- Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia has donated Ghc1,000 bags of cement for rehabilitation of a mosque
- The donation is in fulfillment of a campaign promise made to the people of the Bawku area
Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia has supported the expansion of the Bawku Central Mosque in the Upper East region by donating 1000 bags of cement.
Since being built in the 1970s the Bawku Central Mosque has seen no facelift and has remained uncompleted in the past years.
The Muslim community, therefore, appealed to Dr. Bawumia and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for support in the build up to the 2016 elections.
At the time, Bawumia promised support them with a thousand bags of cement should the NPP be voted into power.
In fulfilment of that promise, the Vice President has now donated the said number of cements to help in the rehabilitation of the mosque.
Deputy Upper East Regional Minister, Frank Fuseini Adongo, praised Bawumia for the gesture, describing him as a man of his words.
“When the Vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia came around during the fasting period to pray with you for peace and development of this country, you appealed to him for support to complete and rehabilitate your central mosque. And today, he has directed him to come and present to you One thousand bags of cement he promised you,” Mr. Adongo said.
The chairman of Bawku Central Mosque and Ansarul Islam Ustarz Umar, was also grateful to the Vice President for honouring his promise to support the mosque.
According to him, the cements donate will go a long way to help in the expansion of the Bawku mosque.
“Now, we are going to put in strategies to get support from all over the world so that we can start the serious construction of this mosque. You can see serious defects in the mosque and 1,000 bags may not be enough, but it will be the beginning of a massive construction work for the face-lift of this mosque,” he said.
