President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reiterated his commitment to complete the National Cathedral project.
The president was hopeful the project would be completed with support from the Christian community.
The President was speaking at a Thanksgiving service organised by the National Cathedral Secretariat as part of the Bible marathon today, Monday, January 2, 2023.
“As I have said before, the National Cathedral will not just be another monument adorning the skyline of Accra, it will be a rallying point for the entire Christian community to come together and worship… I am therefore committed to working with the Board of Trustees to ensure the completion of this project to the glory of God.”
Despite the opposition to the project, the President said it would be completed.
Meanwhile, the National Cathedral Secretariat has appealed to churches and the Christian community to help complete the National Cathedral project.
The Secretariat said with a contribution of GH₵100 monthly from one million Christians, the project could be completed before the year 2024.
Executive Director of the National Cathedral Secretariat, Dr. Paul Opoku Mensah said “If the Church Leaders stand with us on this project, we can easily raise One million people who will give us GH¢100 each. So essentially we need the Church to stand with us. The state has done enough, all the preparatory works have been done, and the scope of work has been done. Without the state it was impossible.”
“We need the Church in Ghana to stand with us, this is a monument to the Church, this is a monument to God and a symbol of the Christian presence in Ghana.”
