Member of Parliament for Yendi Constituency, Farouk Aliu Mahama has made a donation to Muslim community in Yendi Constituency as the holy month of Ramadan begins.
The package which is one thousand (1000) bags of sugar, assorted items and an undisclosed amount of money to the constituents to support them carry out their month long Ramadan fasting.
The donation made is to cover Islamic clerics, major Mosques, women and youth groups, opinion leaders and chiefs, party faithfuls, political figures, elders and the less privileged in and around Yendi.
Alhaji Farouk also believed this donation will go along way to support the needy Muslims undergoing spiritual cleansing during this period, considered as one of the pillars on the Islamic calendar.
This year’s Ramadan comes at a time our country’s economy is under the immense weight after the peak period of the Coronavirus pandemic and the current geopolitical crisis in the East.
The MP therefore urges all Muslims to endeavour to cease this holy period to pray for the government of President Akufo-Addo to steer the ship of state out of these high tides of economic challenges.
He urges all Muslims to share the little they have with the less privileged. Over the years, he has supported Muslim brothers during the holy month of Ramdan and would continue to assist in order to maintain the good relationship and wishes the Muslim world a fruitful fasting period.
Hon. Farouk Aliu Mahama also urges Muslims in Yendi to continue to pray for sustained peace and tranquility in the constituency and in Dagbon.
