The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has called on government to stay every process leading to the construction of the National Cathedral until the final determination of the suit brought against the project is determined in court.
The CPP made the call in statement signed by its National Chairman and Leader, Professor Edmond Delle, marking Positive Action Day which falls today Tuesday, January 8, 2019.
‘’It is in the spirit of Positive Action that we condemn the continued disrespect by the President and his assigns to the basic principles of the rule of law and due process in desperately pursuing a cathedral project in the name of the State despite the pendency of the matter at the Supreme Court. We believe that the case at the Supreme Court borders on the interpretation of the secularity of Ghana. Conscious of the fact that an application for an interlocutory injunction was filed in the matter, we expected the government to act in good faith by staying every step towards the construction until after the determination of the matter. It appears to us in the CPP, that the government has a bad case and is thus using subterfuge and luring tactics to procure a travesty of justice. But we trust the judges would do right to themselves and the Constitution of Ghana’’ the statement added.
