Ghana’s incumbent Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has announced that on August 12, a project nicknamed the “100-cedis-a-month club” will be started to allow Ghanaians to donate to the construction of the National Cathedral.
As revealed by Ken Ofori Atta, the initiative, named “Ketewa biara nsua,” will allow the general public to contribute to the cost and participate in a historic event, namely the construction of a national cathedral.
“An initiative – the 100-Cedis-a-Month Club, also dubbed “Ketewa biara nsua” – would be launched by the Trustees of the National Cathedral on 12th August 2021, to give as many Ghanaians as possible the opportunity to be part of the history to build the National Cathedral,” he said.
Mr Ofori-Atta urged all Ghanaians, including Members of Parliament, to join the one million Ghanaians expected to assist the government with GH100 every month when he presented the 2021 Mid-Year Review Budget Statement and Economic Policy on Thursday, July 29.
The aim of the Club is to mobilise one million Ghanaians who will give 100 Cedis a month towards the construction of the National Cathedral.
“We look forward to Mr Speaker and members of this august House joining the 100-Cedis-a-Month Club, and thus adding their names to the historic coalition that would build the National Cathedral to the glory of God, and the edification of our nation and its people
