National Cathedral: ‘The whole structure will be in place by Dec. 2022′ – Victor Kusi Boateng
Victor Kusi Boateng, Member-Secretary to the National Cathedral’s Board of Trustees, has stated that the ongoing project, as well as the facilities that will be on its premises, will be completed by December 2022.
He stated that negotiations with important parties have been completed in order to ensure that the entire structure, including certain expansions made to the original concept, would be completed by the end of next year.
Mr. Boateng claimed that proper measures have been put in place to secure the construction of the inter-denominational sacred space in an interview on Prime Morning on Monday.
“By this time next year, the entire structure will be in place.” Last week, we had a meeting with the contractors, a meeting with the consultants, and a meeting with Adjaye and Associates, myself, and a few other high-profile people.”
“We looked at the dates and realized that it is achievable, it is just doable,” he said, emphasizing that “we are truly going to be able to achieve it.”
The 5,000-seat auditorium Cathedral project will leave a graceful national edifice for all Ghanaians, as well as new skills, technology, and employment, and serve as a beacon for national, regional, and worldwide tourism.
According to Victor Boateng, the main feature will be a Bible museum, which he claims would be the largest in the world once completed.
He urged Ghanaians to “understand and support this entire notion.” It makes no difference how much it costs; I always repeat that God’s work done at God’s pace will never be without God’s blessing.”
He shot off suggestions that the initiative has a low priority. He went on to say that the project will be a center of excellence because it is expected to attract more tourists from both the local and international communities.
“A lot of people assume we’re just building a church building, which is why there were so many people against it.” There is certainly a need for decent schools and roads, but I didn’t think Ghana would declare, “Because of this, we are not going to invest in football…”
“You and I both know that we haven’t won a trophy in many years and yet no one seems to mind, but I will suggest it should be done for the benefit of football-loving Ghanaians.”
The Cathedral will be officially commissioned on March 6, 2024, according to Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, who delivered the mid-year budget review on Thursday, July 29, 2021.
President Akufo-Addo said that he made a promise to God before winning the 2016 elections, which was fulfilled with the construction of the Cathedral.
The building will be designed by David Adjaye, a well-known architect.
