The Vice President and Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party for the 2024 general elections, has called for a collaboration with faith-based organizations to inculcate the right values and attitude in the younger generation for national development.

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia asserted that development in many countries is based values stressing if you have the wrong, no matter how much money you put into development, it wouldn’t work.

Dr Bawumia believes a closer a partnership with the Church and other faith-based organizations and the government will change the narrative.

The NPP flagbearer made the call when he addressed Religious leaders in Tamale on Thursday (16th May, 2024) as part of his campaign tour of the northern region.

Dr Bawumia stated that the Church and faith-based organizations over the years have played critical role in the development of Ghana.

“The Church and the faith-based organizations do a lot of work. You look at schools, hospitals. How many development partners can point to these sort of institutions that they have actually built in those quantities?

“So when we’re looking for development partners, we always make the mistake by thinking that our development partners are the foreigners but our development partners are really the ones here, who are developing the country everyday, who and building the schools, hospitals, the universities, caring for the sick and the needy everyday” he emphasized.
