Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, who is also the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has encouraged Ghanaians of various faiths and religions to peacefully coexist for the sake of national cohesion.

Speaking to clergy members in the Northern Region, Dr. Bawumia expressed his confidence and comfort in associating with Christians, citing this as a virtue emphasized by the Holy Prophet Mohammed.

“I don’t think that being a true Muslim means that you cannot get close to Christians. I don’t see how being a true Christian, you cannot get close to Muslims

“Prophet Mohammed said to the Muslims that of all the religions and faiths of this world, Muslims should get closer to the Christians. That is what the Prophet Mohammed said and so I am very much comfortable and confident in getting close to Christians. My brothers and sister are Christians and I cannot say that I will not get close to them.”

The NPP’s flagbearer emphasized the importance of promoting peaceful coexistence among different faiths in Ghana.

He highlighted that this harmony helps prevent the entry and activities of jihadists, who may seek to exploit disagreements between believers of different faiths and religions.

“There are many people who are uncomfortable with us [Muslims] getting closer [to Christians] and that is how jihadists and all of the extremists benefit. We are a peaceful country and we always get closer and so let us keep it that way.”
