National Cathedral is dear to my heart – Akufo-Addo

President Nana Akufo-Addo has said the construction of national cathedral is dear to his hear.

The President cut the sod for the project on 6 March.

The cathedral, meant to be used by Christians for non-denominational events in the country, has received some criticism from people who deem it divisive.

President Akufo-Addo, however, told the clergy from the Christian Council of Ghana who paid a courtesy call on him at the Flagstaff House on Tuesday that: “It is a project that is very dear to my heart, and I’m hoping that together we will be able to realise it.”
“No matter how long it takes, I think at least we have to begin, because I think it is a good idea and it inures to the ultimate benefit of all of us,” Nana Akufo-Addo said.

“You have to pick some, you cannot pick everyone, but I know that those who will be selected to work on the project have the support of the rest who are not on it to receive their endorsement and help,” the President told the clergy.

One of the harshest critics of the project is the CPP’s Kwabena Bonfeh Jr who has taken the matter to court.
