The Chief Imam, Dr. Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharabutu has once again lauded Mr Joseph Siaw Agyepong, the Executive Chairman of Zoomlion and the Jospong Group of Companies for the successes they are chalking in the waste management and sanitation industry in Ghana in particular and on the African Continent.

He said Jospong’s faith and commitment to serving humanity was a direct reflection of his faith and commitment to the Almighty Allah which was the citadel of his successes.

Dr Sharabutu said this when Mr Agyepong and top management members of the Jospong Group joined him on Friday at the late Imam Abass Memorial Central Mosque at Fadama in Accra to give thanks to Allah for His mercies on Jospong as part of activities to climax the group’s one-week annual thanksgiving service.

In attendance were the Minister of State in the Office of the Vice President and MP for Madina, Mr Boniface Sadique, former MP for Kasoa and aide to former President John Dramani Mahama, Mr Abu Sadat Lami and the Municipal Chief Executive Officer of Ayawaso North, Mr Mohammed Aminu Zakari among others.

A Christian service had earlier taken place at the Nmai Djorn Head Office of Zoomlion which was graced by former President Jerry John Rawlings, the Majority and Minority Leaders of Parliament, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu and Mr Haruna Iddrisu respectively, ministers and deputy ministers, traditional leaders and the clergy.

The Chief Imam prayed for God’s continuous blessings on the Jospong Group and urged Mr Agyepong to continue to have faith in Allah for His mercies and lauded the founder of Zoomlion Ghana Limited for joining them in prayers.

Dr Sharabutu expressed appreciation for Zoomlion’s recent four-day clean up exercise at Fadama and its environs as part of the thanksgiving exercise. He said Jospong’s ability to develop business opportunities that resulted in the creation of several jobs and his resolve against discrimination of people due to their religious and tribal orientations in employment of the youth of Ghana was a trade mark he should continue to preserve for generations to benefit.

Mr Agyepong on his part expressed gratitude to the Chief Imam for his unrelenting prayers for him, the business conglomerate and perpetual counsel he provides to him at any point in time.

He said “your entrenched position to stand by us in prayers during good and bad times is indicative of the fact that you are a father for all and we at the Jospong Group will continue to collaborate with the Islamic Community in the country to ensure that the country benefits from our endeavours.”

On his part, Mr Boniface Abubakari Sadique commended Mr Agyepong for his enormous contribution to the development of Ghana in particular and Africa as a whole. He indicated that the group’s companies running in Serra Leone, Liberia, Angola, Togo and other African countries were raising the image of Ghana abroad.
