Muslims all over the world today (13 May 2021) are celebrating the successful completion of Ramadan, a 30-day period of fasting and consecration to God.

Presenting the items to zongo leaders for onward distribution to households, Ralph Poku Adusei said he deems it a great privilege to be of service to the Muslim community in Bekwai. He added that he is eternally grateful to God for guiding Muslims in the community and Ghana at large throughout their fast.

Lawyer, as he is affectionately called, expressed the hope that the Almighty God will answer the prayers offered by the Muslim community in Bekwai, and help Ghana emerge from the COVID-19 crisis in which it finds itself.

Among the items he distributed were bags of rice, oil, sardines, chocolate drinking powder, sugar and milk.

“I am committed to partnering with the zongo community in Bekwai to ensure that we work together to develop the standard of living in our zongo community and in Bekwai as a whole.

“Please accept this little token as you end your fast. Hopefully, with God’s blessings, many more will follow,” he said.

Making the donation, Poku Adusei held separate meetings with the four imams and 11 chiefs in Bekwai District. At the engagements, he announced that, with the incumbent NPP MP and first deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu (Joe Wise), signalling he will not run for the seat in the 2024 parliamentary elections, he will offer himself for election to represent the people of Bekwai in the ninth parliament of the Fourth Republic, which begins on 7 January 2025.
