Mr Ahene-Affoh said the ESR was determined to break the trend by seeking a proactive, sustainable approach and to promote peaceful co-existence with people of all faiths.

The interfaith dialogue was crowned with a forum on the topic: “Promoting interfaith dialogue - a clarion call to promote peaceful co-existence” and was chaired by the district minister of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, Madina, Rev. Michael Anim-Tete.
