Ghana Needs To Protect Pension Funds, Not Build Nat’l Cathedral: Sam George Declares



Samuel Nartey George, the Ningo Prampram member of parliament, has restated his stance on the National Cathedral project, saying that at this time, the nation does not require it.

Speaking on the Sunrise program on 3FM on Wednesday, December 28, he remarked

When the Church wants to build a Cathedral, we will build it.”

Moreover, he added “What we are building is a multi-purpose building and not a National Cathedral. What this country needs today is the protection of our pension funds and not a National Cathedral.”

Meanwhile, Parliament rejected the contentious GHS80 million allocated for the National Cathedral’s development.

As a result, the money/funds was directed toward the communication and road sectors to achieve this.

Prior to that, Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, the ranking member of the joint committee for trade, industry, and tourism, dedicated to Ghanaians on Tuesday, December 20, a Minority voting decision to reject the budget estimates for building the National Cathedral as recorded in the 2023 budget statement.

He claimed that because earlier funding for the project had not been properly accounted for, the judgment was a triumph for all Ghanaians.

Therefore, the GH80 million budget for the project’s continuation was rejected by a vote of 11 Minority MPs to 10 Majority MPs.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, who happens to be the North Tongu member of parliament, also commented on this development iterating:

Government compelled to withdraw and reallocate the obnoxious and dubious GHS80million for President Akufo-Addo’s Cathedral to the Roads and Communications sectors.

“We won this battle for God and the suffering masses. Thank you all for your unflinching support.”
