President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo reaffirmed his commitment to the project and called for support from clergy to ensure the project is successful.
He was addressing members of the Christian Council of Ghana when they paid a courtesy call on him at the Flagstaff House.
He reaffirmed his commitment to the project and called for support from clergy to ensure the project is successful.
“It is a project that is very dear to my heart, and I’m hoping that together we will be able to realise it. No matter how long it takes, I think at least we have to begin because I think it is a good idea and it inures to the ultimate benefit of all of us.”
He further called on the members of the Council who will not be directly involved in working towards the realisation of the facility, to give their ultimate support to those who will be tasked to undertake the project.
“You have to pick some, you cannot pick everyone but I know that those who will be selected to work on the project have the support of the rest who are not on it to receive their endorsement and help,” he said.
