The Minister of Religious Affairs and Chieftaincy, Kofi Dzamesi has stated that government is prepared to aid Christians who will be going on a pilgrimage in Israel.

After the piloting of the programme last year, the Minister said the government is ready to continue with it.

Dzamesi said, "Last year this [Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs] Ministry facilitated a pilot pilgrimage to the state of Israel, which in our view was largely successful and very beneficial, confirming in the large measure the importance of pilgrimage in the life of a Christian".

However the move has angered some section of Ghanaians who called it as unnecesary.

Thus, he added “this [Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs] Ministry intends to facilitate another pilgrimage to the state of Israel but on a much broader scale and within manageable limit.”
