The construction of the national cathedral has already been a subject of debate over the past few years. Despite its criticisms, the government seem to be open about the amount of money that is been pushed into the project.
According to Captain Smart, a presenter at Onua FM, the government has spent 202 million cedis (2.2 trillion old cedis) on the construction so for. This has raised concerns as the current stage of construction seems not to be worth the amount spent.
Prophet kumchacha, the founder of Heaven's Gate Ministries, reacted with strong words and emphasized that he will never donate a penny to the construction of the National Cathedral. He did mention that our roads are bad and we need to expand them to save lives rather than focusing on the construction of the Cathedral. He used the Accra to Kumasi road as an example claiming that about 10 people die every week on that stretch of road. He added that our roads need proper lighting.
As a person who normally used that stretch of road, I can confirm that the road needs to be fixed as early as possible.
The Prophet went on to say that most of the pastors who support the construction of the Cathedral are already full in the belly.
We all know preconstruction activities can be very costive but is 202 million cedis worth what we see currently on the site? Let's know what you think.
