The acting Director of Communication and Corporate Affairs for the Group, Mr. Daniel Ohene Obeng, presented the items to the National Chief Imam at his residence in Accra on Friday April 21, 2023. Jospong Group according to Daniel and the entire nation were appreciative of the efforts of Sheikh Dr. Sharubutu in handling national issues and Ramadan (fasting); an important religious duty on Muslims which must be climaxed with peace and happiness.
“In this regard, Dr. Siaw-Agyepong and the entire Jospong Group are giving the items as their token to the National Chief Imam to celebrate with his family and the people around him”. He also used the opportunity to wish the national Chief Imam, who will be 104 years old on Sunday April 23, happy birthday in advance. Sheikh Dr. Sharubutu expressed gratitude to the Company and its Executive Chairman, Dr. Joseph Siaw-Agyepong for the gesture and prayed for God’s elevation and protection for the company and its Executive Chairman.
“May God honour him and his steps and may He continue to bestow his blessings on him” the national Chief Imam prayed.
Sheikh Dr. Sharubutu also prayed for Ghana and asked for God’s protection on the land. A special was made for Bawku; the national chief imam prayed for peace in the town and other neighbouring countries. He was grateful to God for the peace and harmony that Ghana enjoys as different religious bodies are able to coexist in peace and harmony. He noted that religious diversity is not for war because they all originated from a common source; God. Putting a smile on another person’s face is a blessing, adding; “if you put a smile on another person’s face, you will never lack from God.”
Sheikh Sharubutu noted that the donation would support their efforts of sharing with vulnerable and needy families in the community. Chief Imam expressed his sincere gratitude to the company and its Executive Chairman Dr. Siaw-Agyepong and the entire Jospong Group for the gesture.
Ramadan is not only a month of sharing; it also instils discipline in the Muslim Ummah.
