National Cathedral : May God forgive you - Ghanaians told

The agenda to build a National Cathedral - a National Non-denominational Christian Worship Centre, in Ghana has triggered so much controversy with Ghanaians divided over whether it is needful or not in the face of the various infrastructural challenges the nation is confronted with.

The strongly held opinion of many is that Ghanaians should not be burdened with the execution of a project the President of the Republic admits to have been a promise he personally made to God to honour, should he emerge victor of the 2016 presidential contest.

Plans are far advanced in respect of the project - site secured and a considerable amount of funds generated.

This has however suffered heavy critiques - bashings from a section of the Ghanaian population with some suggesting that such efforts could have redirected towards other relevant projects which could help lessen the cost of living burden and resultantly improve our standard of living.

Mean while, Apostle Opoku Onyinah, the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral appears to worried over the criticisms against the construction of the edifice.

According to him, he always prays for God to forgive the critics.

This is because he believes they do not know what they are doing and do not have adequate understanding of the citadel for God.

“We don’t have to speak against our leaders or insult them because we don’t agree with them on something. So I always pray that God forgives the critics of the National Cathedral,” he stated.

He made these remarks on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen, adding that some Ghanaians have assessed the construction of the cathedral from political perspectives which should not have been so.

“We must eschew politics in the discussion of the National Cathedral. We are too partisan in our lives as a people,” he cautioned.

Apostle Onyinah however believes that the critics of the project would eventually get to appreciate the relevance of the cathedral once it is completed.
