The central regional deputy Youth organiser for the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)Mr Bright Botchway has described the ruling government led by President Akuffo-Addo as the most insensitive administration in the political history of Ghana.
According to him, the president breaking all odds to build cathedral for the country is entirely needless while the citizens are wallowing in hardship.
He reiterated that, the development under the very watch of the heartless Akuffo-Addo and his inept government has given birth to untold Hardship in the country.
” Instead of using such huge money allocated for the building of the supposed National Cathedral to help with the construction of roads, schools and hospitals in the country , he rather see such uncalculated move as a means of rescuing the country which is inimical to the progress of Ghana”
He further said, President Akuffo-Addo who is so bent in constructing a cathedral for mother Ghana is utterly a slap in the face of suffering Ghanaians. multisim download free
Mr Botchway apostrophed that, the misuse of scarce resources on the avoidable creature comforts of the president must be condemned because it is an unpardonable show of disrespect and insensitivity to the predicament of the suffering masses to build cathedral.
‘Using such huge money which alone Constituted an unconscionable waste of the country’s money which could be channelled to change lives through creation of jobs”
He added that, the resources entrusted into the hands of President Akuffo-Addo must be used judiciously for the public good, not for the excessive comfort of Nana Addo and his cabals”
If the building of the cathedral is avoided, paramount money could be saved to address some of the pressing issues in the country.
He explained” Country like Cote D’voire spent close to 600$Million to build the Basilica Our Lady of Peace Catholic church which is a minor basilica built and dedicated to Our Lady of Peace in Yamoussoukro, the administrative of capital of Côte d’Ivoire. , even after building this in cote d’voire Civil War erupted thus it is not about the cathedral that President Akuffo-Addo will build which will speed up the economy fortunes of the country but rather we need Good managers to steer the affairs of this country and not cathedral builders”
He cleared the doubts that,Ghanaians should know that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is not against the building of the Cathedral but rather against the illegality perpetuated by the government in procurement and the u turn of the president by using state funds to to erect to his own political promise to God is very preposterous.
“Ivory coast spent close to $600million to build the basilica and that triggered a lot of tension in the country due to hardships and unemployment in the country push them into civil war”
