What was the feedback from God when you promised to build him a cathedral? – Prof Frimpong-Boateng questions Akufo-Addo

Prof. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng and President Akufo-Addo

A former appointee of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Prof. Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng, has questioned his insistence on injecting public funds into constructing a national cathedral.

Among other concerns, the former Minister for Environment, Technology, Science and Innovation said the president, having promised to construct a cathedral to honour God, should have ensured that he had God’s blessing in prayer response before going on with the project.

“David promised but God said don’t do it. So when he [president Akufo-Addo] promised, what was the feedback from God? I mean, in our case…

“The president is a very important person. If he says I am going to do this, and I am going to use it for God, there is a reason why he should do that. But my question is, what was the feedback from God? What did he hear from God that maybe go ahead of otherwise?” he questioned.

Ghana’s construction of a National Cathedral has been shrouded in controversy over prioritisation, financing and alleged procurement breaches.

Some leading clergy members appointed board members to oversee the project resigned.

According to critics of the project, it is rather wrong for the president to personally promise to receive dedicated state resources at the expense of pressing national issues.

In his interview with Joynews, Professor Kwabena Frimpong-Boateng echoed similar sentiments, saying, “…the originators of the idea that they wanted to build a cathedral for God, what did God tell them; that they should go ahead or not? That is my first question. And the fact that now people like Dr Mensa Otabil and Dag Heward Mills are backing out of that project tells me that there was something wrong. And also where we are now, spending so much money, and there is a big gap or hole there [at the construction site], tells me a lot.”

    The war has displaced more than 85 per cent of Gaza’s population. Stand for humanity and help those who need you most.

    More than 2 million people, including 1.7 million Palestine Refugees, are paying the devastating price of the escalation in the Gaza Strip.

    Civilians are dying while the world watches. Airstrikes continue. Families are being displaced en masse. Lifesaving supplies are running out. Humanitarian access is still denied.

    Amid these circumstances, hundreds of thousands of displaced people are sheltering inside UNRWA schools. Thousands of our humanitarian workers are there to deliver aid, but food, water, and other essential items will soon be depleted.

    UNRWA is calling for immediate access to humanitarian aid and urgent funding for food and non-food items for Palestine Refugees in need.

    This moment calls for action. Let’s stand united for humanity and bring much-needed relief to those who need it most.

    You can donate by sending cryptocurrency to the below wallet addresses. No donation is too small. All funds received will be used to buy humanitarian aid for the people of Palestine.

    After two years since the full-scale invasion of Ukraine, at least 6 million people have fled Ukraine to escape the conflict and another 5 million people are internally displaced.

    Leaving behind their homes, jobs and loved ones, Ukrainians urgently need shelter, food and water. More than 17 million people, almost half the population, require humanitarian aid.

    Life for the people of Ukraine has completely changed. Fighting and indiscriminate bombing has killed families and destroyed houses, schools and hospitals. Millions in displacement centres and damaged homes face temperatures below -20C.

    An estimated 1.4 million houses have been damaged by the war, and it is mostly older people and people with disabilities who remain behind in homes with leaking roofs, broken windows and no access to heating.

    Your generous contributions to our Ukraine Humanitarian Crisis Appeal helped over 140,000 vulnerable women, men and children access vital aid including food, water, shelter and counselling support.

    Thanks to you, our local partners are helping people to rebuild their lives after experiencing trauma, losing loved ones, homes and livelihoods.

    We have also responded quickly through the Caritas network – which CAFOD is a member of – to provide shelter, food and safe spaces for families who have lost everything.

    The humanitarian professionals and volunteers working on your behalf live locally and are from the communities that you are supporting. Many have been displaced by the war themselves. They understand people’s specific needs: from food and water, to shelter and clothing, to medical, psychological, and spiritual support. No two people are the same, no two crises are the same.

    Thanks to your kind donations and support, we have delivered vital assistance to over 120,000 mothers, children and elderly people since the first months of the conflict. We are part of a Caritas response that has reached over 2 million refugees and internally-displaced people. By working together we are making a difference to the lives of those in greatest need.

    When the emergency needs of families affected by the Ukraine conflict have been met and international attention turns to other crises, we are committed to be there in the long-term, to ensure that the communities you are helping can rebuild and heal.

    How will my donation help?
    More than 17 million people, almost half the current population of Ukraine, are now in need of humanitarian aid. With your help, we can keep supporting the increasing number of families who are in desperate need.

    Your donation will help local experts in Ukraine to keep providing:

    – food, water, and hygiene items

    – shelter and clothing

    – healthcare

    – education

    – counselling and group therapy.

    Please show your support for Ukraine by donating to the below cryptocurrency wallet addresses. No donation is too small. All funds received will be used to buy humanitarian aid for the people of Ukraine. Unfortunately, we are currently not accepting bank payments as we are looking for a new banking partner.
