Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Thursday, 27th June 2019 with the company of His Eminence, Sheikh Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, National Chief Imam of Ghana, and Most Rev. Charles Gabriel Palmer-Buckle, Metropolitan Archbishop of Cape Coast, joined H.E Dr. Muhammad Bin Abdul Karim Alissa, General Secretary of the Muslim World League, for a one-day international symposium themed “Religious Minorities – Rights and Obligations.”
The Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia submitted that the selection of Ghana to host the international event was not by accident but is a reflection of the real accomplishments we have made over the years as a country in advancing democracy and also fostering religious freedoms as well as religious acceptance and tolerance.
According to the Vice President the continuous acceptance and tolerance of each other’s religion and ethnicity symbolise a nation ready and willing to give peace a thriving environment to flourish. If indeed this is our chemistry and social architecture as a country then we must at all times commit to exhibit harmonious traits to one another.
He assured them that, the administration of H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will continue to implement social interventions geared toward ensuring inclusive development to ensure that all citizens especially minorities are not left behind.
