From Samuel Agbewode
A Philanthropist and Businessman at Anfoeta-Woademaxe in the Ho West District, Mr. Samuel Kofi Danku, has commended the members of the Muslim community in the area for their continuous efforts to promote the spiritual wellbeing of their people and peace over the years, which has made the district one of the peaceful areas in the region.
Mr. Danku explained that as a businessman and a philanthropist, he cherished the conduct of the muslim communities in the area, which have peacefully coexisted with other religious faithful over the years, hence his decision to appreciate their contributions as they celebrate Ed Fitir, and urged them to pray for peace at all times.
The philanthropist, whose activities in the district have earned him the nickname “Development Ambassador”, made the commendation when he presented food items, including bags of rice, a cow, cooking oil and soft drinks, to support the Muslims in their celebration at Kpedze.
Mr. Danku explained that he was motivated to give freely to support the Muslims in their celebration, because offering such support has become part of his life, and asked not to hesitate in making their needs known to him, for he would help them address such development challenges to make life a little more comfortable for them.
The philanthropist is also noted for the construction of roads, providing modern places of convenience to end open defecation, and financial support for small-scale business persons at Awudome-Tsito, Avenue, Bokorvikope, Tsibu and Abutia, as part of his contribution to the development of the district.
Receiving the items, the Chief Imam at Kpedze-Zongo, Alhaji Mohammed Ahmed Tanko, thanked Mr. Danku for the gesture, saying the support was timely and would be put to good use during the celebration, stressing that Allah would bless him and all those who gave the necessary assistance to them to mark the occasion.
Alhaji Ahmed Tanko said the Muslim communities in the district need support, but their priority was to improve the facilities of the only Arabic school in the district at Kpedze, and appealed to Mr. Danku to consider providing the school with additional classroom blocks to ease congestion in the existing classrooms.
