A day never goes by without Ghanaians suffering the heart ache of watching the government’s mischief. The Chaos surrounding the National Cathedral seems unending and despite the strong resistance from the citizens, the president is more resolute than ever to waste the country’s resources.
Fuel prices are skyrocketing and the most innovative idea this government can come up with is to build a national cathedral to beg God to add more crude oil to our land?
The president while speaking at the 19th Plenary Assembly of the Symposium of Episcopal Conferences of Africa and Madagascar (SECAM) said that all over the world, people are turning to their faith hence the national cathedral will be something Ghanaian Christians can look up to in difficulties.
According to the man who promised to build one factory in every district, the best time to build a church is now. He compared Ghana to countries like France, Italy and the United States with cathedrals.
While addressing his audience, the president told his critics that he will build the cathedral no matter the time and cost involved.
“My personal view has always been that even though the Cathedral will be very much a national institution, the cost should be largely borne by the Christian community, with the state providing the land and initial funding to get the project off the ground.” He said
“It will serve as a collective thanksgiving to the Almighty for the blessings He has bestowed on Ghana sparing the nation of ravages of civil war that have bedevilled the histories of virtually all neighbours, and the outbreak of mass epidemics.
“Looking through the history of all the great cathedrals of the world, there has never been what can be called an appropriate time to build a cathedral. Invariably, it has taken many years, sometimes centuries, to complete,” the President added.
