Speaking on the National Cathedral of Ghana being sponsored by governmentof Ghana, the MP said he is part of the committee which is formed to hold the national cathedral agency accountable.

He added that if the MP gets money to build a church or cathedral, he will galdly do so but just that he doesn’t support the building of the national cathedral now because so much of the tax payers money is being spent on it at a time Ghana is in serious financial difficulties

Ahaji Yusif Sulemana said the money already invested into the construction of the National cathedral is too huge but it is still at the foundation level.

He said he is a very serious worshiper of God and will not do anything to incur the wrath of God and hence will be the last to speak against the construction of the house of God, but he is against the construction of the National cathedral because we are not in normal times and the people of Ghana are in serious hardship, and so cathedral shouldn’t be the priority of the government at this moment.

The Bole MP said said when he was speaking against the national cathedral in parliament, he was thinking about his men of God in the Bole-Bamboi Constituency and how the will understand his submission about the cathedral and God willing he is before them to explain to them why he chose to stand against it.

He said some people want to use the name of God to swindle poor taxpayers money.
