Religion cannot be used to silence voices of dissent in any democracy – Prof. Gyampo

Academic administrator of Political Science at the University of Ghana, Legon, Professor Ransford Gyampo has advised against the utilization of religion to quietness contradict in Ghana's popularity based regulation.


As indicated by him, contradict is essential for the endurance of the country's multiparty majority rules system and advancement and in this way ought to be empowered.


He said, "Through valuable dispute (not criticism), traps of undertakings and legislative activities are uncovered for contemplation and change."


His remarks are in response to the attestation by the Presbyterian mediator, Rt. Fire up. Prof. Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante that the people who don't unequivocally uphold the public authority's Agenda 111 are witches.


As indicated by Prof. Gyampo, such an explanation from the Moderator was "totally unsuitable and undemocratic for adored individuals of God to capitalize on their strict leverage to endeavor to quiet contradiction."


He cautioned that should strict pioneers keep on towing that digression, "strict veneration might experience unnecessary sectarian and, all the more critically, cultural discourtesy. However, we don't need to arrive."


He, notwithstanding, urged priests to remark on open strategies and governmental issues yet in a way not to smother contradict.


"We as a whole can't be compelled to think the same. Society disintegrates the day contradict is expelled. In this way, let the public authority be centered around what it needs to do and allow the people who to need to disagree, uninhibitedly do as such. Ought to there be shrewdness in disagree, it should be accepted. Ought to there be nothing reasonable in contradict, it ought to stay as dispute in the soul of majority rule government," he finished up.
