The Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral has revealed through a statement that the project stalled due to a lack of funding.
Board Chairman Prof. Apostle Opoku Onyinah said inadequate funding brought the construction work on the project to a standstill.
“A general misunderstanding that it is the state that is fully funding the construction of the National Cathedral, and that within the challenging economic atmosphere in the country, this is misplaced.”
He disclosed that the project stalled because of the “general impression being created that the National Cathedral project is not being executed with the expected high Christian standards of integrity, transparency, and accountability.”
He was however hopeful that the project would be completed once the concerns raised about the projects have been resolved.
“It is the hope and trust of the Board of the National Cathedral of Ghana that once these nagging issues are satisfactorily dealt with, the public interest and confidence in the project would be restored and rekindled to enable the citizenry to contribute generously to complete the Cathedral to the glory of God.”
