The commencement of the construction of the debatable National Cathedral which was earlier scheduled for April will begin in October as promised by President Akufo-Addo.
This is according to a Citi News interview with the Secretary of the Board of Trustees for the project, Victor Kusi Boateng.
According to Mr Kusi Boateng, the new date will see the completion of the cathedral.
“It had to be delayed because there were a few complications here and there with regard to people that were going to work on the project. Actual construction will begin in October  if not for the COVID-19. By the grace of God the main contractor of the project is almost approved and so by the first or second week of October construction will start,” he added.
President Akufo-Addo’s priorities have been questioned ever since he decided to build a National Cathedral. A large section of the citizenry believe amongst all the problems facing Ghana, a National Cathedral is not one of the solutions.
However, the president has said the construction of the National Cathedral is in fulfilment of a personal promise he made to God before the 2016 general elections.
The monument is expected to be put up within the next five years and will have a 5,000 seating capacity with chapels, a baptistery, a music school, an art gallery and a Bible museum.
