In line with his annual ritual, NPP Yendi parliamentary hopeful, Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama as the holy month of Ramadan kickstarts has made a donation of 800 bags of sugar and assorted items to the Muslim community to support them carry-out their month-long Ramadan fasting.

The donation is in his bid to support needy Muslims undergoing spiritual cleansing during the period, considered as one of the pillars in the Islamic calendar.

This year’s Ramadan comes at a time where the globe is under immense weight of the Coronavirus pandemic and the compounding economic misery it is wrecking.

The son of late former Vice President said Muslims should endeavour to cease this holy period to pray to the Almighty Allah to cleanse the pandemic from the face of the earth. He also urged Muslims to share the little they have.

Over the years he supports his Muslim brothers during the holy month and would continue to assist in order to maintain the good relationship and wishes the Muslim world a fruitful fasting period.

Alhaji Farouk admonished the Muslim community in Yendi to continue to pray for continued peace and tranquility in the municipality.

However, Muslims in the Yendi municipality appreciates the kind gesture of Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama for his unceasing support to the people.
