In a short ceremony at his Fadama residence, Monday, August 7, 2023, DC Kwame Kwakye thanked the National Chief Imam for accepting him into his home and for accepting a copy of his book.
“The book is on Fatherhood and as the father of the Islamic community, I deemed it fit and proper to present to you a copy. I’m here through the help of Alhaji Baba Commenda to receive your prayers and any other support to push the fatherhood agenda far in helping to enlighten fathers for generational transformation”, the Fatherhood Advocate indicated.
According to DC Kwame Kwakye, fatherhood in general has been a mixed bag of issues. Most fathers have not been up to the task and the time has come for him to help in changing that narrative, hence seeking the help of Sheik Nuhu Shaributu in pushing his message across to the Islamic world.
Dr Osman Nuhu Sharubutu expressed his elation for the honour done to him by the Author. He expressed his gratitude for the honour done him by bringing him a copy of the book. He prayed for the bounteous blessings of Allah to be on the author and encouraged him to keep up with the good work he has started.
