ANC Identifies with Muslims during Ramadan


The opposition Alternative National Congress (ANC) on Monday donated several assorted items to Muslims worshiping at three mosques in Monrovia.

The party donated praying mats, teakettles and several bags of rice to Muslims at the Benson and Gurley Streets, and the Airfield mosques.

At the separate presentations, ANC Coordinator for Montserrado County, Baseh F. Cooper, said the ANC decided to identify with the Muslims as they end the Holy Month of Ramadan.

He stressed the need for unity among Muslims and Christians, and asked Muslims to continually pray for peace and unity in Liberia.

ANC Vice-Chair for Mobilization and Recruitment, Musu Sanoe, lauded the Muslims for their continued prayers and fasting for the country as the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has now turned the sector to their Liberian counterparts.

Madam Sanoe said it is necessary for religious people to pray for the sustenance of peace in the country as Liberians now oversee the security of their country.

Sanoe, also a Muslim, suggested that the party does not discriminate along tribal and religious lines.

Imams Abraham Kamara and Sheikh Abu Baker Sumamoro, of the Benson and Gurley Street mosques (respectively), received the items on behalf of the Muslims. They lauded the party for identifying with them during the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan. They assured that the items would be used for the intended purposes.

The ANC is headed by businessman turned politician Alexander B. Cummings.
