The deputy minister of Finance, who also doubles as the Member of Parliament for Ejisu Constituency, Hon. John Kumah has boldly sent a strong message to Ghanaians concerning the huge amount of money the government has attributed to the National Cathedral in these times of hardship.
According to a memo released by the finance ministry, the Akufo-Addo government has attributed 25 million cedis to the construction of the National Cathedral in these times of economic hardships. Hon. Okudzeto Ablakwa and the NDC have complained bitterly about the situation.
Meanwhile, John Kumah while speaking in an interview with Evans Mensah on Joy News revealed that the National Cathedral will bring in more revenue in a few years after its completion. He revealed that even though, the country is in economic hardships, the government still has to satisfy its commitments and that includes the cathedral.
” The National Cathedral will bring in a lot of money in the first few years after its completion. You will be surprised it will bring an amount that can even pay for all the costs incurred in building it because it will serve as a tourist site. Ghanaians should understand us. We are in economic hardships now but that doesn’t mean the government should satisfy its commitments and National Cathedral is part of those commitments.” John Kumah boldly revealed this on Joy FM in an interview with Evans Mensah.
