The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central Constituency in the Central region, Kennedy Agyapong has dropped a hint as to why he loves Muslims and the blessings he receives from them.
According to him, he developed a deeper love for Muslims during his arrest and subsequent charge of treason in 2012 where some youth saved him with their prayers.
Mr Agyapong who was arrested and charged for treason for inciting Akans to kill Ewes explained that some Muslim youth both men and women were spotted seriously praying for his release some few meters away from the police headquarters.
He recalled that another set of Muslim youth went to his cold store at Ashaiman to boil coffee just to keep an eye on the cold store to prevent angry youth from ransacking the place.
According to him, Muslims during their Wednesday programmes on air ensure that they say a word of prayer for him saying he cherishes their kindness towards him.
He said he’s always glued to his seat on Wednesdays to listen to Muslim programmes.
The outspoken law maker said though Mamobi is a predominantly NDC area, there are some people in that neighbourhood who love him to the core and don’t care so much about his political colour.
He said he’s always happy to reciprocate the love shown to him to Muslim communities adding that the loyalty shown to him by the Muslims communities in Ghana is incomparable.
In an interview with Net 2 TV monitored by MyNewsGh.com, he recalled, ‘When I came out of the armour vehicle, I saw some Muslims who had sat on the ground near the police headquarters praying for my release. I was so touched, Muslims in Ashaiman went to my cold shop to watch the place for me, Muslims in Mamobi also had a picture of President Akufo-Addo then NPP flagbearer with mine attached to it. I’m always happy to reciprocate the love shown me’.
To show his love for Muslims, the MP for Assin Central constituency who donates to Muslims every year this time round extended his donation to the Chief Imam Sheikh Dr. Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu and some Muslim communities on Tuesday.
Some of the items include 300 bags of rice, 100 boxes of cooking oil and others.
He indicated that his staff at Kumasi-based Ash FM also donated some of the items to the Muslim communities in Kumasi.
