A LECTURER at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Dr Abdul-Kabir, has stated that Muslims deserve every support to enable them to celebrate the holy event of Eid-ul-Adha.
He said as a Muslim, he cherished the importance the religion played in national development and would continue to work towards the progress of the religion.
Dr Abdul-Kabir, popularly known as Dr Bala, who is also the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary aspirant for Asawasi Constituency in Kumasi, said this when he donated a number of items to Muslims in the constituency in preparation for the celebration of Eid-ul-Adha.
The items included 100 bags of rice, 20 boxes of cooking oil and 200 benches. The items would be distributed through the various mosques in the area.
Dr Abdul-Kabir urged Muslims to continue to offer the maximum support to the government to enable it to improve conditions in the zongos.
He emphasised that the NPP government had performed creditably to deserve another term in office via the December 7 general election and therefore urged Muslims to be wary of people who would want to adopt all manner of tricks to deceive them.
Dr Abdul-Kabir also promised to change the development fortunes of Asawasi, if he was elected the Member of Parliament (MP) in the December 7 election.
A well-known and respected personality in Asawasi, Dr Abdul-Kabir called on Muslims to put their political affiliations behind and unite to develop their communities.
He challenged the people to take education seriously, saying the various initiatives like the Capitation Grant and the School Feeding Programme were important programmes that Muslims must take advantage of.
