Akosombo Dam Spillage: National Chief Imam supports time with flood victims in North Tongu


Since the Akosombo Dam spillage disaster took place, many organisations and individuals have visited the victims to sympathise with them and to lend them a helping hand in diverse ways.

The National Chief Iman has also paid a visit to the flood victims in the North Tongu constituency of the Volta region.

In a post he made on his Facebook page, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa whilst expressing his gratitude on behalf of the people described the visit as “an auspicious, memorable, and manifoldly blessed day which my beloved North Tongu shall never ever forget.”

According to the lawmaker, it has been such a rare honour, an extreme privilege and profoundly inspirational hosting His Eminence, Sheikh Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, the National Chief Imam of the Republic of Ghana who insisted on personally visiting VRA-induced flood victims in my constituency, praying with them and making exceptionally generous donations.

He said the National Chief Imam’s soothing message of Allah’s bountiful blessings after any disaster was most uplifting, therapeutic and divinely reassuring, adding that His Eminence led special prayers for all the displaced including senior citizens, mothers, children and other vulnerable persons in the 21 camps.

In addition to a massive donation of carefully selected relief items, the globally celebrated religious leader and oracle of peace made a cash donation of GHS70,000.00.

The cash donation was promptly handed over to the Accountability Elders Council to support the construction of our alternative housing project.

“May I render profuse personal appreciation to His Eminence for the special prayers and blessings — an act of kindness I shall cherish all my life.”

“Our great nation is eternally grateful to Allah for the precious gift of this graceful, compassionate, peaceful, modest, caring, selfless, wise, distinguished and unifying religious leader par excellence.

In this together, rising together.” 🙏🏾
