The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has donated food items and undisclosed amount of money to the Natinal Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharabutu.
The items, including several bags of rice, sugar cartons of milk among many others are part of the party’s support for the Muslim Community as they observe the Ramadan.
The NPP, led by its National Chairman, Freddy Blay paid a courtesy call on the Chief Imam on Wednesday 6th May 2020 during which presentation of the items was done.
Mr. Blay thanked Allah Almighty for bestowing on the Chief Imam who recently celebrated his 101st birthday His enormous blessings, long life and grace and making him an embodiment of wisdom and source of hope in the national life of the country and beyond.
He requested the Chief Imam to say special prayers for the NPP as well as the Akufo-Addo Government and the rest of the nation and the world at large to overcome the existential threats posed by the deadly Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The Chief Imam gracefully obliged to the request and said the special prayers.
Through his official spokesperson, Sheikh Arimiyawo, the Chief Imam expressed gratitude to the NPP leadership for the donations, which he said has come at the right time due to pressure on the Office of the Chief Imam to fend for the have-nots in this period of the Ramadan Fast.
He noted that the NPP has been very consistent in supporting the Muslim Community during Ramadan and other religious occasions and 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; the National Youth Organizer, Henry Nana Boakye; the National Women Organizer, Madam Kate Gyamfua; the National Nasara Organizer, Abdul Aziz Futah and his two deputies; a Nasara Founding Father, Alhaji Maiga, the Greater Accra Regional Nasara Coordinator and a host of others.
