Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has singled out religious tolerance as the pivot around which Ghana’s enduring peace revolves.

According to him, peace is fundamental to human existence; without it, life would lack meaning, leading to perpetual strife.

Dr Bawumia stressed that the universal desire for peace transcends religious differences.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer said this when he spoke as a Special Guest of Honour at the Miracle Arena for All Nations in Canada.

“Ghana is a beautiful country. Even if I say so, and if you haven’t visited I ask you to visit, I ask you to visit is very interested in Ghana. We are the most peaceful country in West Africa. The most peaceful of course, one of the most peaceful countries on the whole continent of Africa. And if you look at the foundations of our peace in Ghana, and have looked at it very carefully over the years, at the heart of the peace is religious tolerance, religious tolerance, interfaith coexistence and tolerance.
