The New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by its National Chairman, Freddy Blay, on Wednesday, May 6, paid a courtesy call on the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Nuhu Sharubutu, at which event, the party made a donation of some food items and an undisclosed amount of money.
The items donated by the NPP leadership as part of the party’s support for the Muslim Community in the period of Ramadan included several bags of rice, sugar, cottons of milk, among others.
Freddy Blay used the occasion, first of all, to thank Almighty Allah for bestowing on the Leader of the Muslim Community in Ghana, who recently turned 101, His enormous blessings, long life and grace, thereby making him an embodiment of wisdom and source of hope in the national life of Ghana and beyond.
He then requested the Chief Imam’s special prayers for the NPP as well as the Akufo-Addo government and indeed for the rest of the nation and the world at large to, inter alia, overcome the existential threats posed by the deadly Covid-19 pandemic.
On his part, the revered National Chief Imam gracefully obliged to the request and said the special prayers.
Through his official spokesperson, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu, the Chief Imam expressed gratitude to the NPP leadership for the donations which he said had come at the right time due to the pressure on the Office of the Chief Imam to fend for the have-nots in this period of Ramadan.
He also intimated that the NPP has been very consistent in supporting the Muslim Community during Ramadan and other religious occasions whereupon he thanked the party executives and wished them well.
Other members of the NPP delegation were the General Secretary of the party, John Boadu, the party’s First Vice Chairperson, Madam Rita Asobayire, the National 3rd Vice Chairman, Omari Wadie, the National Organizer, Sammi Awuku, and National Youth Organizer Henry Nana Boakye.
The others are National Women’s Organizer Madam Kate Gyamfua, National Nasara Organizer Abdul Aziz Futah and his two deputies.
The rest are a Nasara Founding Father, Alhaji Maiga and the Greater Accra Regional Nasara Coordinator.
