“As I have said before, the National Cathedral will not just be another monument adorning the skyline of Accra, it will be a rallying point for the entire Christian community to come together and worship… I am therefore committed to working with the Board of Trustees to ensure the completion of this project to the glory of God.”

The National Cathedral project has seen a lot of controversies, as many Ghanaians continue to question the prudence of the state financing an edifice that is said to be President Akufo-Addo’s personal pledge to God.

But President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been unwavering in his resolve to build the National Cathedral in Ghana.

In the 2023 budget, GH¢80 million was allocated to fund the project despite the current economic crisis.

However, Parliament voted against the approval of budget estimates of GH¢80 million for the construction of the National Cathedral for 2023.

Meanwhile, the National Cathedral Secretariat has made a passionate appeal to churches and the Christian community to help complete the National Cathedral project.

The Secretariat said with a contribution of GH₵100 monthly from one million Christians, the project could be completed before the year 2024.

Speaking after President Akufo-Addo paid a working visit to the construction site, Executive Director of the National Cathedral Secretariat, Dr Paul Opoku Mensah said the church must encourage its members to contribute.

“If the Church Leaders stand with us on this project, we can easily raise One million people who will give us GH¢100 each. So essentially, we need the Church to stand with us. The state has done enough, all the preparatory works have been done, and the scope of work has been done. Without the state, it was impossible.”

“We need the Church in Ghana to stand with us, this is a monument to the Church, this is a monument to God and a symbol of the Christian presence in Ghana.”

The $450 million National Cathedral project was envisioned by the government in March 2017 as a physical embodiment of national unity, harmony, and spirituality.

The inter-denominational cathedral is expected to have an auditorium capable of seating 5,000 people, as well as chapels, and a baptistery.

NPP’s Have Caused Hardship In Ghana – Kennedy Agyapong

Published

Kennedy Agyapong

New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful, Kennedy Agyapong, claims that the current administration made mistakes that contributed to the economic hardship Ghanaians are currently experiencing.

The repercussions of COVID-19 and the Russia-Ukraine crisis, which are destroying economies all across the world, were not entirely ignored by him.

“I always say that if we had a vote today in the entire world, 80% of the sitting governments would lose because the population cannot take the misery everywhere, making every government unpopular,” he stated.

But he holds the opinion that several policies and programs were carried out incorrectly, which also contributed to the country’s difficulties.

I’ll also add that, in hindsight, there are some things we did wrong that, in my opinion, would have prevented the current state of the economy.

He vehemently criticized the money wasted on NABCO, saying that it might have instead been used to establish companies and hire kids instead of the three-year program that ended and left graduates who were enrolled jobless once more.

About 100,000 youngsters were engaged by NABCO at GHC700 per month, or GHC700 million. For these young men, we could have created enterprises with 700 million. Although there won’t be 100,000 people employed, “young men and women could find employment because of the sustainability,” he claimed.

He said that despite the NPP’s errors, it is important to “fight propaganda by the NDC because a same thing happened with President Kufour when the first six to seven years he did marvelously well and the world crude oil prices went up, transportation, food, Ghanaians could not forgive the NPP.”

He claims that the competence of the current leadership, which is led by Haruna Iddrisu, has nothing to do with the most recent changes in parliament.

The National Organizer said, “going into 2024, we thought about going with a new face. When you decide to go with a new face, definitely some people will be affected. Not because they are not better, not because they have problems with people, but because all those in Parliament deserve the appointment. So our decision is just because we need a new face in Parliament going into the 2024 elections”.

On whether Ato Forson was appointed because he has an economic and finance background, he said “it’s one of the justifications, but that is not all”.

Joseph Yamin believes that with the number of years Ato Forson has been in Parliament, he will perform.

The North Tongu Mp said this while praising the Board of Trustees for agreeing to a statutory audit by Deloitte, giving indication to cooperate with the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), and requesting a parliamentary probe into the construction of the cathedral.

“The power of the people has triggered quite some positive actions from the National Cathedral Board of Trustees;

It’s obvious the suspended project will remain suspended until independent audits and various probes are concluded;

Glad they will fully cooperate with the CHRAJ investigations following my petition;

The Deloitte audit must be made public when completed…

Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng AKA Kwabena Adu Gyamfi must be made to resign from the Board of Trustees without further delay—this would be in his own interest, particularly, having regard for the additional exposés in the pipeline;

The Board of Trustees’ request for a parliamentary probe is most welcome, and I do hope Right Honourable Speaker Bagbin would approve our motion demanding an enquiry into the entire scandal-dominated cathedral project as submitted to his office last year…,”Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa wrote.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has accused Rev Kusi Boateng of corruption, fraud, double identity and self-dealing. He put out some documents as evidence for his accusations.

Rev Kusi Boateng in response said that the accusations are part of the hurdles he has to cross as one who is rising and engaged in worthwhile activities.
