Some pastors in the Ahafo Region led by the Chairman of Association of Churches and Resident Pastor of the Kukuom Methodist Church, Very Rev. John Peprah, on the 21st day of Ramadan 2019, Sunday, 26 May 2019, joined Ghana’s Vice-President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, to the central mosque for prayers.
While at the Ahafo Region, as part of his Ramadan tour, Dr Bawumia visited the chiefs, people and Muslim faithful, specifically in Kukuom, Goaso and Duayaw Nkwanta.
Dr Bawumia also paid homage to Osahene Kwaku Aterkyi II (Paramount Chief of Kukuom), Nana Kwasi Bosomprah I (Paramount Chief of Goaso), and Nana Boakye Tromo III (Paramount Chief of Duayaw Nkwanta).
The vice-president described the accompaniment of the Christian leaders to the mosque as “gratifying”, adding that: “It signifies the unique peace, religious tolerance and harmonious traits we possess as a country. We cherish this and must protect the peace and unity we enjoy.”
Dr Bawumia himself has visited various churches to worship with them since he became vice-president.
