Some Cleric Say They Can Even Build The Cathedral For $50 million - Legal Practitioner Martin Kpebu

The brouhaha surrounding the building of the National Cathedral continues.

The cost of building what will become a National asset when completed still bothers the minds of many Ghanaians.

This back and forth issue has created a divided opinion among many not just only the literates but also the layman on the street too.

Following this, private legal practitioner, Mr. Martin Kpebu has asked the government to take a second look into the cost involving the construction of the National Cathedral at a time that the country is trying to survive in this hard period.

Mr. Kpebu asserts that as claimed by some clergy-men that the cost of the Cathedral could be $50 million which is less than the proposed amount stated by government.

He’s of the view that it should be reconsidered by government if the cost is purported to be less.

The legal brainer explained on JoyNews’ Tv show, “ News File”, he said, “I understand some clerics say they can even build the Cathedral for $50 million. Why is the National Cathedral Secretariat Project not given to those clerics who say they can,” he asked.

Meanwhile, the National Cathedral Secretariat announced a new estimated cost of $350 million for the project’s construction. This is an increase from the initial estimate of $250 million.

Mr. Martin feels a lot can be done about the cathedral in other to get value for our money.
