He added that Ghanaians wants someone who will let their children go to school and be come a great people in future irrespective of the leaders religious beliefs.
According to Kwesi Pratt Jnr, some of the religious leaders should listen to their fellow religious leaders across the world and stop making “noise” in the country and follow the rules of the country. He used Pope as an example to them.
” What kind of mistake is this? If you’re a Christian or Muslim and so what? We have seen a lot of Christians and Muslims who are stealing from the nation. The state must take a lead in this development. The most important thing is to follow the law but what are we seeing today? We are seeing populism taken over us.
