Broadcaster and Presenter of Okay FM’s Drive time, Abeiku Aggrey ‘Santana’ has called on President Nana Akufo-Addo to channel resources to construct event centres rather than a Cathedral in Ghana.
President Akufo-Addo intends to establish a magnificent National Cathedral in Accra to serve as a spiritual centre for believers in the country.
Abeiku Santana, in an interview with Sammy Kay media, expressed dissenting views on the President’s vision explaining that building event centers will enhance the progress of the nation because “an event employs different category of people like musicians, bloggers, make-up artists, light and stage technicians, DJs, Presenters, producers, decorators, etc; hence providing event centres will boost the creative industry as well as create jobs”.
Abeiku Santana, affectionately called ‘Mr. Tourism’ also added “the country needs event centres to host several huge social events at ago such that we can invite foreigners. That is what happens in Benin,” he stated.
“The Cathedral is limited for only church events but most of the youth graduating from schools are doing music and not pastoring. We all go to church and we love God, but we need event centres not a Cathedral,” he concluded.
