National Cathedral: Otumfuo solely built Jubilee Hall; Akufo-Addo used public fund to dig expensive hole – A Plus


Entertainment personality turned politician, Kwame Obeng Asare, also known as A Plus, commended Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, for spearheading a remarkable infrastructural project in his jurisdiction.

A Plus expressed admiration for the Asantehene’s initiative in solely funding the impressive construction endeavour, which promises to bolster economic development in the region.

However, A Plus criticised the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for its perceived failure to complete the National Cathedral project despite seeking financial contributions from the public.

During an appearance on United Showbiz on UTV, A Plus voiced his discontent with the state of the National Cathedral project and accused the government of undermining the trust of Ghanaians.

“Look at what Otumfuo alone has built [Jubilee Hall]… Due to bad mindset, we have invested money in digging the biggest hole in the world with the National Cathedral project. Aren’t they [politicians] ashamed when they see the building? They have taken huge sums of money from the public to build the cathedral, but they haven’t yet been able to. Look at what Otumfuo alone has done.

“This sends a signal to the government that the cathedral project has not been taken seriously. We are hoping that very soon it [Otumfuo’s Jubilee Hall] will be opened for public access. I’m happy with the fact that Otumfuo funded this project,” he told the show host, MzGee.

About the Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Jubilee Hall

On Monday, April 15, 2024, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II inaugurated the grand Otumfuo Osei Tutu II Jubilee Hall, a prestigious addition to the Ashanti Kingdom.

The hall, named in his honour, showcases a blend of traditional and modern architecture, boasting impressive features such as a 400-capacity cocktail lounge, spacious offices, a fully air-conditioned hall with a seating capacity of 2000, approximately 60 lavatories, ample parking, and a state-of-the-art kitchen facility.

Adorned with intricate traditional motifs, the interior of the hall is adorned with symbolic representations, including a three-dimensional depiction of the Golden Stool, a musician playing the talking drum, and various Adinkra symbols.

Addressing attendees at the commissioning ceremony, Juabenhene Nana Otu Siriboe II highlighted the hall’s versatility, noting its suitability for hosting private Asanteman gatherings, social gatherings, symposiums, cultural performances, and other events.

Furthermore, Nana Otu Siriboe II revealed that the hall was named after the Asantehene to honour his enduring legacy for generations to come.

Despite having the option to seek financial contributions from his sub-chiefs, the Asantehene opted to personally fund the project, a testament to his commitment to the development and prosperity of the Ashanti Kingdom.
