Host of Peace FM’s flagship programme “Kokrokoo”, Kwami Sefa Kayi has called on religious leaders in the country to let their voices be heard on the matter of government’s decision to establish a National Cathedral in the heart of capital, Accra.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on March 6, 2018 unveiled an architectural design for the construction of a National Cathedral.
The Cathedral is aimed at fostering national cohesion and creating an avenue for national prayers and religious events to be held as part of the Akufo-Addo’s heritage to the country.
There are however several controversies over the site for the Cathedral with government intending to demolish some buildings and properties to have the project at Ridge in Accra.
The National Cathedral is to sit around a 14-acre garden and will have chapels, a baptistery, a music school, an art gallery, a Bible Museum and Documentation Centre – It is expected to seat 5,000 people in its main auditorium.
According to Mr. Sefa Kayi, the Cathedral though a laudable initiative by the government, he has serious issues over its intended location.
He questioned why the government is not thinking about spreading its tentacles by constructing the Cathedral in another ideal place other than the capital.
