It’s a misplaced priority to spend on Nat’l Cathedral and neglect Saglemi houses – Mahama to Akufo-Addo 

Former President John Mahama has described it as a misplaced priority on the part of President Akufo-Addo in paying huge billions of Ghana cedis for the construction of the National Cathedral and neglecting the Saglemi Housing Project.

This comes on the back of President Akufo-Addo directing the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service to investigate the criminal judicial proceedings of the Saglemi Housing project started by the erstwhile John Mahama administration.

But the former President in a Facebook post indicated that countless number of Ghanaian families could have had decent living conditions if President Akufo-Addo had completed the Saglemi Housing project.

“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 prioritize the well-being of their citizens and ensure that they benefit from government resources and projects, regardless of who initiated them,” Mr. Mahama stated.  

He continued: “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.”
