The Afrikania Mission in Ghana says it does not make economic sense for the government to demolish official residence of some judges at Ridge in Accra to make way for the building of the National Cathedral.
The Mission said it is satisfied with the building of the national edifice, but destroying already built buildings to make way for that is what they are against.
The Head of the Afrikania Mission in Ghana, His Holiness Osofo Komfo Atsu Kove, in an interview with Accra based Neat FM which was monitored by PrimeNewsGhana suggested that government should rather concentrate on lands in Kasoa for such initiative, instead of demolishing official residence of judges.
“Ghana needs schools, hospitals, and factories to create jobs for our youth, not a National Cathedral. Building a National Cathedral instead of schools for our children who are having classes under trees is just ridiculous and an insult to the intelligence of the black race”, he explained.
His Holiness Atsu Kove said “why should they even demolish judges’ residence to build a cathedral. It doesn’t make sense Even if they want to do something like that; they should consider doing it at Kasoa or even Prampram because that’s where we have vast lands”.
He described the initiative as alien to the African culture, adding, it is important for leaders in the country to get their priorities straight.
