The Strategic Thinkers Network-Africa (STRANEK-AFRICA) is calling on the clergy to advise President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to use the platform meant to raise funds toward the building of the National Cathedral in Washingto DC, to address the Ayawaso-West Wuogon by-elections violence.
STRANEK-Africa wants the President to use the international platform to comment on the “bloody” violence when he takes his turn to speak as the Guest of Honour at the fundraising event.
A statement signed by Executive Director of STRANEK-Africa, Nii Tettey Tetteh say, “Ghanaians are living in fear because of recent violent happenings. Even though, demonstration was embarked on yesterday to show their displeasure, H.E. Akufo-Addo has not spoken”.

FUND RAISING DINNER FOR NATIONAL CATHEDRAL IN THE MIDST OF VIOLENCE IN GHANA- STRANEK
Strategic Thinkers Network-Africa (STRANEK-AFRICA) wishes to remind the Clergy on this day, 8th February, 2019- where funds are being raised for the National Cathedral at the Museum of the Bible, 4th ST. SW. Washington DC 20024 at 6:00pm to call on H.E. Akuffo-Addo to speak on the bloody Ayawaso-West Wuogon by-election in these times of insecurity.
Ghanaians are living in fear because of recent violent happenings. Even though, demonstration was embarked on yesterday to show their displeasure, H.E. Akuffo-Addo has not spoken.
We wish to state that the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace in Yamoussoukro, Cote D’Ivoire did not stop the coup d’etat in 1999. It also did not stop the tension in the 2010 election of Cote D’Ivoire.
Ghana is burning with the recent and unsavoury attacks on ordinary citizens during the Ayawaso-West Wuogon by-elections by hoodlums, thugs dressed in national security uniforms amid other issues of insecurity.
On this day of fundraising for the building of the national cathedral, we urge the clergy to call on H.E. the President to speak on the bloody Ayawaso-West Wuogon by-elections when he takes his turn to speak as guest of honour.
Ghana can equally be like Cote D’Ivoire even when our “basilica” is built, if we do not take lessons from our neighbouring country. We are all involved in building our motherland Ghana.
