“It is an extremely solemn occasion for me because this is something that I have thought about sometime; I am hoping that if God is kind to me this will see the light of the day while I am a tenant," the President said.

According to the president, it is necessary to have the board in place for them to agree on the design, supervise the construction and raise the money for the whole project.

He added that the cathedral would be an interdenominational one, where Christians of all faiths would gather in worship, explaining that state religious events would be held there.

President Nana Akufo-Addo on March 6 cut the sod for the start of construction of the National Cathedral.

Board Chairman, Rt. Rev. Asante Antwi, thanked the President for his visionary works, indicating their readiness to deliver the project in the coming years.

He assured President Nana Akufo-Addo they would get to work immediately to see to the successful completion of the project.

The project is one of the many legacy projects of the country's 60th Anniversary Committee.

The other board members include Archbishop Charles Plamer Buckle, Vice Chairman; and Prophet Kusi Boateng, Secretary to the Board

Others are Apostle Opoku Onyinah, Rev Joyce Agree, Rev Prof Cephas Amenyo, Rt Rev. Offei Akrofi, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams and Rev. Eastwood Anaba.

The rest are Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, Pastor Mensa Otabil, Rev Dr. Frimpong Manso and former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, Prof Emmanuel Martey.
