Background

“It will provide us with an avenue to call the nation to prayer, to worship, to celebrate, and to mourn. It will house a Bible Museum and will be an iconic infrastructure for national, regional and international pilgrimage and tourism. It will create jobs, and serve as a catalyst for technology and skills transfer into our country,” - President Akufo-Addo stressed.

 “The Cathedral will also provide a platform to promote deep national conversations on the role of faith in building the progressive and prosperous Ghana we all want. I am convinced that out of these conversations would emerge the ideas and values that should help us build a new Ghanaian civilization. This is the basis on which I identify it as a personal priority.” - President Akufo-Addo

H.E. President Nana Akufo-Addo has said he promised God a National Cathedral before he became president, and will redeem that pledge.

“Rather, and again like Solomon on that occasion, the building of the National Cathedral is to serve as a gesture of thanksgiving to God for his blessings, favour, grace and mercies on our nation, and to give me an opportunity to redeem a pledge I made to Him before I became President,”-

"It is an immense honour to be granted the opportunity to contribute something of this scale and import to my home country, I have sought to craft a building that not only understands its landscape, but one that will be unique to Accra and the Ghanaian nation."
