The regional executive Secretary of the Brong Ahafo regional peace council, Alhaji Suallah Abdalla Quandah, has called on the general public to be tolerant in dealing with one another, regardless of our ethnic background, creed or political affiliation.

Speaking on the issue of tolerance, he expressed satisfaction about how far the country has come, in creating  tolerant conditions in the religious landscape in the nation.

"In an event where both Christian prayers and Muslim prayers are said concurrently at national programs, it signifies that we have improved in national tolerance" Alhaji Abdalla said.

Sharing his opinion on the issue of tolerance, executive director of Global Media Foundation, Mr. Raphael Godlove Ahenu urged politicians and stakeholders in the society to allow institutions to deal with individuals and groups who display intolerant behavior in the society by purging themselves from such unscrupulous and primitive lifestyle.

"Politicians, traditional leaders and heads of institutions can only condemn this barbaric act if they abstain from it themselves. Persons who surfer any form of discrimination and intolerance should be empowered to name and shame the culprits to sanitizethe system" Mr. Ahenu said.



They were sharing their ideas on the backdrop of International day of tolerance Day which was celebrated yesterday. The International Day for Tolerance is an annual observance declared by UNESCO in 1995 to generate public awareness of the dangers of intolerance. It is observed on 16 November.
