The issue of the government building a national cathedral has been a topic deliberated on by many Ghanaians. While the NPP government believes it will serve as a national tourist site and bring jobs to Ghanaians, other opposition parties and some people of other faiths believe it is insensitive for the government to consider such a project using state resources when Ghanaians are suffering during this economic crisis era.
Companies are folding because of high taxes, yet we are using taxpayers' money to build the cathedral.
The MP for Kwadaso, Dr. Kingsley Nyarko, an invited guest on the MTV Good Morning Ghana talk show, has opined his views concerning the cathedral project. Dr. Kingsley says, he sees nothing wrong with government decisions in using tax payers' money and state resources to build the cathedral.
He went on to say, Why can the government doing something in God's honor be a problem when Ghanaians keep saying by God's grace in their speeches. Ghanaians are empathetically connected to God, so it shouldn't be a worry to build a structure befitting of God. Even the first line of our national anthem says "God bless our homeland Ghana."
This was captured on MTV's Twitter page.
He said: "The first line in our anthem is' God bless our homeland Ghana'." Ghanaians have an affinity that draws us closer to our creator, so any attempt to construct a fitting edifice for Him should not be considered a big deal.
