Well-known fetish priest, Nana Kwaku Bonsam, has made a case for idol worshipers to be given a land at the Asomdwee Park to establish a national shrine.
Kwaku Bonsam rejected the establishment of a national cathedral by President Akufo-Addo. According to him the cathedral just serves the purpose of Ghana's large Christian fraternity at the neglect of idol worshipers and traditionalists.
Kwaku Bonsam believes the choice for the Asomdwee Park is to aid traditionalists to connect to their sea gods.
“We make a passionate appeal to President Akufo Addo, to give us a land where late President Mills was buried, the Asomdwee Park will be a perfect location for us to build our National Shrine. That will be a strategic location for our shrine, we need a place very close to the sea so that we can be dealing frequently with Maame Water [Mermaid], to aid us in our spiritual exercises. We earnestly hope that our appeal to the President for the land will be granted,” he stated.
The NPP government led by President Akufo-Addo has proposed the of the construction of a national cathedral for Ghana.
The cathedral, when finally completed, will serve as a worship place for Christians during special events. This move has sparked debates among some well-meaning Ghanaians. While others believe the construction would be a total waste of money, others believe it is a good course.
The latest to wade into this controversy is a self-styled man of God, Reindolph Oduro Gyebi, popularly known as Eagle Prophet.
According to him, God is the one directing the president to go ahead with the construction because Ghana has been built on "forces of darkness". He went on to say that whoever fights against or opposes the construction of the cathedral is calling curses to himself and his entire generation.
