At the donation made at the residence of the National Chief Imam, MTN Ghana presented a cheque of GH¢10,000 to His Eminence Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu plus a big ram, and Airtime worth GH¢1,000.


Other items donated include 15 bags of rice, 10 cartons of vegetable oil, 40 packs of mineral water, 15 packs of soft drinks, 10 trays of tin milk, 4 boxes of milo, 5 bags of sugar, and 2 boxes of teabags.

“May Allah, the Most Gracious and Most Merciful, bestow on the Chief Imam and our households, good health, prosperity and total peace throughout the year. May He grant you and your families’ abundant grace and holiness now and always,” Mohammed Abubakar prayed.

He further charged the Muslim community to be measured in the celebrations and also adhere to all the COVID-19 safety protocols.


On behave of the Chief Imam, Sheikh Aremeyaw Shaibu thanked MTN Ghana for the gesture.

“We are profoundly grateful for this gesture that you have done. May Allah increase you. We must become kind and generous to the needy. Whatever Allah has given you, you must also give some to the poor.

“Our hope is that God himself will reward you by advancing your company. May Allah strengthens you and may Allah give you peace and harmony,” he added.
