The minister for Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Samuel Kofi Dzamesi, has debunked claims the ministry is courting the idea of building a national shrine for traditional leaders in Ghana.
Mr. Dzamesi was quoted by several media houses purporting to have said a national shrine was in the offing.
But responding to the claims on Adom FM’s morning show ‘Dwaso Nsem’ monitored by nsemwoha.com on Thursday, Mr Dzamesi, said:
“Just yesterday at my press briefing, someone asked a question why the government isn’t putting up a shrine, rather concentrating on building a national cathedral. And I responded by saying that some Wolomei (GA Traditional Priests) have presented a petition on that,” he said.
“And we can only look at their plea, but I never said I was going to build a national shrine,”.
