Do You Feel Deceived After Hearing The National Cathedral Is Now Funded By Taxpayers Monies? – Prof Gyampo
Prof. Ransford Gyampo, A Political Science lecturer at the University of Ghana, has quizzed men of God in the country on whether they feel deceived after hearing Akufo-Addo is using taxpayers’ money for the building of the National Cathedral, a promise he (the President) personally made to God.
In a post shared on his Official Facebook page on Wednesday, June 8 while tagging Arch Bishop Duncan Williams’ statement in 2019 where he said, “I don’t see why people should fight national cathedral project when it’s not funded by taxpayers money.”
His comment follows the Deputy Minister for Finance, Dr John Kumah who said that the Cathedral is a Government of Ghana project; not the churches.
The government released a grant of GH¢25 million to the National Cathedral Secretariat as additional seed money for the ongoing construction of the National Cathedral.
A letter, signed by the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, to the Controller and Accountant’s General, directed that the money be credited to Ribade Limited, for part payment of outstanding claims.
