President of IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe is asking all Ghanaians to make a pact with God and promise to do something for Him in order to be blessed.
‘’I urge all of you on this Sunday to make a pact with God and promise God something to change the fortunes in your life. I will be donating to the Cathedral in Rome in the name of St. Peter for God did a lot there too’’ he said.
In an apparent reference to president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s revelation that he promised to build a national cathedral for God should he win the 2016 elections, Mr. Cudjoe sought to bring to the fore, conflicting statements by the president on the National Cathedral.
‘’I thought the original claim was that the Cathedral idea was from a section of the clergy to government. But the President is reported to have said he dreamt about it and it was his way of showing gratitude to God if he won the 2016 election’’ he said.
Mr. Codjoe cited one of the trustees of the national cathedral, Arch Bishop Nicholas Duncan Williams as saying the vow the president made was to move the hand of God to act in the president’s favour saying ‘’in fact, the chairman of the fundraising committee for the Cathedral said the President, whose two earlier efforts at the presidency failed could only be saved and win an election if he did something to ‘move the arms of God’. And that ladies and gentlemen was a vow to build a cathedral the President is reported to have made and disclosed to Bishop Duncan –Williams’’.
He concluded by saying ‘’and the President won the election in 2016 and now he is fulfilling his own prophecy. So, there you have it. Not even the party’s manifesto full of promises made by men and not the glaring economic challenges the previous NDC government supervised that made Ghanaians choose the NPP, but one man’s pact with God to build a cathedral’’.
