The items include 40 bags of rice, 20 gallons of frytol oil, 5 bags of sugar among other items.

Alhaji Siedu, further lauded the Akufo-Addo led Government for very a successful Pilgrimage last year indicating that, adding it was one of the best ever.

"In fact, I use this opportunity to thank President Akufo-Addo and his government for the support before, during and after the Hajj and the 2018 Hajj is so far the best because government fed us well and also provided us with good health care," he emphasized.

Alhaji Siedu said Muslims would continue to pray and protect the peace of this country for rapid socio-economic development.

This, he asked Muslims to be law-abiding and seek the face of Allah in all their endeavours.
