As the the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan draws to an end, MP for Yendi, Hon. Farouk Aliu Mahama in the spirit of the holy season has made a donation of one thousand bags of rice to the Muslim community in the constituency to support them celebrate the upcoming Islamic festivity, Eid-Ul-Fitr.
The huge donation is in consonance with his desire to enable needy Muslims and their families undertake the big celebration with ease and joy. The festival is considered as an indispensable spiritual event on the Islamic calendar.
The 1000 bags of rice have been well targeted and they are to be distributed to dozens of party faithfuls, opinion leaders and chiefs, youth and women groups and the Islamic clerics (ulemas).
Alhaji Farouk urges all Muslims to endeavour to share the little they have so as to enable the underprivileged enjoy the eid. He had supported the Muslim brothers during every Ramadan and Eid festival and would continue to assist. The MP maintains that it is his bid to nurture, grow, sustain and maintain the popularity of the party in the Yendi Constituency, a seat the NPP has held since 1992.
Alhaji Farouk also urges Muslim celebrants particularly those in Yendi to continue to use the blessings of the eid to pray for continued peace and tranquility in the town.
