The New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by its Chairman, Freddie Blay, on May 6, 2020, paid a courtesy call on the National Chief Imam Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu where 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 this period of Ramadan included several bags of rice, sugar, cartons of milk, among others.
The party’s National Chairman used the occasion to thank Almighty Allah for bestowing on the leader of the Muslim community in Ghana, who recently turned 101 and prayed for blessings, long life and grace by making him an embodiment of wisdom and source of hope in the national life of our country and beyond.
Chairman, Freddie Blay then requested from the Chief Imam, to say special prayers for the NPP as well as the Akufo-Addo-led government for the rest of the nation to 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. He also, through his official spokesperson, Sheik Arimiyawo, 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 Fast.
He also intimated that the NPP has been very consistent in supporting the Muslim community during Ramadan and other religious occasions, for which reason he thanked the executives.
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.
