At a short ceremony to commission the two magnificent projects, the brothers Hassan Al- Karbi and Saad Al Quarni said they were moved to assist the school after one Alhaji Abdul Basit contacted them about the plight of the school.
They appealed to parents to make the education of their children a priority by investing in it and called on Muslims to unite and support each other.
“As Muslims, we should not always rely on the benevolence of others but we should unite, work hard and support each other“, they stressed.
The Headmaster of Saquafiyya JHS lauded the two brothers for coming to the aid of the school adding that though Government is doing its bit to assist the school, the benevolence of individuals and groups is needed to complement the efforts of Government.
A representative from the Municipal education Directorate Mr. Suleman Dawud also appealed to them and other benevolent organizations to help develop a project that was handed over to the Obuasi zongo Chief by the Muslim Workers Association, to be converted into a Vocational school and also appealed to the school authorities to make sure they protect the facilities to become useful in the future.
The Assembly member for Gauso East Electoral area Mr. Dauda Tahiru emphasized on the importance of education to the Muslim community.
