The Greater Accra Zabarma Chief, Alhaji Pro-Umar Abubakar Tanko, has urged all Zabarma people who are Ghanaian citizens and are 18 years and above with sound mind to go out in their numbers and register without fear of intimidation.
According to him, Ghana practices rule of law with high level of respect for democracy, to that end Ghana has been recognised as a gate way of Africa’s democracy; hence he is certain that Zabarmas who are Ghanaian citizens will be treated accordingly without any intimidation.
The Greater Accra Zabarma Chief, who doubles as the President of Ghana Zabarma Association made the assertion on his Facebook wall.
“I pray each one of us from the Zabarma Tribe would go and register today. Don’t go if you are below 18 year” he stated.
Sarki Pro-Umar Tanko noted that there are Zabarma people whose parents were born in Ghana whilst others were in Ghana before independent and had made significant impact for Ghana to attain Independent.
The Accra Zabarma Chief, further revealed that he was born by a Ghanaian woman with a Zabarma father who was Ghanaian Army Officer.
