The Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, has taken a swipe at government for been the cause of the ongoing brouhaha at Wesley Girls Senior High school which has resulted in Christians and Muslims taking sides.
According to the veteran journalist, instead of government putting in measures to give the citizens a good living condition, the aim of the Akufo-Addo led administration is to pump money into a Cathedral for Christians hence recent clashes between the two main religious bodies in the country.
“Instead of thinking of how to solve Ghana problems, your topmost priority is to build a Cathedral for Christians. Why won’t Muslims feel bad when their children are being frustrated in Chirsitian schools.”
Making his submissions on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show this morning, Man Pratt revealed that fasting in schools should not be a concern to school authorities resulting in a national debate and for that peace has to prevail amongst Christians and Muslims.
The Wesley Girls High School has over the last few days been in the news for the refusal of school authorities to allow Muslim students to observe the Ramadan fast.
For the first time since this brouhaha with the school authorities, the Methodist Church and the Islam community, President Akufo-Addo has spoken.
President Akufo-Addo said schools should not be a a place to settle religious scores.
“The schools have evolved and adapted their practices to suit the times and I would urge that we do not turn them into the place to fight ideological battles,” he said.
While speaking at this year’s Eid ul-Fitr celebration at the premises of GBC, Akufo-Addo said the government is working with all relevant stakeholders to address the issue.
