Dr. Prempeh said he would continue to consult with the Muslim community in the area to fashion out development projects.
‘’As your humble servant, I will always be in touch with you as partners in development so that we can together build Manhyia South to the level it deserves,’’ he said.
‘’The occasion of the Eid al-Adha, may his compassionate Allah accept your sacrifice and offer peace, live and unity. Celebrate in moderation and care,’’ he added.
