The National Executives Officers of the NPP, led by its General Secretary, John Boadu, on Friday, May 24, called on the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu at his residence in Accra.

The visit is in recognition of the significance of the last ten days of Ramadan, the night of one of which is the “Laila-tul-Qadr”, meaning, the “Night of Power”, in Islam.

It is the night that the Holy Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammed (S.A.W), and the Quran says, worshipping Allah that night, is worth much more than worshipping Him in over 1000 months without that night.

Muslims intensify their supplications to Almighty Allah in the last 10 days of Ramadan particularly at night, as no one knows exactly which of the ten nights, will be the “Night of Power”.

Mr. John Boadu on behalf of the delegation, thanked the Almighty Allah for granting the National Chief Imam enormous blessings, grace, long life, and wisdom, thus making him one of reasons why Ghana is arguably, the most peaceful country in Africa and beyond.

Mr. Boadu also asked the Chief Imam to say special prayers for the NPP, the Akufo-Addo led government and Ghana.

For his part, the National Chief Imam, who recently turned 100 years, expressed gratitude for the gesture from the NPP leadership, following which he said special prayers for the party and government as well as the rest of the nation.

The delegation donated an undisclosed amount of money, as well as several bags of rice and sugar to the leader of the Muslim community in the country as part of party’s support for these important religious festivities.

The delegation included the party’s National First Vice Chairperson, Rita Asobayire.
