Former Managing Director of Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) Alfred Obeng Boateng has donated ceiling fans to the Muslim fraternity of Bibiani market to enable them furnish their newly constructed ultra-modern mosque.
The donation came as a result of a request which was made through the Electoral Area Coordinator of Bibiani Newtown, Mary Darko, barely two months ago.
As usual of him, Mr Obeng Boateng decided to honour the request during their Eid-Adha celebration.
Donating the items on behalf of the philanthropist, who also doubles as the CEO of Approachers Group of Companies, Halifax Amande, the Secretary of Friends of Approachers, told the beneficiaries that the peace that Western North Region and Ghana as a whole had been enjoying since time immemorial is partly due to the unity and brotherly relationship between Muslims and Christians and therefore all should be proud and continue deepening such relationship.
He further stated that next year is another election year and they should assess the previous government’s performance and compare it with the current one to make an informed decision and nothing else.
He continued that every individual wants progress, so election violence should be a thing of the past.
The Chief Imam extended his profound gratitude and appreciation to Mr Obeng Boateng for his annual donation in different kinds to the Muslim community in Western North Region.
He also assured him that at the opportune time they will also honour him.
