The government of Ghana is pleading with Ghanaians to contribute ¢100 monthly to help construct a national cathedral. The target is to raise $100M.

According to Rev Ebenezer, the cathedral will attract tourists and also create employment for Ghanaians.

“This is going to bring huge tourism in this country, a lot of people are going to get jobs and we will see tourism having a facelift,”

Asked how much has been budgeted for the entire project, he answered “On the onset before the Biblical Garden and the Bible Museum, it was pegged at a hundred million dollars, now that it has been added it will be a bit higher. I can’t tell you exactly but it will be a bit higher than the hundred million dollars.

“How much it has come in? Thank God we have gotten a seed amount from the state and also with the various fundraising we held in Accra in December 2018 , in Washington in 2019 and also in Kumasi January 2020, we have had a quite amount of money .

“I think that about half of the hundred million.”
