Rev Dr Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana (CCG) on Friday called for an interfaith dialogue between the various religions to ensure tolerance in the country.

“We have reached a point where we must project humanity and not the religion we belong to,” he said.

Rev Opuni-Frimpong made the call when he led a four- member delegation from the CCG to pay a courtesy call on the management of Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Accra.

The members of the delegation include Reverend Daniel Sakitey, Ecumenical Relations Officer, Mrs Dinah Mankwa, Director of Finance and Administration and Mr Leonard Ackon, Administrative Secretary.

Rev Opuni-Frimpong emphasised the need for Ghanaians to use religion as a tool to facilitate development rather than to divide the people.

He said there are religious excesses, which must not be allowed to go, hence the need to sanitise the media to curtail the situation.

He noted that it is not only political tolerance that must be managed but the religious tensions as well.

Rev Opuni-Frimpong expressed the need for the building of confidence among the various religions, adding that the Christian Council intends to play a significant role in this direction.
