The new Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome/Kwabenya, Sarah adwoa Safo, has admonished the Muslim community to use the period of ramadan to pray to allah to heal the country' sailing economy which has brought untold hardship on the citizenry.
According to her, the present economic situation as highlighted by the Finance Minister, Seth Terpker, in his supplementary budget presented to Parliament for approval, was a clear testimony that only a miracle from Allah would turn around the dwindling fortunes of the country.
She said the leadership in whose care the management of the economy has been entrusted have lost focus and prayed to the Muslim community to also remember them in their prayers as they bring the thirty-day fasting and prayers to a close.
The Dome/Kwabenya legislator made these observations last Monday when she donated some items worth thousands of cedis to the Imams within her constituency as part of her annual contribution to the Muslim community during such events. The gesture, the MP noted, was from her own coffers as her share of the MP's Common Fund has not been forthcoming in recent months.
A representative of the Imams within the Dome/Kwabenya constituency, Shaibu Issah, who received the items, thanked Ms Safo for her generosity and prayed to Allah to bless and grant her good health to pursue her vision for the constituency and the country at large.
