Gov’t considering building national shrine after cathedral

The Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs Minister, Samuel Kofi Dzamesi, has announced government has the intention to build a national shrine for traditional leaders.

Addressing the media on Wednesday, Mr. Dzamesi disclosed that some traditional groups have petitioned his Ministry for the construction of a national shrine which he said is being considered by the government.

He was of the view that the construction of a shrine is a step in the right direction since Christian and Islamic faiths in the country will have a national cathedral and mosque respectively.

Mr Dzamesi further added plans are underway to establish a charity commission to evaluate and audit the humanitarian actives of churches in the country.

He also said the Ministry was ready to present the national policy on religion to the government.
