Nobody can tell us the use of a national cathedral other than to give thanks to God for blessings the ordinary Ghanaian can’t feel but Joe Mettle claims it is just as important as anything else.
The gospel singer justifies the construction of a national cathedral in a country where people are left to die in the streets like dogs because of lack of hospital beds by claiming a cathedral is just as important as any other piece of infrastructure.
As to what the tangible benefits of the cathedral are which can rival that of a hospital, Mettle didn’t say.
Speaking on Class Fm, Mettle said whilst hospitals are important, the Cathedral is just as important as well.
“The argument was the fact that if we are doing the cathedral while we have other social responsibilities or other issues like hospitals and other things, they all need to be built, the hospitals are very important, the cathedral needs to be built, they need to be built,” he said.
“It’s important, but at the same time we should look at all of it, we can’t do one and leave the other, if we can do all, that’s it.” he added.
If you’re rich and do not have to deal with Korle-Bu wahala, I can see how you can have such a mindset.
