Accra: Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu Constituency, says he will be eternally grateful to the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Usman Nuhu Sharubutu, for visiting and supporting flood victims in his constituency.

The National Chief Imam led a delegation of Muslim stakeholder groups on Tuesday, November 21, 2023, to the Volta region to support victims of the Akosombo Dam spillage in North Tongu, where some 12,000 people are recorded to have been displaced from their homes.

He made a cash donation of GH₵ 70,000 and items that included 100 bags of rice, 200 packs of bottled water, 50 bags of sachet water, 250 packs of soft drinks, cloths, wrappers, footwear, books, and detergents.

The spillage, which commenced on September 15, caused flooding in communities in the lower Volta stream and affected close to seven districts in the Volta, Eastern, and Greater Accra regions.

The most affected districts included South Tongu, Central Tongu, North Tongu, Shai Osudoku, Anlo, Ada East, and Asuogyaman.

In a Facebook post, the MP described the visit as “an auspicious, memorable, and manifoldly blessed day which my beloved North Tongu shall never ever forget.

“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,” he said.

He said that the cash donation has been handed over to the Accountability Elders Council to support the construction of our alternative housing project.

The MP who hosted the Chief Imam at his residence said it was an extreme privilege and a profoundly inspirational moment for him.

The Chief Imam was accompanied by Clemence Dzata, his peace ambassador; members of the Council of Zango Chiefs; representatives of Muslim sects; and some members of his advisory board.

He delivered a message of hope to victims and led special prayers for all the displaced, including older citizens, mothers, children, and other vulnerable persons in the 21 camps.
