The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central Constituency in the Central region, Kennedy Agyapong has stated that the loyalty shown him by Muslims communities in Ghana is matchless.
Kennedy Agyapong, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central constituency, in the central region has said that Muslim communities in Ghana have been loyal to him more than any other sect in the country.
He said he cannot find words to describe Muslims’ loyalty shown him, adding that he’s always happy to reciprocate the love and blessings he receives from the Muslim Community.
Kennedy Agyapong, who was arrested and charged for treason for inciting Akans to kill Ewes, explained that he developed deeper love for Muslims after some youth saved him with their prayers when he was arrested in 2012.
He recalled the Muslim youth both men and women were seriously praying for his release some few meters away from the police headquarters.
''When I came out of the armoured vehicle, I saw some Muslims who had sat on the ground near the police headquarters praying for my release,'' he recounted in an interview on Net 2 TV.
He revealed that he was so touched when ''Muslims in Ashaiman went to my cold store to watch the place for me, Muslims in Mamobi also had a picture of President Akufo-Addo, then NPP flagbearer, with mine attached to it. I’m always happy to reciprocate the love shown me.''
To show his love to Muslims, he donated items worth millions of cedis to the Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, and some Muslims for the Eid al-Fitr celebration, on Wednesday, June 5, 2019.
Some of the items were 300 bags of rice and 100 boxes of cooking oil.
He indicated that he donates items to the Muslim community every year but decided to extend his donation to the house of the Chief Imam.
Agyapong praised the Chief Imam for visiting a Catholic church to celebrate his 100th birthday, while stating that Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu deserves a Nobel Peace Prize for being a peace maker.
The outspoken law maker said churches and mosques in Ghana have not experienced bombings because the Chief Imam and some pastors are noted for peace.
The business mogul, who has returned from his travels in some parts of the world, in an interview with Net 2 TV said: ''Our Muslim brothers and sisters will start their Ramadan tomorrow Wednesday, I do the donation every year to Muslim brothers and sisters but this time I want to extend the donation to the house of Chief Imam. During his 100th birthday he exhibited that he’s a man of peace.''
Debunking claims that he donates to Muslims only, Agyapong said he replicates same gesture to Christians during Christmas.
''I visit about ten to twelve churches during Christmas to donate to them,'' he explained.
He indicated that his staff at Kumasi-based Ash FM also donated some of the items to the Muslim communities in Kumasi.
Agyapong gave the assurance that the donation has nothing to do with politics.
