Nature has a unique phenomenon of rewarding those who very honestly and sincerely devote their God given capabilities for the uplift of humanity. Some times such reward is given materially, some times high respect, dignity and honor is bestowed and some times with extreme satisfaction of inner conscience. Dr A Wahab Adam, Head of Ahmadiyya Muslim Mission Ghana is also one such special person on this planet, who in spite of in his seventies looks, dashes like a young tiger and never misses a chance to accept any challenge aimed to up lift humanity. How his honest and sincere intent to uplift humanity has been rewarded one can see on the reverse side of his visit card which already is decorated with eight such distinctions and UN has now added another distinction to his credentials. Recently he has been selected for an assignment by UNDP, a UN Agency based in Accra. The assignment is known as UN human security program steering committee member for a period of two years. In this new assignment he will be representing the National Peace Council of Ghana on that Committee. His new assignment will include food security, job creation, empowerment of women, opportunities for education, health care and the enjoyment of the basic freedoms and human rights guaranteed by the UN charter.
Four places in three regions of Ghana have been selected for this particular program. The towns involved are Yendi, Bawku, Tamale and Wa. These towns are in 3 regions in the northern part of Ghana. The task of the steering committee is to advise and ensure that the basic freedoms and rights that enhance peace in any given area are enjoyed in the regions. On behalf of the Muslim Times congratulation to Dr Wahab Adam and special prayers for his success in new assignment.
