‘What will be the use of the National Cathedral if Ghanaians die of hunger?’ – Ablakwa boldly asks Akufo Addo

President Akufo Addo’s choice to prioritize the construction of a National Cathedral over other, more pressing requirements has been questioned by Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, MP for North Tongu Constituency.
According to papers received by North Tongu MP, President Akufo-Addo approved the payment of GHS32 million in public funds to Sir David Adjaye & Associates Ltd for advisory services on the National Cathedral project in 2021.

According to a Facebook post by an NDC Parliamentarian who claimed the financing was done behind members’ backs, GHS57 million has apparently been spent on the project thus far.

In an interview with TV3’s Key Points broadcast on Saturday, June 4, 2022, an Egyptian parliamentarian argued that public funds should be utilized to support individuals in need.

People would die of starvation and floods, according to the North Tongu MP, if President Akufo-Addo completes the National Cathedral as a personal vow to God.

“What good is the Cathedral if people starve to death or are displaced by a flood?” There are more serious matters for the administration to address. Our NSS and NASCO members are in pain. That is what the government should be focusing on, according to Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.

Dalex Finance’s Joe Jackson, who works as the company’s Director of Operations, made a similar request on the same forum, echoing Ablakwa’s allegation.
