Brong Ahafo Regional Minister, Mr Eric Opoku has stated emphatically that, any muslims that align themselves with the opposition NPP is not a true muslim because the Qur’an advises muslims to stay away from elephants which is the emblem of the party.

According to the minister, who backed his claim with a verse (Surah verse 105) in the holy book, muslims are admonished to stay away from elephants and that any who associates with that animal is fake.

Mr. Eric Opoku was addressing Chiefs, Imams and party executives in a meeting at Acherensua in the Asunafo South Constituency on Tuesday. He said the running mate to the NPP flagbearer, Alhaji Mahamadu Bawumia who is a Muslim, should know better and that instead of advising Muslims in the party to leave, he is rather swaying them to vote for the largest Opposition party.

He also took a swipe at Nana Akufo Addo saying the astute lawyer is not too strong to take over the reins of government.

He advised that, it will rather be appropriate for the old man to step aside for President Mahama go for another term while he (Nana) advises him (President) by virtue of his age and experience.
