The proposed construction of a national Cathedral continues to face stiff opposition not only by members of the public, but some minister of the gospel.
The recent minister who has added his voice to the call on the nation to boycott the construction of the edifice is the minister in in charge of the Gomoa Achiase branch of the African Faith Tabernacle Church, Pastor David Annan who has described the construction of the proposed national Cathedral by the government as a misplaced national priority.
He argued that such a facility is going to bring disunity among members of the Clergy will have access to it at the detriment of others and not unity as suggested by some though it would be built with the taxpayers money.
Speaking at the sidelines of a church service over the weekend, Pastor Annan hinted that the country is faced with serious economic challenges, including deficit in infrastructural development such as bad roads, unavailability of health facilities, dilapidated school buildings among others, and wondered why the resources for the construction of the Cathedral should not channeled into the provision of such facilities.
He has therefore called on the government and all proposing the construction of the Cathedral to give a second thought to the proposal.
