Ace Broadcast Journalist and author of ‘Beyond Fatherhood: Changing The Narrative’, DC Kwame Kwakye has presented his 2023/24 Media Personality Award to the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Nuhu Sharubutu.
The Fatherhood Advocate hinted that this is a show of his appreciation and the enormity of respect he has for the National Chief Imam. In a brief ceremony held on Thursday, 8th February 2024 at the personal reception of Dr. Sharubutu at his Fadama Residence, the author narrated, “Last year after a successful book launch, I presented a copy to The National Chief Imam as a father of all Muslims in Ghana and to also receive his blessings”.
“Early this year in January, EZone Media Network crowned me the 2023/24 Media Personality for Central Region. I felt obliged to present the award to the Chief Imam to express my gratitude for his kindness and prayers which I believe is part of my elevation” DC Kwakye emphasised.
According to the author, he is highly indebted to Iddi Iddrisu (his tailor whom he has known for close to 2 decades) and Alhaji Baba Commenda (a relative to the Chief Imam) for their immense support thus far.
Sheik Nuhu Sharubutu thanked him for the honour done him by presenting his award to him adding that his gesture is highly commendable and he is glad to witness this day. He prayed for him invoking God’s blessings, favour, and guidance for him and highlighting that God should cause everything he touches from this day forward to be a blessing to him and others.
The elder wife of Dr. Sharubutu, Hajiya Umma Amarya upon being briefed about our mission while leaving the official ceremony, also prayed fervently for DC Kwame Kwakye, presented them a gift and thanked him for honouring them. DC Kwame Kwakye was accompanied by Alhaji Baba Commenda.
