Substantial funds have been pumped into National Cathedral project, it must be completed – Egyapa Mercer

During his appearance before the Appointments Committee of Parliament on Tuesday, March 5, Minister-designate for Tourism, Arts and Culture, Andrew Egyapa Mercer, stressed the significance of finishing the National Cathedral project, expressing that it holds huge incentive for the country.

Mr Mercer featured the significant state venture previously dedicated to the task and focused on the need to own it to the end. "While we might not have limitless assets, significant subsidizing has been allotted to the undertaking, and I accept it is basic for its culmination," he said.

He dismissed claims that the project was merely the “world’s most expensive hole," contending that such reactions neglected to recognize its more extensive public importance. "It remains as a public resource in its present status and should be finished, as I would see it," he added.

Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has rejected reports demonstrating that development work on the Public Church project has continued. For a really long time, work on the venture slowed down because of lack of funds.

However, a video as of late shared on GHOneTV showed reestablished development progress, with the foundation of the cathedral currently covered.

Yet, in a social media post on January 31, Mr Ablakwa noticed that "late cases by government propagandists that work has continued on Akufo-Addo's shocking US$450million house of prayer are totally bogus.

" He showed that most recent robot film caught a couple of moments prior by SOA Oversight affirms that the "world's most costly pit stays deserted." The robot film was caught on Wednesday, January 31, 2024.

Considered in 2017 and formally divulged by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in 2018, the Public Church building is an aggressive task with a 5,000-seat limit.

The basilica is intended to highlight sanctuaries, a baptistery, a music school, a craftsmanship exhibition, and a Book of scriptures historical center. The drive plans to make an enduring heritage for Ghana as it denotes its 60th commemoration. The development of the Public Church is getting monetary help from the state, with cooperation from the Christian people group.

As of November 2022, the Money Service revealed that a measure of GH¢339,003,064.86 has been delivered for the venture. Also, GH¢113,040,654.86 has been paid to the counseling firm, Messers Sir David Adjaye and Partners, liable for the church building's development.

This data was given to the parliamentary Adhoc Board because of a solicitation for the all out government consumption on the Public Church.
