At the send off of the 175th-commemoration festivities of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church Ghana (EPCG) in Accra on Sunday, July 31, the VP of the republic of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, communicated his energy about how Ghanaians live calmly and that each and everybody is similarly acknowledged independent of race.
The Veep talking on the platform spread the word about it that despite the fact that he is known as a Christian, he was once an individual from the Methodist Boys Brigade as a result of his Christian mum, however he was similarly acknowledged into the gathering.
In his words he said:
We live in a society where a mother and some children could be Christians, and a father and some children could be Muslims. As a young boy at Sakasaka primary school in Tamale, I was born to a Methodist mother (then Susana Mariama) and a Muslim father.
“Growing up, I was an active member of the Methodist Boys’ Brigade until my mum changed to Islam. I suspect I am the only Muslim member of the Boys’ Brigade. Till date, out of my seventeen siblings, nine are Christians and eight are Muslims. That is the beauty of religious acceptance in Ghana. “
