Bawumia added that he would further enhance the Zongo Development Fund to bring more development to Zongo communities nationwide during his tenure.

Dr Bawumia stated that the Zongo Development Fund has already facilitated the implementation of over 200 projects within Islamic communities, and he hopes to do more when given the mandate.

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia urged the Muslim communities to support him in his presidential ambition.

He said Ghanaians were sceptical that there could ever be a Muslim presidential candidate from one of the leading political parties in Ghana, but his candidacy has put all those doubts to rest.

He added that his victory in the upcoming December 7 elections would benefit everyone and bring significant development to the northern parts of Ghana that have suffered neglect from successive governments.
