A former Presidential Staffer under John Mahama’s administration and current Member of Parliament for the people of Ningo Prampram, Sam George, has vehemently stated on national television that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s soon to be built National Cathedral is a misplaced priority.
The MP was one of the panelists on Saturdays edition of TV3’s Newday program. Sam George said that he does not see any reason why we are spending tax payers money on an institution that has refused to pay taxes for the development of this country since Adam.
He further stated that even if the National Cathedral was going to be built by the Christian Council he still feels it is not right at this moment because the church as a body does not have money sitting somewhere and that it is the same many poor Christians in our society that are going to cough-up money for the building of the structure.
The MP also refuted claims that the National Cathedral was an initiative of the Christian council but rather a promise made by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to honour the Christian Community in honour of Ghana’s 60th Independence Celebration.
