The Office of the Chief Imam, Sheikh Usmanu Nuhu Sharabutu has raised some reservations about the newly constituted Hajj board.

This comes a few days after the government released a 14-member committee which will be chaired by former New Patriotic Part (NPP) Member of Parliament and Minister Sheikh IC Quaye.

Some regional Chief Imams have since suggested that the board be dissolved and re-constituted to include regional representatives.

Spokesperson for the Chief Imam, Sheik Aremeya Shaibu said the Chief Imam was not even consulted before the announcement was made.

He told Accra-based Citi FM that he “would have wished that it would have been a bit more of looking at a structure, putting in place a certain interim Hajj board that will not be directly involved in the management and then you put in place an interim management that would be accountable to the interim board of trustees so that there would be some form of accountability.”

He said the previous board had issues of transparency, with some members being political adding that “It appears to me that there is going to be a repeat of that and that is my worry.”

“I served on the advisory board of the National Chief Imam, the opportunity would have been for us to also see and know those people who have been put in place.”

Sheik Aremeya Shaibu added that the main concern of the Office of the Chief Imam “is more of procedure on how it has been composed and ones the Chief Imam has not been brought into the picture directly, the way we expect, then we are unable to comment even on the political background of the people.
