Speaking at the graduation of Trinity College in Accra Saturday, the President said the move will restore discipline, hard work and integrity that has characterized the church.



President Nana Akufo-Addo is promising to give back control of missions schools in the country to the churches.

Speaking at the graduation of Trinity College in Accra Saturday, the President said the move will restore discipline, hard work, and integrity that has characterized the church

"The tradition of discipline, hard work, and integrity that characterized the churches...are needed in our country," he said.
"That is why my government is keen on restoring more control back to the churches over the missionary schools,” he added, drawing applause from his audience.

In May this year, the Minister of  Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh hinted of government’s commitment to return the management of mission schools to religious bodies.

He explained that the return of the schools to the various religious bodies is a 2016 New Patriotic Party (NPP) manifesto pledge which they will do their best to fulfill.
Even though he did not give a timeline, Dr. Opoku Prempeh said a contract will be signed between the government and religious bodies to formalize the hand-over.
He explained that the nature of the return is going to be a similar one used in the health sector where mission hospitals remain under the control of churches and mosques.
The state will still pay salaries of teachers in mission schools just as it pays that of doctors and nurses in mission hospitals.
The Christian Council of Ghana has been advocating for the reversal of a 1984 take-over of their schools set up during colonial rule to provide Christian education.
Most Christian leaders express worry at the deterioration of discipline and moral values in the mission schools which they see as their legacy.
