Why Chief Imam is trending


The Chief Imam, Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, has gained traction on social media after some religious comments passed by the Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam Nartey George.

The lawmaker, in a bid to take a swipe at the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, called the latter a ‘religious prostitute.’ He explained that the vice president professes his faith in both the Islamic and Christian religions concurrently, seeing that he is mostly seen in churches and mosques, for political activities.

Explaining further, Sam George referenced instances when the Vice President, Dr Bawumia, remained silent on issues that were most important to Muslims, such as the Hijab controversy, and the killings of Muslim youth in Kumasi.

To him, no true Muslim will also publicly proclaim Jesus as Lord and Saviour or kneel before men of God for prayers. “When the issue of the Hijabs came up in this country for Muslim girls, did you ever hear Dr. Bawumia speak? When the issue of fasting for girls came up during Ramadan, he was silent.

When the Muslim Zongo youth were killed in cold blood in Kumasi, Dr Bawumia was silent. “No true Muslim anywhere in this world believes that Jesus Christ is our lord and saviour.

No true Muslim kneels before a Catholic priest or a pastor to lay hands on them – only Bawumia. If you like, you can take the Suraj Mariama that talks about who Jesus is. They do not see Jesus Christ as their lord and personal saviour as we do,” he said.

In the wake of this, some social media users have also been insinuating that the Chief Imam is also a ‘religious prostitute’ per Sam George’s analogy. According to some X users, the Chief Imam has been captured in pictures and videos kneeling before priests and allowing them to place hands on his head, making him also a ‘religious prostitute,’ going by the explanation of the MP.
