Nana Akomea, former NPP Director of Communications, justifies building National Cathedral despite the economic difficulty.

“70% of our population is Christian, thus constructing a cathedral is crucial. I’m glad our Muslim friends have a Mosque befitting their faith, erected with government funding. Christians will welcome a national cathedral for hosting national events.

Nana Akomea remarked on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana, “Many nations have this facility. In America, individuals still sleep on the streets; in London, they have national cathedrals for national events.

However, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa on the other hand has urged President Akufo-Addo to study Proverbs 21:3 and halt wicked and unconstitutional activities in the guise of a National Cathedral sacrifice to God.

“Why is the Akufo-Addo administration providing GH25 million for the National Cathedral?” he asked.

“Shockingly,” Ablakwa said, “this is the same government citing lack of finances to pay NABCo trainees, school meal caterers, service employees, etc.”

On March 5, 2020, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo lay the Cathedral’s foundation stone.

A National Cathedral Secretariat has been established to solicit contributions from people and the commercial sector for its construction.

The cathedral will include chapels, a baptistery, a 5000-seat two-level auditorium, a grand central hall, music school, choir rehearsal, art gallery, store and multi-use rooms.

It will house Africa’s first Bible Museum and Documentation Centre, devoted to Ghanaian Christianity and nation-building.
