Bawumia Assists Muslims
Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Vice-Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has donated two jumbo water tanks to Muslims of Effiakuma and Sekondi in the Western Region to help them store safe drinking water and for ablution during the Ramadan period which started on Monday.
Making the presentation on behalf of the NPP vice presidential candidate, Muazu Issaka, founder and President of United Zongo for Bawumia noted “Bawumia as a Zongo brother knows that in every Ramadan, Muslims needed to have enough water for ablution and other essential activities, hence the donation”.
Muazu Issaka thanked the Chiefs for their support and appealed to them to continue to remember Dr Bawumia and Nana Addo in their prayers especially as they journey through the length and breadth of the nation campaigning.
He told the Muslims that it was a wise decision by Dr. Bawumia for advocating a fair representation of Muslims at the seat of government.
According to him, such a move would ensure national cohesion and achieve greater participatory democracy in governance.
Receiving the water tanks, the Western Regional Chief Imam, Sheikh Alhaji Imam Ali Hassan Ali (Al-Falaki) pointed out that Allah was pleased with the donation in that the water to be stored in the tanks would be used for ablution to worship Him.
The NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Sekondi, Andrew Agyapa Mercer appealed to Muslims in the Zongo communities to show their support for Dr Bawumia by voting massively for the NPP to enable the former deputy Governor of the Bank of Ghana become the next vice president.
Some residents of the Sekondi Zongo Community expressed their delight at having Dr Bawumia as a shining and credible example for Muslims and Zongo communities in Ghana.
They therefore, commended the NPP for being consistent with its policy of achieving religious diversity in governance from the days of former President John Agyekum Kufuor and now the duo of Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr Bawumia adding “Insha Allah NPP will win this year”.
