The NPP government must have a stake in the yet to be built National Cathedral because they are hell-bent on getting it through despite immense opposition from the people, including many Christians who see many other issues in the country meriting much more attention than a National Cathedral.
The President has reiterated that he is going to ensure that the Cathedral is built and whether Ghanaians like the idea or not, that is his ‘back case’.
The issue of the Cathedral has generated immense public backlash against the government, not just for the idea of building it but for the bald-faced lie that no taxpayer money would be utilized in its construction.
Despite that, the so-called ‘listening’ NPP government has refused to back down and the President has reiterated his commitment to the project.
Speaking Sunday at a ceremony to climax the 125th anniversary of the Catholic Archdiocese of Accra at the Black Star Square, the President, said he is going to fulfil all his campaign promises and he is going to build a National Cathedral ‘through Christ who strengthens’ him.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me…by the Grace of God and through Christ who strengths me and my government, all the programmes and policies being rolled out which were once described as overly ambitious and not feasible by some, whether it is the free Senior High School, Planting For Food and Jobs, One District One Factory, One Village, One Dam, and the development of Rail and Road Infrastructure, amongst others will be implemented for the benefit of the Ghanaian people,” he said.
“And through Christ who strengths us, the National Cathedral will be built to the Glory and Honour of God, Amen”. the President added.
