Even God will be angry with us; $450m on Cathedral is unnecessary – Mahama to Akufo-Addo

Former President John Dramani Mahama, the 2024 flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has areas of strength for disapproval of the allocation of $450 million for the National Cathedral project.

During a gathering with religious leaders in Wa as a feature of the "Building Ghana Tour," Mahama censured the prioritization of the house of prayer over squeezing difficulties in the schooling area. Mahama scrutinized the utilization of public assets for the house of God, accentuating that President Nana Akufo-Addo's own obligation to God ought to be financed by people who share the task's vision."

The President said that he made a vow to God that assuming he won the political decision he would construct a Church building for him. So it is his own vow and to construct it, he should accumulate individuals who support that conviction to fabricate that and we were informed that public assets wouldn't be utilized for the House of God," former president John Dramani Mahama stated.He featured the inconsistency between the public authority's vow not to involve public assets for the basilica and the disclosure that public assessments were being used."

Yet, ultimately, we observed that the Minister of Finance was delivering public charges. We can't utilize public assets including the assets of individuals of different sections to fabricate a Basilica for Christians alone", he added. "Up to this point, 58 million bucks of public assets have been spent just to dig a profound opening and you need to ask yourself is it legitimized these days when kids don't have work areas in schools when kids don't have reading material?" The previous President, dismayed by the $58 million spent on digging an opening for the house of prayer, brought up the absence of work areas and course books in schools.

He contended that diverting the assets toward training, given the public authority's significant costs on consultancy administrations for the basilica, would be a more sensible utilization of assets.

Mahama finished up, "For a considerable length of time, we have not furnished our fundamental schools with course books despite the fact that we have emerged with another educational program since we say there is no cash, and you say we ought to utilize 450 million bucks to construct a House of prayer, even God will be irate with us."
