Help us build Akufo-Addo’s national cathedral – Bawumia begs Church

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has said the construction of the national cathedral, to which he said he has made a personal donation, “is a very important thing for Ghana.”

At a meeting with the clergy as part of his tour of the Greater Accra Region on Tuesday, 4 June 2024, the New Patriotic Party flagbearer said: “The Church has to come together and meet the government so that we talk about the way forward.”

He added: “The Church must come together and let the government know the best way forward on how we can get private resources to help us complete the national cathedral”.

The Vice President believes “if we all come together, we will figure it out because we cannot leave it where it is.”

The stalled 5,000-seater edifice is meant to be President Nana Akufo-Addo’s show of gratitude to God for making him leader of the nation.

The project has, however, been bedevilled by allegations of corruption and malfeasance.

At the meeting, the Presiding Apostle and General Overseer of Freedom Chapel International Ministry, Mr Francis Amoako-Attah, urged the Vice President to do whatever he could to ensure the project came to fruition.

“Your Excellency, maybe prophetically, the reason why that hole is still there is because God wants you to fulfil it,” adding: “It’s going to be so prophetic that once upon a time, a temple was built and the president who dedicated a temple for the Christians was a Muslim.”

Apostle Amoako-Attah encouraged the Vice President to do “everything within your power, together with the team, to bring the church and the government together,” suggesting: “Give it to a private man; let them build it. Let them collect the money.”

In his view, “It’s going to be an indictment for Christianity and for this government to leave this bigger hole as it is forever.”

“I’m so happy now that we have found somebody who is bringing the church into governance,” he added.
