The Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel A. Jinapor has debunked claims that funds received for the reconstruction of the Appiatse Community is being channelled to the the construction of the National Cathedral.


According to Mr. Jinapor, it is completely outrageous for anybody to make such suggestions.


Addressing the media on his trip to the Appiatse Community, he said “I want to debunk the usual political propaganda which is that the funds which have been contributed or raised for the construction of the Appiate community is being used for the construction of the National Cathedral. It is completely outrageous for anybody to make such suggestions”

The Lands Minister also described the alleged allegation as palpably untrue.


Mr. Jinapor reminded all that government in 2022, firmed a the Appiatse Board which came up with the Appiatse Support Fund aimed at soliciting some funds for the building of the country.

Mr. Jinapor on his tour to Appiatse Community donated some assorted relief items.

While commending the Prestea-Huni-Valley Municipality for its tremendous work, Mr. Jinapor revealed that he was impressed with work so far and urged them to do more.

“Indeed, I’m happy to say from my visits to this site for the construction which shows that considerable work is being done under the able leadership of my Deputy, Benito Owusu Bio and his team and I must commend them. We are now at a stage where the construction is going to begin in the not-too-distant future. We are determined to reconstruct the Appiate community into a model modern Ghanaian rural community which is fit for purpose and will serve as an example for the future“

Tents which used to be the homes for the affected persons were demolished as they were ushered into the Future Global Resource’s temporary settlement site.

An amount of GHc10,000 was also donated to the residents by the Lands Minister, Samuel A. Jinapor.
