The Ashaiman Muslim Traditional Council and Mosi community, Zenu, in the Kpone-Katamanso District, have enskinned Umar Mohammed Baba Kere as the Mosi Chief for Zenu.
Umar Mohammed’s stool name is Naaba Saga I, and his colourful installation was approved by the Tema Traditional Council, where he successfully underwent all the rites that would qualify him to become the first Mosi Chief for his tribe in Zenu.
The peaceful and colourful coronation had in attendance Yussif Braimah, the Muslim Chief for the Tema Traditional Area, and other sub-chiefs from the northern ethnic groups.
Addressing his subjects, Naaba Saga I promised to work hard to maintain the peace among all the tribes at Zenu.
“It is only when we live in peace with all other ethnic groups, that our area, and for that matter Ghana, can develop with the needed speed,” he said.
He encouraged the youth to take advantage of the government’s flagship programme of ‘Planting for Food and Jobs’ to create employment for themselves.
He, on this note, urged the unemployed youth in the countryside to take advantage of the arable lands in those areas to go into farming, warning them that “economic life in the urban areas are not as easy as you think it is.”
Naaba Saga I commended the Muslim youth in Ashaiman and its environs for shunning wrong deeds, which, in the past, put them in that bracket as the ones who foment troubles, and used as objects for tomfoolery.
