NATIONAL CATHEDRAL MUST BE COMPLETED – New Tourism Minister, Egyapa Mercer Insists

The Minister-designate for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Andrew Egyapa Mercer has emphasized how important it is to finish the National Cathedral project and how important it is to the country.

Speaking before the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Tuesday, March 5, 2024, the Sekondi Member of Parliament stressed the point about the considerable state investments already dedicated to the project, while indicating that there is the need to see it through to its end.

Mercer has refuted claims that the project’s current location is the “most expensive hole in the world,” arguing that such depictions ignore the project’s larger national significance.

He went on to say that the project’s effective completion depends on national unity and advised against abandoning it because the state has already invested a large amount of money in it.

Such a move, he continued, would be detrimental.

Mercer emphasized that the Cathedral’s construction should make effective use of state resources, stressing that it might have a positive impact on the nation’s development plan.

“While we may not have unlimited resources, substantial funding has been allocated to the project, and I believe it is imperative for its completion. The notion that it is the world’s most expensive hole is not acceptable. It stands as a national asset in its current state and must be finalized, in my opinion,” he explained.

Andrew Egyapa Mercer is the first appointee to be vetted following the nomination of ministers and deputies by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo recently.
