Accra- Mohammed Farahat, the Moroccan Ambassador to Ghana, has paid a courtesy call on the National Chief Imam of Ghana, Sheikh Usmanu Nuhu Sharubutu at his residence.

The purpose of the visit was to foster a cordial relationship between the Ghanaian Muslim Community and the Kingdom of Morocco.

Mr Farahat after extending regards from the King of Morocco, Mohammed VI, acknowledged the long-standing relationship between Muslims in Ghana and the people of Morocco.

He pledged to facilitate engagements between the National Chief Imam and the King of Morocco towards achieving mutual benefits in the area of education.

“I can only work hard to make it possible for the Ghanaian community to learn Islam in good condition and also let the boys and girls learn about their religion” Mr Farahat added.

According to him, granting scholarships to Ghanaian students and sponsoring of 10 pilgrims to embark on Hajj this year only showed the commitment of Morocco to Ghana.

The Ambassador, who assumed duty in Ghana in April this year donated some copies of the Holy Quran to the Imam who in turn presented a traditional Hausa attire to the Ambassador as a goodwill gesture.

The spokesperson for the Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu, laid before the ambassador, the intention of Sheikh Sharubutu to establish a university in Ghana.

He appealed to Mr Farahat to support the Imam in his education drive to enable more Muslim youth to acquire higher education in the country.

The ambassador was accompanied by a liaison, Dr Gamel Sinare, who facilitated the meeting.
