The Member of Parliament for Asokwa Constituency, Madam Patricia Appiagyei on Friday morning donated food items running into thousands of cedis to Muslim Heads in Asokwa.
The MP also made provision for food and undisclosed cash to be sent to the 31 mosques in the constituency.
The food items consisted of rice, sugar, cooking oil and sardines.
At a brief ceremony in her home in Asokwa, the MP said she was appreciative of the sacrifices of Muslims in Asokwa, adding fasting and praying was not easy tasks to be undertaken by any person for 30 days during Ramadan.
“I am donating these items to you, Muslim heads and the people in the 31 mosques in Asokwa so that you can end the 30 day fast in peace and enjoy some food at the ensuing EID”, the MP stated.
She noted that the gesture was to show gratitude to the leaders of the Muslim folk in Asokwa for what they do for the constituency.
She said the constant prayer and fasting by Muslims has ensured that Asokwa remained peaceful during her tenure.
Madam Appiagyei asked the youth of Asokwa, especially those who identified with the Muslim faith to be law abiding and responsible just like their leaders.
“I am very appreciative of the commitments of my Muslim heads who offer prayers for me and the people of Asokwa so we can enjoy peace in our constituency and I pray that the youth look to the attitude of these leaders and learn lesson from same”
Mallam Musa Tanko, Ahinsan Muslim Head on behalf of his colleagues thanked the MP for the gesture.
He revealed that the legislator had done such donations for a decade now, an act he said was unprecedented in the politics of Asokwa.
Mallam Tanko commended the MP for building an Islamic School in Asokwa and wished that other MPs emulate the attitude and gesture of the Asokwa MP.
“As Muslim Heads we continue to enjoy from the kindness of Mama Pat and we pray she gets renewed strength to lead and to ensure the prosperity of all in Asokwa”, Mallam Tanko prayed.
