“He is a very special person. He is the National Chief Imam of the Republic of Ghana so I was sent by the National Executives to present these items to him because he is celebrating the birthday our Prophet Mohammed. As we all know I’m the Nasara coordinator and I represent the Muslim community and the settlers’ community in our country, so I’m here this afternoon to present these items to the founders of the Nasara and the National Chief Imam. I’m happy that this party has the love of Zongo at heart.
The former Hearts of Oak management member also reiterated the commitment of the Akufo-Addo led government to the development of sports.
Aziz averred that the construction of astro-turfs in all 275 constituencies in the country and the regional youth resource centres is an indication of the government’s commitment to sports development.

The one constituency, one astroturf and the one region, one youth resource initiative shows the president’s dedication sports. Sports is an essential part of the country and we want to develop it to the level where as a country we’ll start making monies from it”, Aziz said.
