The visit, which was in part a return gesture to the Chief Imam who had earlier visited the bank, also had the bank making a donation to the Imam.
Items donated included 10 bags of rice, cooking oil and an amount of GH¢5,000.

The Managing Director of Sahel Sahara Bank, Mr Adama Diop, described the visit as a great opportunity for management of the bank to be at the residence of the Chief Imam.

“Sahel Sahara Bank (BSIC, Ghana Ltd) is honoured to be received by you today,” Mr Diop noted.

Ramadan fast

He explained that the bank was taking advantage of the Ramadan fast to pay a visit to the Chief Imam to ask for his prayers and blessing for the bank.

“Since you came to pray for our bank, our results have changed and we are improving. I ask again for prayers for our bank and the country as a whole,” Mr Diop said.
The Chief Imam commended the bank and assured Mr Diop and the entire management of the bank that he would remember the bank in his prayers always.

The bank also made similar donations across the country in the various Muslim communities where they were operating. The communities included Tamale, Alabar in Kumasi, Nima and Madina, both in Accra.

In another development, Sheikh Sharubutu has called on Ghanaians to support waste management companies in their quest to keep the country clean, reports Zainabu Issah.

The Chief Imam made the call after a clean-up exercises at Fadama, Mamobi and Nima in Accra last Thursday.

The exercise, organised by Zoomlion Ghana Limited, were to help pave the way for the celebration of the Eid-ul-Fitr celebration by the Muslims in those communities.
Workers of the company swept, cleared choked drains and collected heaps of rubbish in the communities.

Religious obligation

Sheikh Sharubutu said keeping one’s environment clean was not just a national call but also a religious obligation as enshrined in the Quran and urged all Muslims to exhibit the essence of Ramadan, which involves forgiveness and change, in all their endeavours.

“There should be a change in our social, economic, religious and more especially our attitude towards the way we litter our environment,” he said.

He thanked the workers of Zoomlion Ghana Limited for their support before, during and after the month of Ramadan, adding, “The level of dedication with which the staff of Zoomlion execute their duty is very positive.”

The National Chief Imam used the platform to wish every Muslim in the country a happy Eid-ul-Fitr.

Support for Muslims

The Communications Manager of Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Mr Robert Coleman, congratulated all Muslims in the country on onsuccessfully completing the 30-day fast.

He said the clean-up exercises in the communities formed part of activities lined up to support Muslims during the month of Ramadan and called on the Muslims to support waste management companies as environmental sanitation was a shared responsibility.

The Chief of Fadama, Alhaji Redone Abass, called on the residents of his area to not dump waste into drains as it was one of the major causes of flooding whenever it rained.
