Dear Editor,
Re: The Construction of $ 250,000 (Gh 1,250,000) worth Astro-Turf in Bolgatanga
The Ministry of Inner City and Zongo Development (MICZD) has taken note of a press conference by the Bolgatanga NDC dubbed “Constituency Watch” in which a number of inaccuracies, half –truths and falsehood were fed to the public and the media in Bolgatanga on 5 November 2018.
We wish to clarify to the public as follows;
1. The Ministry for Inner Cities and Zongo Development has not constructed or undertaken any Astro-turf in any community in the Upper East region. For the record, the Ministry is re- constructing, greening and fencing the Bolga Mobile park plus a borehole whose cost or value is a little over Ghc 400,000 and nowhere near the amount they falsely stated.

In their haste to give a dog a bad name and hang it they alleged that the Pitch in question should have certain facilities. It is unclear whether that is a statement of fact or suggestions. Because, under the scope of work, in this contract, it involves re-vegetation, fencing, reserve player seats, goal post and flood lights.

2. Again, hasting to create and feed the public with half-truths, the Bolgatanga NDC talks about short-change in the Bolgatanga project. Fact is that the Bolga project is only re-vegetation, fencing plus a borehole as stated earlier. It does not include changing rooms, reception, or dressing room as that of Walewale and Kyebi. And so the issue of value does not arise. Let it be stated here that your supposed “checks” is a falsehood as the project in question is in Ghana cedis and not dollars. We therefore wish to state that just like Bolgatanga, the Ministry has a similar project in Salaga, Yeji, Tafo and Oda.

3. For the record, Ministry of Inner City and Zongo Development has not constructed any Astro-Turf in Navrongo and therefore has no knowledge of what has been attributed to it.

4. Finally let the or critics of the Ministry be advised not to jump to hasty conclusions, half-truths and inaccuracies as done by the NDC in Bolgatanga in a bid to score cheap political mileage. To assume that all the projects are all Astro-turfs and must come with other facilities as you speculated is to say the least is mischievous and ignorant of due processes that ought to be followed and be mindful of the very “taxpayer” alluded to.

We are hopeful these sets the records straight. Counting on your cooperation. END.

Help Erase Negative Perception of Zongo/Muslims, Sheikh Mustapha Calls
The Minister for Inner-City and Zongo Development, Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid has urged the leadership of the Greater Accra Tijaniya Muslim Council of Ghana and all Muslims for that matter, to help erase the wrong perception that, not only the indigenes of Zongo but also the Islamic religion is violent.
The frequent social unrest and violent behaviors exhibited by some youth in the Zongos has accounted for this unfortunate perception about Zongos and Islam. A perception that has affected and reduced the high social standing of the many Muslim achievers in the eyes of the public Dr Abdul-Hamid added.
Dr. Mustapha Abdul-Hamid made these observations when the Executives of the Greater Accra Tijaniya Muslim Council of Ghana paid a courtesy call on him to brief him on the recent disturbances within the Tijaniya sect in Accra. He assured them that he will do everything within his power to ensure peaceful co-existence of all Muslim sects in Zongo Communities.
Led by their Vice President, Alhaji Fatawu Ahmed, the 9-member- delegation, made of some Tijaniya Chiefs and Imams, explained how some members of the sect have received un-provoked attacks on them and appealed to him to use his good offices to find an amicable solution to the ensuing unrest within the Tijaniya fraternity. These unrests followed a recent pronouncement by the leader of the Tijaniya/Jalloo Community, Sheikh Ahmed Abul Faid.
Briefing the Minister, Alhaji Ahmed said despite several un-provoked attacks on the Tijaniya/Jalloo communities, they have resolved not to take the laws into their own hands. He urged the Minister to intervene to bring sanity to the community. They were worried that despite reporting the case to the Police for redress, no one has been arrested yet.
The Greater Accra Tijaniya Muslim Council leadership were also worried that the behavior of some youth, believed to be supporters of the National Chief Imam has created fear and prevented them from going about their normal business peacefully. They noted that the ensuing unrest among some sections of zongo community fell in the purview of the Ministry for which reason they visited the ministry.
On his part, Dr Abdul –Hamid thanked them for the visit and assured them that the law enforcement agencies will deal ruthlessly with those who break the law even if they did so in the name of religion. He said that the government will remain a neutral and independent arbiter in the matter.
