On his part, Mustapha Abdul-Hamid, Chief Executive Officer of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), extended his thanks and appreciation to UAE’s institutions that were the reason for his inspiration and encouragement to establish ‘Education Ghana’ as a non-government organisation concerned with educating Muslims, especially in poor communities called in the local language “Zongo”.

He also pointed out that the only way for Muslims in Ghana to flourish is through education that enables them to actively participate in serving their country, developing their society, and contributing effectively to the progress of the Republic of Ghana, whose constitution gives full rights to all religions and sects to practice their rituals and express their beliefs in various forms.
