Alhaji Jawula, 4 others write to Peace Council over Wesley Girls Muslim students issue
Former Chief Director of the Ministry of Health and former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Lepowura Alhaji M.N.D. Jawula with support from other interested parties have written to the National Peace Council asking for update on the issue of violation of religious of Muslim students at the Wesley Girls Senior High School in Cape Coast.
In the letter dated September 27, 2021, addressed to the Chairman of the National Peace Council (NPC) and copied to the Minister of Education and 31 other institutions, they demanded an expedited process on the development of a subsidiary legislation on school faith practices aimed at addressing the issue of Muslim students being prevented from practicing their faith while in school.
Supporting Alhaji Jawula in the letter are two parents of some Muslim students in the school and two former students of the school who are all Muslims.
The concerned parents and Muslims said they also want broad stakeholder consultations on the subject in a bid to ensure national peace, harmony and security.
According to them, they expected a speedy resolution of the issue after the National Peace Council announced that it was intervening in the matter at Wesley Girls’ School earlier this year.
