Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a Member of Parliament for North Tongu, has stated that a future National Democratic Congress (NDC) government will conduct a scientific survey on the National Cathedral project to gauge public opinion on whether or not the project is necessary before deciding whether or not to proceed with it.
The North Tongu MP while speaking on TV3 on Tuesday, June 21, 2022, stated that “The National Democratic Congress, as our name implies, is a national party. We are democrats. We will go to the people and ask for their position. There will be a scientific way of hearing from the people and doing what pleases the people. Fortunately for our country, the majority are Christians, more than 70 per cent. We will go to them and ask them what should be our marching orders”.
He furthered that “the president has sprung this huge surprise on us and it has become such a major financial burden. What it has destroyed in its wake, all of these demolitions, now we are looking for loans and we are all over the place. What the NDC will do is to go back to the people for the people to decide on what is to be done.”
While chastising President Akufo-Addo over the project, Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, stated that it is a shame that the National Cathedral project, which is being built in the name of the Lord, has been tainted by dishonesty and a disdain for the law.
He said “We are unravelling a lot of mysteries. It’s been a shame that a project [National cathedral] that is done in the name of the Holy Lord has been immersed in all these deception and blatant disregard of our laws”
