Half a billion cedis gone, no cathedral or Saglemi completed Because corruption – Mahama
The former president of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama has described the current state of the National Cathedral as a result of corrupt administration by the Akufo-Addo led government.
According him, the government has spent half a billion cedis on the National Cathedral project but there’s nothing to show.
On the Saglemi housing project, he emphasised that, the NPP government has abandoned the project simply because it was initiated by John Mahama and the NDC government.

It is unacceptable for Akufo-Addo to spend over half a billion cedis on a national cathedral project that has ultimately failed due to corruption and is now abandoned, yet refuses to commit funds to complete a housing project that will benefit thousands of Ghanaian families.
Knowing the NPP government, they did not want to complete the Saglemi housing project simply because it was initiated by John Mahama and an NDC administration.
Leaders must always prioritise the well-being of their citizens and ensure that they benefit from government resources and projects, regardless of who initiated them.
The misplaced priorities of a government that claims it is unable to raise money to complete the Saglemi housing project and yet is willing to spend half a billion cedis on the largest civil excavation in Africa is a humiliating slap in the face of Ghanaians who entrusted Akufo Addo with their mandate.
Just think about the countless number of Ghanaian families who could have had decent living conditions over the past 7 years and the individuals who could have had a place to truly call home in Saglemi.
