President Nana Akufo-Addo insists the construction of the National Cathedral will go through despite the criticisms hurled at his government.
According to the President, he will still go ahead and make sure the edifice is built to the glory of God.
“… Through Christ who strengthens us, the National Cathedral will be built to the glory and honour of God. Amen!”
The president, on Tuesday, 6 March 2018 unveiled the design and architecture for the National Cathedral at a brief ceremony at the Accra International Conference Centre.
It would house impressive chapels and baptistery, a 5,000-capacity auditorium, grand central hall, music school, choir rehearsal and multi-purpose spaces, an art gallery, and a shop.
The president said the edifice would be an iconic centre for Thanksgiving and for worshipping God for His mercies and urged Ghanaians to support the project.
Making that a reality, however, requires the pulling down of some state institutions including residential bungalows, some of which were built five years ago that house some Supreme Court Justices.
The two major parties, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are not in agreement over the project.
Also, the Acting General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Kwabena Bonfeh Jnr., has dragged the government to the Supreme Court over the matter.
