The Chief Imam of Bia, Imam Yakubu Abdulai, says the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and his running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, represent the best hope for the development of Ghana.
In a welcome address delivered at Essam, in the Bia West constituency, when Nana visited the town, Imam Yakubu Abdulai stated that “we are convinced that you and Dr. Alhaji Bawumia represent HOPE, because we are aware of your track record and your unfailing commitment to see a prosperous Ghana. We have no doubt that Alhaji Bawumia desires same for Mother Ghana.”
According to the Chief Imam, the expectation of Moslems in Bia, and across the country, is for the government of the day to put “our taxes to judicious use”, and create an enabling environment, so businesses can thrive.
This, in the Imam’s opinion, will help Ghanaians “fish for ourselves.”
Imam Yakubu Abdulai’s request to the NPP flagbearer when he is voted into office is to enable the citizenry “heave a sigh of relief” from the hardships and suffering facing Ghanaians.
The Imam used the “opportunity to express our appreciation to Alhaji Dr. Bawumia for donating 400 bags of cement and GH¢10,000 towards the construction of an Islamic Senior High School for the Bia District.”
Imam Yakubu Abdulai also thanked Dr. Bawumia for “fulfilling his promise of sponsoring four Imams from Bia District for this year’s Hajj.”
