‘Gov’t sabotaging efforts to resolve religious disputes’ – Peace Council

The National Peace Council is accusing government and the Ghana Education Service of sabotaging its efforts to resolve religious conflicts in schools.

The Council is currently investigating cases of religious discrimination in schools after last month’s protests by Muslims in the Western region.

However, the Council is angry over pronouncements by some government officials and a new directive from the Ghana Education Service for Muslims to attend morning assembly devotions.

Already, the Ghana Muslim Students Association has vowed to defy the directive.

Speaking to Starr News, the Director of Conflict Resolution and Management at the National Peace Council, George Amoh urged the various interest groups to allow the Council the room to deal with the matter.

“The situation has been there for some time now, let us allow the institutions to work.

“It is a big job, you need to go down and conduct surveys so you can get the idea on the ground from all sections of society.

“We need to allow the space so that we can get the full facts and recommend to the government a policy direction,” he stated.
