Handover National Cathedral project to churches – Christian Council to gov’t

The Christian Council of Ghana has urged the government to handover the construction of the National Cathedral to the church.

The general secretary of the Christian Council Rev Cyril Fayose argues this will avoid the unnecessary politicisation of the project.

The MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa had earlier petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate issues of conflict of interest surrounding the cathedral project.

Speaking in an interview, Fayose said the church is better positioned to manage and complete the national project.

“My understanding from the beginning is that it was the responsibility of the church to build this cathedral, except that along the line all things came into play, and we realised government was pumping a lot of money into it.

“My candid opinion at this point is that we should revert to the original idea of the churches building the house of God, I think we should revert to that idea and leave out the state,” he said.

“If it is a church project, it is not affected by changes in government,” he said. “So, we can take as long as possible to build this cathedral, and I believe the church in Ghana is so strong that we can build this cathedral.”
