- The chief Imam, Dr Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, has denied his office has received GHc1 million promised them by Nana Appiah Mensah
- The assurance was given during a courtesy call on Mensah in June 2018
- Dr. Sharubutu therefore called on Ghanaians to reject rumours to the effect that the money was paid
The office of the national chief Imam, Dr Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, has denied it received GHc1 million from the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Menzgold Ghana Limited, Nana Appiah Mensah.
According to a report by MyNewsGH.com, Menzgold, under the auspices of NAM Mission, in June 2018, promised to give the money to help set up the ‘Sheikh Nuhu Osmanu Sharubutu Educational Fund’ to support the education of bright but needy Muslims in Ghana.
The announcement was made when the Dr. Sharubutu, together with Sheikh Abdul Kaadiru Taahiru, chief of Dagomba and president for the National Muslim Chiefs, paid a courtesy call on Mensah in his office.
The visit was to express gratitude over his philanthropic gesture towards destitute Muslims during the Ramadan.
Following recent incidents involving Menzgold, Ghanaians and some customers of Menzgold have been asking for the money gifted to the Chief Imam to be returned as it is believed to be part of the Menzgold looted cash by Nana Appiah Mensah.
The National Chief Imam’s office has however disclosed that it has not received the money; neither was the GH₵ 1 million nor any amount of money donated to the office of the Chief Imam, or any of the organizations under the supervision of the Chief Imam.
