Supreme Court Dismisses Suit Against Construction of National Cathedral, Hajj Pilgrimage

 

The Supreme Court has dismissed a suit challenging state involvement in the construction of a National Cathedral and the setting up of the Hajj Board.

In a unanimous decision, a seven-member panel of the court held that the decision of the state had not breached any constitutional provision.

Rather, it held that the state’s actions were to provide social cohesion and unity since Christians and Muslims make up 88 percent of the country’s population.

It accordingly dismissed the suit on the basis that the plaintiff, James Kwabena Bomfeh, had failed to raise any constitutional question for interpretation or enforcement.

The judgement was read by the presiding justice, Mrs Justice Sophia Adinyera.

Other members of the panel were Mr Justice Jones Dotse, Mr Justice Anin Yeboah, Mr Justice Sule Gbadegbe, Mrs Justice Vida Akoto-Bamfo and Mr Justice A. A. Benin.
