Kumasi – The first Muslim Supreme Court (SCJ) in Ghana, Justice Amadu Tanko has paid a courtesy call on a Kumasi-based Cleric, Sheikh Anas Tawfiq Ibrahim Bakri who had rebuked the judge.

The purpose of the visit was to strengthen the existing relationship between the two personalities which was built after a conundrum over remarks on inheritance and hijab made by the judge during his vetting at Parliament.

The remarks warranted condemnation and invectives from the cleric who is the head of Darul Hadith, an organisation that propagates Islam.

Beyond smoking the peace pipe, the visit was intended to promote healthy discussions on how to explore ways of achieving a common good for the Muslim populace.

“JSC. Amadu Tanko and his entourage joined us in Maghrib prayers. We wish to thank them for the visit, as we also pray for Allaah’s guidance and protection unto Justice Tanko” a statement on Darul hadith’sFacebook page read.

Upon the invitation of the Judge, Sheikh Bakri on June 6, 2020, led a six-man delegation to visit Justice Tanko at his Accra residence where issues discussed were centred on the drafting of a Muslim Inheritance Bill.
