Alan Kyerematen pays homage to Chief Imam

Mr John Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, a presidential hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has paid a courtesy call on the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, at his New Fadama residence in Accra.

Accompanied by members of his campaign team, he donated gallons of cooking oil, bags of rice and sugar to the National Chief Imam.

Receiving the presidential hopeful last Friday the chief Imam said “the visit of Mr Alan John Kyerematen and members of his campaign team has overwhelmed me.”

“I consider Alan as my son and it is very significant for anyone to make donations in this Holy month of Ramadan. I appreciate his visit and good intentions for this country, and I know Allah will fulfil his wishes,” he stated.

For his part, Mr Kyerematen noted that it had always been a tradition for him and also in the spirit of Ramadan to make an annual donation to the Muslim community.


According to the former Minister of Trade, the philosophy underpinning Ramadan demanded that one ought to give charity to the less privilege in society.

Mr Kyerematen stated that the National Chief Imam is a father to him and had always been very supportive of his career.

He, therefore, thanked the Chief Imam for his continuous support.

Mr Kyerematen stressed that “God-willing, if I am able to become President, I shall rely on you for your continuous support and prayers”. He commended the National Chief Imam for his devotion and selflessness towards national reconciliation and wished all Muslims a happy Ramadan.
