Member of Parliament for Assin South John Ntim Fordjour has taken a swipe at critics of government’s intention of building a National Cathedral describing their arguments as misguided and infantile.

According to the Assin South lawmaker, it is extremely infantile and misguided for any individual or group to think that an improved and cohesive relation between Government and religious leaders are deemed interference in religious matters.

The MP, who is also a Reverend Minister of the Victory Bible Church International at East Legon in Accra, said this in an article in response to the massive outcry over the controversial National Cathedral project.

He further added that even if resources of the State were to be committed into the building of the National Cathedral for Ghana that would be the most vital Government spending in the history of the Nation of Ghana.

“Why are people not rather concerned about the retrieval and retention of the estimated three billion dollars ($3 billion) lost through corruption every year?”

And questioned why when government focus attention on the development of Islam-dominated communities that was not deemed “religious interference” and “misplace priority”.

Mr. John Ntim Fordjour, pointed out in his statement that the most disheartening and disappointing observation is Christians who had joined in the ill-informed criticisms, being heaped on the long-overdue monumental vision.
