We Don’t Need a Cathedral to go to Heaven – Dr. Minta Nyarku States

Member of Parliament for Cape North Constituency, Dr. Kwamena Minta Nyarku has observed that the building of the National Cathedral is unnecessary and not a priority.

According to him, building a cathedral isn’t synonymous to us being religious. “Religion is a divine conception of the heart”. He adds that, we all go to church and in his view government didn’t need to build the cathedral in the first place.

“I’m a member of the Sports, Youth and Culture Committee of Parliament and we kicked against the National Cathedral. It’s a singular decision by one man and assuming the NDC comes to power and decide not to continue, then what happens”, he quizzed.

Ragga as he is known popularly, shared that, the biggest cathedral ever built is in Cōte D’Ivoire. “Didn’t they experience civil war? So, what is the essence of building one in Ghana? Not a good project to embark upon by government at this difficult time particularly so when the president, Nana Addo has admitted we’re in an economic mess”.

Dr. Kwamena Minta Nyarku made these disclosures when he spoke on GBC Radio Central special morning show today Monday 9th January, 2023. The programme was hosted by Gideon Asmah aka MC Mr. Smile as our guest host to assess the two years he’s led the people of Cape Coast North Constituency.

When his views was sort on the current NDC crop of leaders, he intimated that, they represent the leaders the NDC wants and the reason why they won. “I think they are not propagandist as claimed by some. They are solid people who speak their minds and are loud. No one has more institutional memory than Asiedu Nketia and he winning was what the delegates wanted”. When leaders are elected, they need the support of all of us to succeed”.

In sum, he said if the National Democratic Congress are able to organize a successful presidential and parliamentary primaries, are able to select formidable PCs and work together in unison, they would win 2024 elections.
