The Chief of Nigerians living in the Ga East, La-Nkwantanang/Madina and Adentan municipalities, Eze-Kennedy has lauded President John Dramani Mahama for the steps taken to confer with his Nigerian counterpart, Goodluck Jonathan, on the way forward on the current security situation in Nigeria.
President Mahama was in Nigeria in his capacity as the ECOWAS Chairman to have discussions relating to the atrocities being committed by the militant group Boko Haram.
The discussions were to allow the two leaders plan how to rescue the over 200 girls abducted at Chibok in the Borno State in Nigeria.
According to Eze Ginikanwa, the steps taken by President Mahama demonstrated that he is a true and mature leader.
He explained that President Mahama had proved to West Africa that what was currently happening in Nigeria concerned and affected all member states of ECOWAS and the African continent as a whole.
He stated that he personally believed that Boko Haram did not originate from Islam, as the group claimed, because people who belonged to the Islamic religion were peace-loving people and their peaceful nature was known through the attitude they portrayed.
He further added that Boko Haram did not know Allah and did not believe in the teachings of Prophet Mohammed.
He said what President Mahama did had gone a long way to vindicate the words of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, that “the independence of Ghana is meaningless unless it is linked up with the total liberation of Africa”.
He said efforts by President Mahama to bring back the over 200 girls abducted by Boko Haram had really brought joy and happiness to the people of Nigeria and as a chief he and his subordinates would pray and continue to support President Mahama in his pursuit of peace in Nigeria.
He noted that that step would send a strong signal to other groups that they had no place on the African continent.
He appealed to all Ghanaians and Nigerians to live in peace and unity to help develop both countries because the ties that bound Ghana and Nigeria remained strong and effective.
Eze Ginikanwa urged President Mahama to continue with his leadership skills and qualities to help bring to rest the negative happenings in Nigeria.
He commended the women of Ghana and Nigeria for their efforts through peaceful demonstrations across the continent to register their stand against the abduction of the 200 girls by Boko Haram.
