The government of Ghana is appealing to Ghanaians to support the construction of the National Cathedral with a GHC100 monthly contribution dubbed Ketoa Biaa Nsua.
In a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Starrfmonline, finance minister, Ken Ofori-Atta said the objective was to get about a million Ghanaians contributing towards the construction of the religious edifice.
Making the announcement during the reading of the mid-year budget review on July 29, 2021, Ofori-Atta said the Cathedral is expected to be commissioned on March 6, 2024.
“Work on the National Cathedral is progressing speedily and following the program of the contractor. The National Cathedral is expected to be officially commissioned on March 6, 2024. Upon completion, the National Cathedral will provide a space for formal religious activities of state and symbolize the enormous contribution of faith to nation-building.”
He went on “this state and church partnership envisaged by the president to develop the National Cathedral is on course. An initiative; the GHC100 a month also dubbed “Ketoa Biaa Nsua” will be launched by the trustees of the National Cathedral on August 12, 2021, to give as many Ghanaians as possible the opportunity to be part of the history of the National Cathedral.”
He detailed “the aim of the club is to raise one million Ghanaians who would give GHC100 a month for the construction of the national cathedral.”
“A special shortcode 979 has been developed for this purpose as we look forward to Mr speaker and all the members of this august house join in the GHc100 per month.”
Meanwhile, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said he will not be surprised if the Electoral Commission goes ahead to conduct the by-election.
He said the EC, together with the government, and the judiciary could collude whilst the case was still in court.
Asiedu Nketia, according to a Starr FM report, stated that the NDC will stop at nothing to ensure the verdict of the Cape Coast High court in relation to the dual citizenship case of the Assin North MP is overturned.
