Ghanaian comedian, Abdul Waris Umaru aka Comedian Waris, has expressed his concerns about the state of the nation.

As many Ghanaian Muslims embark on a pilgrimage or ‘Hajj’ to Mecca to engage in a series of spiritual exercises, one of which includes ‘stoning Satan,’ the comedian pointed out that ‘the real Satans are in the country ruling us.’

He listed several problems including severe hardship, unemployment, high costs of living, and so on as pressing concerns that need immediate attention.

“They left Ghana for Mecca to go and stone Satan when the real Satans are in the country ruling us… there’s so much hardship, no jobs, things are expensive, places are dirty, potholes, no street lights… no jobs after school, continuous tax on COVID,” he posted.

The comedian’s remarks come at a time when the nation is grappling with various economic challenges with citizens demanding better governance and improved living conditions.

A Muslim pilgrimage, known as Hajj, is an annual religious duty that is mandatory for all adult Muslims who are physically and financially capable of undertaking the journey to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, at least once in their lifetime.

It is one of the Five Pillars of Islam, which are the foundation of a Muslim’s faith and practice.

The Hajj occurs from the 8th to the 12th (or 13th) day of Dhu al-Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar.

During this time, pilgrims perform a series of rituals: they wear special white clothing called ihram, circle the Ka’bah seven times, walk between the hills of Safa and Marwah, drink from the Zamzam well, stand in vigil on the plains of Mount Arafat, spend a night in the plain of Muzdalifa, and participate in the symbolic stoning of the devil by throwing stones at three pillars.
