The Navrongo-Bolgatanga Youth Council of the Catholic Church (NABODYC) under the leadership of Reverend Father Clement Ajongba, who is the diocesan catholic youth chaplain, has expressed enthusiasm over the alliance with the Muslim community in the Upper East Region.

On a visit to the residence of the Deputy Upper East Regional Chief Imam, Alhaji Sadique Umar to climax this year’s month of Ramadan fasting and to also have developmental discussions between the two groups in the region, Rev. Father Ajongba said the diocesan is happy about the relationship and the support they have received from the Muslim community.

Father Ajongba said, “even though the main mission for our visit is to support our Muslim brothers to climax their month of fasting, we also wish to use this opportunity to thank the Deputy Regional Chief Imam and the whole Muslim community for your support, patronage, and cooperation on activities organized by NABODYC towards the realization of the objectives of the Sahel Peace Initiative (SPI).”

The Sahel Peace Initiative is a project by the NABODYC, powered by Catholic Relief Service Ghana (CRS), to help counter violent extremism. It also aims at promoting peace in the Sahel Regions of the country.

Father Ajongba, said there’s a need to promote healthy relationships among communities, ethnic groups, and religious entities, hence the SPI project.

Speaking on behalf of the Muslim community, Deputy Upper East Regional Chief Imam, Alhaji Sadique Umar thanked the NABODYC team for the visit. He said there’s a need to establish and maintain the mutual relationships among different entities in the region as it plays a major role in promoting and sustaining peace.

He added that the Muslim community is always ready for initiatives that will foster peace among different factors as Islam itself preaches.

The team subsequently proceeded to the Residence of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Zonal Leader, Alhaji Maulvi Mohammed Quaye for a similar purpose. Rev. Father Clement Ajongba and his team express gratitude to the Ahmadiyya Muslims for their continued co-operation with the NABODYC.

The team met Alhaji Mauli Mohammed Quaye and Abdullah Sherif, the Zonal Ahmadiyan Missionary Leader and the Zonal Ahmidiyan Youth Leader respectively.

Alhaji Mauli Mohammed Quaye gave a brief introduction of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission, its structure, and its operations. He also addressed the similarity in preaching peace across the different religions in the world.

A presentation of cartons of soft drinks and water, together with some fruits was made to Muslims in the region by the NABODYC.
