He said assured that “this won’t be my last and I pray to the Almighty God to continue to give you good health and long life so that we can continue to visit you”.
In a warm and lively conversation with the Chief Imam, Kojo Antwi recalled with nostalgia his days as a young boy growing up at nearby Darkuman and playing around the home of the Chief Imam.
He described the Chief Imam as a symbol of peace, whose modest lifestyle and humility should be emulated.
