Nana Kweku Bonsam Begs To Be Made President Of The Proposed National Shrine

Traditionalist Nana Kweku Bonsam has begged the government to make him the President of the proposed National Shrine.

He revealed this in an interview with Francis Abban on Morning Starr.

We reported earlier that the Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs Minister, Samuel Kofi Dzamesi, had announced the government had 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.

Explaining, he said “what we intend doing is to set up what we call a charity commission whereby all churches will be registered so that at the end of the year, the commission will see to the work of the churches and see how they have used their resources for the betterment of their people. So a charity commission is the option and not taxes.”

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