President John Mahama says his government is not against the decision by the various religious groups in the country to work together to find an amicable resolution to the raging debate over religious rights in mission schools

Accordingly, the President said he has directed the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) to work with the National Peace Council to resolve the simmering impasse.

Speaking at the 58th Independence Day celebration in Accra, Mr Mahama said the development is worrying and must be immediately addressed.

“Government is not averse to the use of inter-faith channels and dialogue to resolve any disagreements amongst our different faith groups.

“Our diversity must be a source of strength, not a weakness. Our diversity should be harnessed for the realisation of our national interest.

“Each and every one of us, in our ethnic and cultural diversity, contributes in a unique way to make our nation great and strong,” he stated.

The President’s comments follow press statements and counter-statements issued by various Christian and Muslim groups over the debate.
