Akufo-Addo has redeemed GH¢100,000 pledge towards National Cathedral

In late December 2018 when President Nana Akufo-Addo launched the National Cathedral Fundraising Campaign, he made a financial pledge towards the project.

“I am proud to call myself a leading member of this coalition (of fundraisers), and I pledge GH¢100,000 as my personal contribution,” President Akufo-Addo said at the time.

That promise has been redeemed by the president according to a Member / Secretary of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral Project.

Prophet Kusi Boateng in comments made on August 1 on Joy News’ ‘The Probe’ program, confirmed that the president had made payments to that effect. “The president has, he has redeemed his pledge,” Kusi Boateng responded when asked about the pledge.

The issue of the cathedral has returned to the national conversation with last week’s appeal by the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta that individuals should contribute financially each month towards the project.

“A special shortcode 979 has been developed for this purpose as we look forward to Mr Speaker and all the members of this house to join in the GH₵100 a month initiative,” he added.
