Award Winning Dancehall Artiste and Pibilii Naa(Chief) of Wa in the Upper West Region, Samini has revealed his stance on President Akufo-Addo’s Decision to Build a National Cathedral in the heart of Accra.
Speaking to Berla Mundi, he indicated that construction of the National Cathedral premeditated by President Akufo-Addo in 2020 is a misplaced priority.
“I’m a person that does not buy into the idea of building a national cathedral, it’s purely a misplaced priority..” Samini Spoke in an interview with Berla Mundo of TV3.
The National Cathedral of Ghana is a planned interdenominational Christian cathedral scheduled to be built in Accra, the nation’s capital, as part of Ghana’s 60th anniversary celebration. A 9-acre landscaped garden area next to Osu Cemetery will house the cathedral.
About 700 metres (765 yards) from Ghana’s Parliament sits one of the world’s most controversial craters, a hole surrounded by weeds into which $58m has already been sunk for the building of an interdenominational national cathedral.
“I made a pledge to almighty God that He was gracious enough to grant my party, the NPP, and I victory in the 2016 elections after two unsuccessful attempts, so I will help build a cathedral to his glory and honour,” Ghana’s President Akufo-Addo said at the sod-cutting ceremony in 2020.
“The interdenominational national cathedral will help unify the Christian community and thereby help promote national unity and social cohesion,” he said.
