A plea by the Ghana government
The government of Ghana has been appealing to Ghanaians to support the construction of the National Cathedral with a GHC100 monthly contribution dubbed Ketoa Biaa Nsua.
In a previous report by YEN.com.gh, 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.
Meanwhile, KSM is not the only celebrity who found a problem with this.
