In the midst of a legal challenge over whether it breaches our secular constitution or not, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo continues to associate himself unabashedly to the construction of the new national cathedral.
The President recently cut the sod for the construction of a new, interdenominational National Cathedral.
The Christian Council of Ghana paid a courtesy call on the President and whilst interacting with them, he revealed why he was pushing for the construction of the cathedral.
“It is a project that is very dear to my heart, and I’m hoping that together we will be able to realise it.” said the President.
“No matter how long it takes, I think at least we have to begin, because I think it is a good idea and it inures to the ultimate benefit of all of us,”
With the CPP’s James Kwabena Bonfeh suing over government’s involvement in the project, on the grounds that Ghana is a secular state which doesn’t permit the government to meddle in religious affairs – it seems the President is not concerned at all about the suit, as he continues to explicitly support the project.
