In an exclusive interview with this writer, he disclosed that the foundation is an organisation which is geared towards alleviating the sufferings of the people and creating a conducive atmosphere for the people to live in.

He maintained that on his return from the USA, he opened a security agency (Quest Security Agency) and provided employment for a lot of youths. As a son of the Chiefdom with very good relationship with residents there he has been engaged in several humanitarian works.

He disclosed that knowing the problems of the community, his foundation donated 100 bags of cement to the Biriwa-Limba Chiefdom central mosque and another 35 bags of cement for the fencing of the Agricultural Business Centre in the Chiefdom. He maintained that the residents are mainly farmers and most often suffer from pests attacks on their farms, therefore to alleviate their suffering and the challenges faced by the Public Health Units in the 9 sections, he has donated 175 fumigation machines to the farmers and 12 PHUs across the 9 sections to help combat those pests and give the farmers better yield.

The machines, he stressed, are multi-purpose and can be used to combat pests in the PHUs as well. In order to help school going pupils and their parents the foundation also gave 300 scholarships to youths who had taken their WASCE but were unable make the required grades and another 300 scholarships to pursue diploma courses to prepare them for the University.   

Alpha Sheriff aka APC Sheriff further disclosed that the foundation also donated assorted medical materials worth over Le60 million to the PHUs. Having done so much for the chiefdom, the visibly delighted residents of the 9 sections vowed to vote him in as their MP.

The son of the soil disclosed that he has excellent relationship with his people and his name has now become a household name in the chiefdom. He referred all enquiries about his relationship with the communities to the people of the chiefdom as a sign of confidence and trust bestowed on him by the people.
