Catholic Bishops Are Being Citizens, Not Spectators – Chief Imam Spokesperson



Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu, spokesman of the National Chief Imam has said the Catholic Bishops’ recent criticism of the Akufo-Addo led government was only a concern by responsible citizens.

He said the President during his inauguration admonished Ghanaians to be citizens and not spectators, therefore the Bishops’ were doing just that.

The Catholic Bishops had questioned the president’s commitment to protecting the public purse and wondered if he ever saw the glaring poverty in the country.

Speaking on GTV, Sheikh Aremeyaw said “In the President’s inaugural speech, he made a very profound statement that provides grounds for everybody in a very responsible manner to criticize government… that we should be citizens and not spectators.

“Meaning that as citizens we should not look on just as spectators do when a match is ongoing, but that we should be citizens who carry the responsibility to even keep the government on its toes., make inputs where it arises and in my view, this is the grounds on which the Catholic Bishops come out with such statements,” he said.
