The National Chief Imam of Ghana, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu will be celebrating his 100 years this April 23rd.
Dr. Sharubutu was born in Accra in April 23, 1919. His ancestors are of Hausa ethnicity from Northern Nigeria.
Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu was appointed in 1988, to that position by the Council of Muslim Chiefs under the leadership of Chief Amida Braimah.
The critical contribution of Sheikh Sharubutu to the institution of the National Chief Imamship was to revolutionize and make it acceptable to Ghanaians. He brought to it charisma, leadership, respect and drive, that have never be known in Imamship in Ghana. He made it the centre piece of recognition of Islam and Ghana Muslims not only in Ghana but all over the world. To consolidate the institution, Sheikh Sharubutu, on his own and with his own resources organize the first conference of Regional Chief Imams, which meet annually on rotational basis to discuss matters of mutual interest. This action brought solidarity and understanding among the Regional Chief Imams and greater respect for the Sheikh.
