nima. The edifice contains a grand mosque which is the second largest in West Africa, an office complex for the National Chief #Imam, a #clinic fitted with #laboratories and a #pharmacy, a #library and a #morgue.
With the current and immediate past Presidents of the Republic of #Niger, their Excellencies Mohammed Bazoum and Mahamadou Issoufou, and Professor Ali Erbaş, President of the Directorate of Religious Affairs of #Turkey, present, President Akufo-Addo applauded the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, as well as the Government and people of the Republic of Turkey for its financial and technical support offered towards the construction of the Complex.
“The minaret of this mosque is very visible from many parts of #Accra. For me, it is not just the beauty that it adds to Accra’s skyline that excites me necessarily. I am even more excited by the fact that, as a Christian-majority country, a symbol of #Islam can beautifully adorn our landscape, and expose the beauty of #religious harmony that we enjoy in Ghana, and which continues to be the envy of the rest of the world,” the President said. https://lnkd.in/eEcAE8M
