Chief Imam donates money to the national cathedral project

Construction of the National Cathedral has received a boost with a ¢50,000 contribution from the National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu.

He is hopeful, the money will aid the speedy construction of the national edifice, which is also expected to serve as a tourist site to earn revenue for the construction.

The Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral, Apostle Opoku Onyinah, was excited about the rare move by the Chief Imam.

He urged everyone, especially people of different religious faiths, to emulate the gesture.

“We are overwhelmed and lost for words. This is a big gesture, and we appreciate it. I think many people, including Christians and Muslims, will follow what the Chief Imam has done,” he said.

The board chair added, “This is a big gesture, and we appreciate it. I think many people, including Christians and Muslims, will follow what he has done so that the world we know we are not using our diversity to fight one another but exhibit love to one another.’’

Responding to criticism that government should not be soliciting funds for the project, Apostle Onyinah explained, “when I hear of it, I know that they do not understand it.

“The project is a mighty project that is going to demonstrate many things. It has the potential of bringing the world to Ghana because of the museum and biblical garden.

“It will bring all faiths together, but I understand those talking; however, if they do not understand something, it’s better to keep quiet, make research into it, understand it before speaking, otherwise we lose out values as Christians.’’

Meanwhile, the board will be launching a fundraising strategy to solicit contributions for the Cathedral, which is at the excavation level.

This will be on the 5th of September at the Oil Dome of the Royal House Chapel at Abossey Okai in the Greater Accra Region.

Regarding the monies received so far through the short code 979, Apostle Onyinah, who could not give the exact amount in the coffers, noted it will be made public on the day of launch.

He continues to urge all to give noting, “if 1million Ghanaians contribute a minimum of ¢100 monthly consistently for a year, we will be able to put up the national Cathedral without any financial difficulties at all.”

Nana Addo Bans Ministers From Traveling Abroad

President Nana Akufo-Addo has placed a one-month international travel ban on his ministers and deputy ministers.⁠

According to a new report by AsaaseNews, travelling is only allowed for medical emergencies. The directive by the President will be the second of its kind since he assumed office as President of the Republic in January 2017.⁠

On 21 June 2018, the president, in a letter signed by his Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei Opare, directed that all foreign travel by ministers, deputy ministers, metropolitan/municipal/district chief executives and heads of government agencies be suspended temporarily with immediate effect.⁠

“Guidelines in respect of future foreign travels aimed at minimising disruption to the government’s domestic work will be communicated to you shortly,” the 2018 directive said.⁠

The reason for this latest travel ban is not readily known.

E-levy Proceeds Will Create Jobs For Over 11 Million People - Ofori-Atta

The Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, has said proceeds from the 1.75% E-Levy, proposed in the 2022 budget, would ensure that over 11 million people are employed.

He noted that 58 percent of the country’s population are between 15 and 59 years, which is about 18million people.

“Of this number, 2.4million are in formal employment whilst the remaining 15 million are split between informal and underemployment”, stressing that 11 million people are with no clear path when it comes to employment opportunities.

It was held on the theme: “Building a Sustainable Entrepreneurial Nation; Opportunities for Ghana’s Youth”.

Ken Ofori-Atta contended that “for us as a government, our task is to ensure we extend opportunities to the youth. The consequences of having eleven million people with no clear path, undoubtedly, our recovery efforts hinges on tailored support to provide skills and funding to our young people to pursue their ambition to free them”, indicating that nothing is impossible.

“How do we as a nation move into an entrepreneurial stage to have an opportunity to contribute to national development? How do we reduce our debt and create employment?

How do we take care of our infrastructure and roads so that we open up the country and build good Internet systems to create opportunities for all? Why are we being resistant to the future? We have nothing to fear. Have we as a nation understood the times that we are in and are we ready to sacrifice to move to a whole different level”?

Ken Ofori-Atta emphasized that “When somebody tells you we shouldn’t go there, tell them, give me an alternative for this 11 million people who are at home and not working”.

I Fear For My Life When I Sit In Chamber Sometimes - Afenyo-Markin

Deputy Majority Leader in Parliament, Alexander Kwamina Afenyo-Markin has admitted to living in fear of his life during and after some proceedings in the House.

According to him, some sessions which involve heated debate has sometimes culminated in threats of physical harm and abuse.

Speaking on the News File segment on Joy News, Afenyo-Markin alleged that the recent impasse over the 2022 budget statement has revealed a plot by the minority to physically abuse, Joseph Osei-Owusu who presided over a ruling as the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament.

“Sometimes I sit in the chamber and I fear for my own life. I fear for my life because one moment we are debating then you threaten someone that I will beat you.

You should call them out. Sam George is apologizing on behalf of the minority and majority, we don’t need you to apologise for us. With all due respect, apologize for your caucus. NPP has been gentle,” he said.
