Building a national cathedral is a misplaced priority – Samini

Multiple award-winning Ghanaian reggae/dancehall music icon, Emmanuel Andrews Sammini, widely known by his stage name Samini has expressed his opinion on the government building of a National Cathedral in the midst of the country’s economic challenges.

Speaking in an interview with Bella Mundi on TV3’s The Day Show, Samini, who was known to have supported the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the past, didn’t shy away from his concerns, spoke up against the government’s plan to construct a National Cathedral in this hard time.

The ‘My Own’ hitmaker strongly referred to the decision for the building of National Cathedral by the government of Ghana as a case of misplaced priority when he was asked about how he feels about the performance of the government so far.

“I am a person who does not buy into the idea of building a national Cathedral. That is purely a misplaced priority,” Samini stated.

He urged the government to shift its focus and allocate resources to critical sectors like healthcare, education, job creation, and poverty alleviation.

In his view, addressing these pressing issues should take precedence over constructing a National Cathedral, especially during these ongoing economic issues.
