The $450 million stalled National Cathedral Project under the Akufo-Addo-led administration is likely to be aborted by the next National Democratic Congress (NDC) under John Dramani Mahama.

According to the 2024 NDC flagbearer, his priority if he becomes President again is to
provided basic schools with textbooks and dusks to support teaching and learning.

“The President said that he pledged to God that if he won the election he would build a Cathedral for him. So it is his pledge and if he wants to build it, he must gather people who support that conviction to build that. And we were told that public funds were not going to be used for the Cathedral”.

“But eventually, we found that the Minister of Finance was releasing public taxes. We can’t use public funds including the funds of people of other denominations to build a Cathedral for Christians alone”,

“So far, 58 million dollars of public funds have been spent just to dig a deep hole and you have to ask yourself is it justified in this day and age when children don’t have desks in schools when children do not have textbooks?”, Mr. John Mahama made these remarks during a gathering with religious leaders in Wa as part of the “Building Ghana Tour” in the Upper West Region.

John Dramani Mahama has criticized the project while challenges in the education sector remain unaddressed, stating that it will not receive God’s approval.

The former President argues that the project, considered a personal commitment by President Nana Akufo-Addo to God, should be funded by individuals who align with its vision.

“For five years, we have not provided our basic schools with textbooks even though we have come out with a new curriculum because we say there is no money, and you say we should use 450 million dollars to build a Cathedral, even God will be angry with us,” the former President pointed out.
