Located at the Airport Residential area of Accra, near the Nyaho Clinic, the Alhajj Banda Mosque is one of the newer Muslim structures built in the overwhelmingly non-Muslim residential areas of the city of Accra—a possible sign of new wealth and mobility in the country. Alhajj Banda himself is a wealthy businessman and active promoter of the Muslim community since the mid-1950s. He is patron of the Islamic Education Fund.
