Some People Have Misinformed The Chief Imam About The Genesis Of That Project - Kevin Taylor

The office of the Ghana National Chief Imam has heeded the President's call and has donated GHC 50,000 towards the construction of the National Cathedral.

An outspoken Ghanaian investigative journalist, Kevin Ekow Baido Taylor, reacting to the donation made by the Chief Imam, said that he believes somebody in the Chief Imam's office has misinformed him about the genesis of the National Cathedral.

According to Kevin Taylor, he doesn't know those managing the National Chief Imam's office and the people around him who convinced him to think that the National Cathedral belongs to Ghanaians which is not true.

He said that he was listening to the National Chief Imam very attentively, and he could see that the Chief Imam was happy because when the national mosque was built in Ghana, the Christians supported and commissioned it, but he should have been told that when the mosque was being built, no national property was destroyed. 

No taxpayer's property was destroyed for the construction of that mosque, no Ghanaian was asked to contribute towards the construction of that mosque, and there are documents are available to show where all the funds came from.

He indicated that some people misinformed the National Chief Imam about the genesis of the national cathedral. He has been made to believe that the national cathedral is being built the same way the national mosque was built.

"Chief Imam, the national cathedral belongs the President Akufo Addo, and the houses he pulled down for it to be constructed were built with your taxes. So, if someone has misinformed you that the national cathedral belongs to all of us, it's a lie."

Kevin Taylor stated that if the Chief Imam knew the genesis of the national cathedral, as a leader of the Islamic religion in Ghana, he will never donate that money towards its building because this cathedral is somebody's business.

"I have a feeling that there are some politicians in the Chief Imam's office twisting the fact and making the Chief Imam believe that the national cathedral being constructed belongs to all Ghanaians. So, he thinks he is doing the right thing, but somebody is misinforming him about that project, and I suspect that Aremeyaw guy."

He added that the National Mosque was built to honor God, it wasn't built for an individual, unlike the National Cathedral, which is a personal pledge of President Akufo Addo.
