Bawumia’s religious tolerance understanding is wonderful – Methodist Pastor praises Vice President.
The Vice President, accompanied by his wife, Samira, and other top government officials, accepted the Church’s invitation to attend its 31st Night Service.
When Very Reverend Benjamin Akwesi Ansong welcomed Dr. Bawumia to the Church, he expressed his respect for the Vice President’s awareness of religious tolerance.
“We have in our midst tonight Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and it is refreshing. This shows his understanding of religious tolerance,” the Methodist Pastor said, amidst cheers.
“This is a Christian gathering, but he has thought it wise to demonstrate his love and joy, which is in line with what the Bible preaches that, rejoice with those who are rejoicing.”
“So if today we Christians have gathered here to express our joy and the Vice President (a Muslim) has joined us, we have to be extremely grateful to God for what he has done for our country Ghana. It is something we must hold so firmly.”
“If God has touched his heart and he has joined us here, we are happy and we have to pray for him too as we pray, and also pray for His Excellency President Nana Akufo-Addo and the leadership of this country.”

Very Reverend Akwesi prayed for continued good leadership and prosperity for the Vice President, President Akufo-Addo, as well as the country.
