Location for National Cathedral is perfect, its funding refreshing —Gabby Otchere-Darko
A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko believes that government’s decision to build a National Cathedral “is a great one.”
According to Otchere-Darko, the location of the cathedral is “perfect” and its source of funding “refreshing.”
In a Facebook post Tuesday, Otchere-Darko said the cathedral “must be built” and that the judges who are currently occupying bungalows at the designated location for the cathedral “will be housed and even more .”
The government to build a national cathedral has received divergent views from the public.
While some are fiercely criticizing the government for initiating the idea because they think it is needless and wasteful, others have also commended the government for the decision.
His readers don't appear to agree with him at all.
Lawyer Kwaku Azar jabs if Gabby insists no amount of counselling would change anything, asking if it is a matter of 'Yentie Obia?'
For Kafu Kofi Tsikata, Gabby's post 'Sounds like the great dead goat syndrome...'
Felix Terry Norvinyo Ziga also rejoinds with: We are demolishing structures to build National cathedral while our kids still learn under trees. Who is misleading our President.
Felix returns with additional commentary thus: Apart from the land that's valued as $40 millions dollars, we have key important instructions like.
1. Passport Office
2. Greater Accra regional Minister's residence
3. Judicial training institute
4. National Scholarships Secretariat
5. Eight (8) residential bungalow of Judges
6.AITI-KACE (Advance Information Technology Institute- Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence)
7.Ministry of Communications Building
8. Ghana Maritime Authority building
9. And a whole lot of key institutional buildings
Putting the value of all these institutions together, I think our president is doing OPPOSITE of the promised of protecting the public purse.
