President Akufo-Addo has stated that in fulfilment of the New Patriotic Party’s 2016 Manifesto, government will strengthen it’s relationship between with the faith based schools.
President Akufo-Addo stressed that “nobody can forget the role faith based schools have played in the development of our educational structure, and, if ever there was a time when the partnership between the State and the faith-based should be strong, this is the time for that.”
President Akufo-Addo made this known on Sunday, 8th October, 2017, the 3rd day of his tour of the Northern Region, when he worshipped with congregants at the Tishigu Anglican Church, in Tamale.
It is our hope that, in the period of our mandate, we will give more and more responsibilities to the faith-based schools to guide their products, so that the moralities and values associated with Christianity, religious worship, belief in God, integrity and honesty, are inculcated in our young people, when they are needed. We are going to reverse the paradigm shift and go back to the old arrangement.”
President Akufo-Addo stated that “I needed your prayers to get there, and I need even more your prayers to stay there and do a good job for all of us.”
He urged them to pray for him and his government so “that we will look up and look at the Almighty and give off our heart and energy, and give our country a good government that will help lift the people of Ghana up.”
