Despite strong opposition, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has defended the controversial National Cathedral’s construction.

He clarified that the Cathedral will serve as a focal point for the entire Christian community to gather and worship in addition to being a place of worship and a representation of Christianity in the nation.

The President said, “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,” in a statement following his donation of GH100,000.

So, I’m determined to cooperate with the Board of Trustees to see that this project is finished to God’s glory.

The Parliament rejected the GH80 million budgetary allocation for the National Cathedral’s construction in December 2022.
The allocation was reintroduced by the government in the budget estimates for the Roads and Highways and Communication Ministries, which led to the rejection.

In contrast to the initial allocation of GH260 million for the year 2023, the House later approved a sum of GH180 million for the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture.

The government envisioned the $450 million National Cathedral project in March 2017 as a physical representation of societal harmony, spirituality, and unity.

The multireligious cathedral is anticipated to have an auditorium capable of seating 5,000 people, as well as chapels, and a baptistery.
