As part of his efforts to increase interreligious peace, Ghana's chief imam attended Easter Mass ahead of his 100th birthday celebration.
Sheikh Osman Sharubutu recently captured the public eye after pictures went viral of his attendance at Mass at Christ the King Catholic Church in Accra.
According to GhanaWeb, parish priest Father Andrew Campbell welcomed the Muslim leader, and Christians from the community later visited the imam's house. The country's vice president, Mahamudu Bawumia, applauded the efforts of peace in the country.
"At the time the world is experiencing religious intolerance,...Ghana is enjoying a great collaboration between the two main religions in our country," Bawumia told GhanaWeb.
