Also expected to participate in the conversations are former Presidents Jerry John Rawlings, J. A. Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama as well as the Auditor-General, Mr Daniel Yao Domelevo.
“It is first and foremost a “conversation” where individuals are permitted to share their views on the issue or issues under discussion. It is also in the “Cathedral” because the event is situated within the cathedral of the Most Rev. John Bonaventure Kwofie,” Rev. Fr John Patrick Tindana, Director of Missions Office of the Accra Archdiocese told the Daily Graphic.
An initiative of Most Rev. Kwofie, he said, ‘Conversations in the Cathedral’ would bring people of diverse backgrounds, expertise and creed together to dialogue as people of the same humanity who have the interest of the common good at stake.

That will eventually inure to the benefit of the nation as a whole and help promote peace and stability. At the end of the day, we shall come to understand that we are not enemies but people of a common destiny,” Rev. Fr Tindana explained.
