Tourists Would Still Visit Shrines Instead Of National Cathedral – IMANI-Africa Vice President



Bright Simons, Honorary Vice President of IMANI-Africa, has said a tourist visiting Ghana would prefer to go to the Sakumono shrine instead of the National Cathedral when completed.

He questioned the government’s claim that the $250 million projects upon its completion will attract millions of tourists to the country.

He was of the view that the government could have invested in existing traditional sites if the aim was to attract religious tourists.

He stated that people will visit the cathedral for two main purposes adding that they will visit for historical, artistic, and also spiritual.

“If you are a tourist, you will probably come to Ghana to see the Sakumono Shrine if it was probably designed to be tourist-friendly than coming to see another Christian cathedral,” Bright Simons said on Joy Newsfile.

Construction work on the interdenominational National Cathedral at Ridge in Accra has come to a halt months after President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo laid the foundation stone brought from Jerusalem, Israel, for the commencement of the project.

The National Cathedral when completed will house chapels and baptistery, a 5,000-seater main auditorium which will be expandable to a 15,000-seating capacity for national events and celebrations.
