The National Democratic Congress Parliamentary candidate for the Trobu constituency, Mrs. Maame Efua Sekyi-Aidoo on Sunday 4th September, donated an amount of GHC1, 500 to the Muslim community of Afiaman, Abensu and Mayera in the constituency.
The donation was done when the astute Parliamentary candidate paid a courtesy visit to the (FIABEMA) Muslim community during their grand meeting towards the preparation of the incoming Eid-Adha 2016 festivity.
Maame Efua Sekyi-Aidoo has become a household name among the Muslim communities in the Trobu constituency for her regular presence in solidarity towards their welfare.
This event follows a similar exercise organized by her outfit, where she donated some bags of rice, cartons of milk, and bags of sugar to all Mosques within the constituency during the Holy month of Ramadan with some Imams receiving ram in advance for the Salah feast.
This recent donation was geared towards assisting the Muslims of the Afiaman and Pokuase electoral areas in their preparation of their local cemetery after an appeal for assistance was put towards her.
She also fulfilled her earlier pledge of assisting the local Islamic educational institution known as Makaranta with GHC 500 for the welfare of the institution as she called on the management of the institution to ensure the children had access to quality education and also offered to assist needy children to gain at least their basic education should she be endorsed to lead the constituency.
The aspiring MP also called on the Zongo Chief and his Imam to pray for peace as the nation prepares for the elections in December.
She promised to serve the interest of all religious groups when given the opportunity to serve as Member of Parliament as she took the opportunity to implore the youth and people of age to vote massively for her come the election day, so that she would be able to champion her vision of development for the welfare of Trobu.
The chairman of FIABEMA Muslim Association receiving the donation on behalf of the Muslims, immensely thanked the NDC candidate for her kind gesture and unfettered support to the Muslim community and all religious bodies in the constituency.
She was also praised for her efforts in manning five portable and a mechanized boreholes to residents of the neighboring communities. The Zongo Chief thus appealed to her for one more at a location he would later disclose.
The Imam led a special prayer for the aspiring MP, asking for Allah’s blessings and victory as she contests in the upcoming elections.
