As part of the company’s Cooperate Social Responsibility (CSR), Afro-Arab Group of Companies, under the leadership of Alhaji Salamu Amadu, will distribute about four thousand hand sanitizers to Zongo communities to help combat the spread of the virus.
The donation, according to the Chairman of the Group, Alhaji Salamu Amadu, is also to create awareness and education on steps to take to help curb the spread of the virus.
Distribution of the hand sanitizers will start from the Nima, Mamoobi and Mallam Atta markets, and then it will move to other zongo communities in the country.
“Afro-Arab Group’s ideology is to help the needy and the time is now for us to support the President’s directives to prevent the deadly COVID- 19 virus from attacking us,” said Alhaji Salamu Amadu.
“Afro-Arab Group under my supervision will continue to support the government and the President Nana Addo by giving our small quota as citizens so that it won’t get out of hands,” Alhaji Salamu Amadu added.
Alhaji Salamu also commended President Akufo-Addo and the National Chief Imam Of Ghana His Eminence Sheikh Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharabutu for their efforts and plans to propagate awareness message across the country.
The President has announced measures by his government, including tightening of Ghanaian borders, travel ban as well as suspension of public gathering, including religious services at mosques and churches.
Following the President’s directive, the National Chuef Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu held a press conference and asked Ghanaian Muslims to adhere strictly to the President’s directives.
Subsequently, a press release by the National Chief Imam, issued in consultation with heads of the various Islamic sects, suspended all congregational prayers, including Friday prayers at mosques.
The statement asked all Muslims to pray at home until further notice.
