Stop politics of religion, Peace Council and faith-based organisations urge Ghanaians

The National Peace Council (NPC) and its key partners; Christian Council of Ghana, Office of the National Chief Imam and Catholic Bishops Conference of Ghana, have called for an end to the politics of religion.

The four organisations said they had observed with great concern some insinuations and publications on electronic and social media platforms, seeking to inflame religious passion into the 2024 Election.

“As the national institution responsible for peace in the country, the NPC and our partners wish to remind all Ghanaians of the admirable manner by which we have lived together in peace, despite our religious, political and ethnic diversity,” the statement said.

“We have a duty as a people to continue to coexist and tolerate our diversity. Article 21(1) (c) of the 1992 Constitution of the Republic of Ghana recognises and protects the right of all persons to freely practice any religion, and to manifest such practice,” it added.
