We will Partner the Church in the Management of Schools, Health Institutions-John Mahama

Former President and Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has hinted that his administration will partner the Church in the management of schools and some institutions in the country.

He explained that the schools and hospitals owned by the mission houses (the church) more often than not do better than the public schools and health institutions.

He added that, that is a testament that the churches are better managers of the aforementioned institutions hence must be partnered in the management of those institutions.

Mr. Mahama gave the hint at a meeting with the Leadership of the Christian Ecumenical Councils in Accra on Monday (May 20, 2024).


“We will work together with you to create a meaningful and Prosperous lives for our congregation and our people”, the Former President stressed.

He revealed that his administration is going to increase the influence of Church in the management of schools and health institutions by appointing Church leaders into governing boards of those institutions in order to enhance the management and productivity of public schools and hospitals.

Mr. Mahama later expressed worry over the current government’s citing of schools and hospitals at places which already have such facilities, owned by the Church.

He described that as duplication of facilities, which resources he said could have been invested in the existing institutions and make them vibrant.

“Where we have mission schools or hospitals, we will not establish a rival institution. We will rather invest into the existing institutions”, Mr. Mahama emphasized.

Touching on the Economy, Mr. Mahama said the economy is in crisis caused by an administration “that has run out of ideas” maintaining that there must be an end to this decline of the economy.

The current debt of the country he said stood at 120 billion dollars in 2016 but now stands at 610 billion dollars.

He indicated that even though his government will face difficulties as a result of Akufo Addo/Bawumia’s management of the economy, with God and the support of the Church community, his 24hour economy [ which would help open up the economy and create jobs], will restore the economy and bring hope to Ghanaians.

The former President later appealed to the Church Community to take interest in issues of governance, justice, and fair play especially in the conduct of the EC, and speak against them.

“ We will continue to play our part but the Church must also raise red flags”, the former President appealed.

The Presiding Bishop of Action Chapel International, ArchBishop Nicholas Duncan Williams cautioned the EC to be diligent and fair in the discharge of its mandate stressing that ” if the anger of Ghanaians get to a certain limit, it is dangerous to be managed”.
