North Tongu Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said a future National Democratic Congress (NDC) government will conduct a scientific survey on the National Cathedral project to sample the views of Ghanaians regarding whether or not the project is needed before a decision is taken to discontinue it or otherwise.
Asked whether an NDC government will continue the National Cathedral project, Mr Ablakwa while speaking on the New Day show with Johnnie Hughes on TV3 Tuesday, June 21 answered: “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.
“Remember that this pledge was not even in the NPP manifesto. 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.”
