The Vice President of the Republic, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has appealed to Ghanaians to continue to live in harmony for the development of the nation in spite of religious differences.
Inaugurating an ultra-modern auditorium for The Maker’s House Chapel International in Accra, on Sunday 8th December 2019, Dr. Bawumia said Ghanaians should not take the peaceful co-existence between people of different faiths, especially Muslims and Christians for granted.
The Vice President stated that Ghana is very blessed to have a harmonious existence between people of different faiths. We should, therefore, focus on our similarities rather than our differences, he admonished.
“Christians and Muslims all believe in the same God (the God of Abraham, Moses, David etc.); believe that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary; believe that Jesus performed miracles such as raising the dead, giving sight to the blind, curing lepers etc.; believe that Jesus Christ will return to earth before the end of the world to defeat the Antichrist and save the world.” Dr. Bawumia indicated.
Continuing, Dr. Bawumia said: “In the spirit of national peace and cohesion, I urge persons of all religious persuasions to continue to live in harmony and contribute their quota to Ghana’s development”
“I commend Dr. Michael Boadi Nyamekye, General Overseer of The Maker’s House Chapel International for his exemplary leadership over the years, which has culminated in the construction of this magnificent edifice,” Dr. Bawumia added.
The Vice President was the Special Guest of honour at the opening of the new church building by the Makers House Chapel International near the Ghana Atomic Energy School near Dome in Accra.
