The debate of whether or not Ghana needs an interdenominational national cathedral continue to divide opinions in the country.
Ghana’s finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta in a recent radio interview opined that the criticism against the project is unfair and unjustifiable.
He said Ghana is a Christian nation and must show appreciation to God for his mercies and blessings upon the land.
Mr. Ofori-Atta said government will not hesitate in going ahead to provide a land for the construction of the national cathedral.
“It is a beautiful thing and it is a memorial to God. This huge country God has given us, we taking a small 3 acres for God and we are crying. It is hard,” he said.
The finance minister’s comment has generated mixed reactions, with some Ghanaians on social media saying ‘God does not a cathedral’.
Below are some of the comments from Ghanaians;
Doreen seems to suggest the hearts of Ghanaians are full of sin
Kwame supports the cuilding of the national cathedral
Mampae wants God to grant politicians knowledge
Billy says God will not judge Ghana on whether we built a cathedral for him or not

According to a yet-to-be-released book authored by investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni, the NDC flagbearer wanted to resign because of the constant frustration from some presidential staffers and ministers in the Atta-Mills administration.
