||Hon. Stephen Asamoah Boateng meets the Christian Council of Ghana||

HON. and CCG Chairman


The Minister for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Hon. Stephen Asamoah Boateng has indicated that his Ministry is working to institute a religious policy that will help streamline activities of the religious bodies and maintain sanity in the system.

He noted that a draft policy has been put in place by his predecessors; Hon. Kofi Dzamesi and Hon. Ebenezer Kojo Kum hence he will work on finalizing it in consultation with key stakeholders of the religious bodies to ensure a concrete document is brought out for the good of Ghana.

The Minister gave this assurance when he paid a courtesy call on the Christian Council of Ghana at their Annual General Meeting on Wednesday, 19th April 2023 in Accra to officially introduce himself as the new Minister for the Sector, listen to them and to seek their support to enable him work efficiently and effectively as their sector Minister.

Hon. Asamoah Boateng stated that he believes in prayer so he does not step out without committing himself to God as spirituality gives focus and purpose therefore a person without it does not have focus as a person must have a believe in something.

Responding to a plea from the Council, he mentioned that his outfit will have a discussion with the Ministry of Education so that the religious bodies with mission schools can exert some discipline over their schools.

For his part, the Chairman of the Christian Council of Ghana, Prof J.O.Y. Mante called on the Minister to support the council to check immorality in the mission schools and among young girls as this attitude was disturbing for the younger generation.

He expressed the Council’s excitement to have the Minister show interest in their activities and pledged their full support behind him in all endeavours. They prayed for the Minister, sung with him and committed his work to God so he can succeed.
