Mr Banasco Seidu Nuhu, the New Patriotic Party(NPP) Parliamentary Candidate for the Sawla- Tuna- Kalba Constituency in the Savannah Region, has asked for Allah’s blessings for the Muslim community in the constituency as they celebrate Eid-ul-Adha.
He said Eid-ul-Adha in the Islamic calendar marked a very significant occasion, which emphasized the need for sacrifices to Allah and Humanity.
“I fervently pray that Allah Almighty grants each one of us the grace and encouragement to sacrifice all the worldly desires we have to follow his path as prescribed by the Holy Book (Quran),” he said.
Mr Banasco made the statement when he donated items and cash to the sick at the Sawla hospital including the Nakwabi children’s home on the day of marking the Islamic feast.
Mr Banasco said, “the Quranic account of Allah directing His servant (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son (Ishmael) is one that nobody should lose sight of in his or her daily life”.
“The substitution of Ishmael by God with a ram shows that our willingness to sacrifice will bring us the good we least expect.
This ought to be a guide to each of us as we celebrate this festival of sacrifice,” he said.
Mr Banasco, called on the citizenry of the constituency to work collectively to elect him as their Member of Parliament (MP) in the December 7, 2020, general elections, to bring the kind of development they need.
“I am optimistic that with our sacrifices and with Allah Almighty on our side, our constituency shall develop in leaps and bounds,” he said.
“As MP for the Sawla- Tuna- Kalba constituency , I assure you of my unflinching quest to improving the lot of my people as well as offer effective representation both within the House of Parliament and outside ,” he assured.
He entreated every citizenry to adhere to all mandatory COVID-19 safety protocols as he made a donation of sanitary items to the Sawla Senior High school and Tuna Senior High /Technical School in the constituency.
