The Running Mate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for Election 2020, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyeman, has donated quantities of provisions and assorted items worth several thousands of Ghana Cedis to Muslims in the Central Region towards the success of this year’s Ramadan.
She said the gesture was a demonstration of her commitment and dedication of the party to the welfare of the Muslim community throughout the country and the need to work in unity, peace and harmony at all times for sustainable development.
Prof. Opoku-Agyeman requested Muslims during their period of prayer and fasting to pray for the nation and in particular the 2020 presidential candidate of the NDC and the former President, John Dramani Mahama.
Receiving the items, Sheik Alhaji Yusuf Mahammed Kamagateh, the Central Regional Chief Imam, expressed appreciation on behalf of the Muslims in the Central Region and especially Cape Coast, to Prof. Opoku-Agyeman and the NDC for the donation which he said was “most timely and handy for the religious season”.
He prayed for peace and oneness of purpose in the leadership of the NDC, especially former President Mahama and his running mate, Prof. Opoku-Agyeman.
Ibrahim Mazawajey Mamudu, the Sariki Zongo was full of praise for Prof. Opoku-Agyeman not only for the presentation but also for her proven humility and peaceful nature in addition to her “being a mother for all irrespective of the person’s tribe, religion, region or political orientation”.
Prof. Opoku-Agyeman was accompanied by George Kweku Ricketts Hagan, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Cape Coast South Constituency, Dr Kwamena Mintah, MP for Cape Coast North Constituency and Richard Gyan, MP for Gomoa West all in the Central Region.
