A member of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), James Kwabena Bomfeh, popularly known as Kabila has explained he did not go to court solely because of the establishment the controversial 5,000-seater national cathedral.
According to him, he is also seeking clarifications on Government’s involvement in the Islamic Pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj).
He wants an interlocutory injunction to restrain the government or any of its representatives “from being involved in or taking any steps towards the construction of the Ghana National Cathedral, including the demolition of residences of justices of the Superior Courts.”
Mr. Bomfeh also doesn’t want the government to commence “any civil works for the construction of the Ghana National Cathedral; and/or taking any action, measure or step preliminary or incidental to the construction of the Ghana National Cathedral.”
But explaining the law suit on Peace FM’s flagship morsing show – Kokrokoo on Monday, Kabila said the constitution clearly prevents the Government form any engagement in the Hajj.
“I’m not in court solely because of the establishment of the national cathedral. I’m not against it but the government’s involvement. I’m also seeking explanations as to why the Government involve itself in Hajj”, he said.
President Nana Akufo-Addo cut the sod for the construction of the national cathedral on March 6, 2017, as part of events that marked Ghana’s 60th-anniversary celebration.
