Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah, who serves as the chairman of the National Cathedral of Ghana’s board of trustees, has defended the costs associated with the cathedral’s up-to-this-point development.
Despite the significant investment that has been made on the project, the National Cathedral Board of Trustees and the government have come under fire from the public for how the cathedral is coming along.
However, the Apostle Opoku Onyinah claims that the cost of the cathedral’s construction is high due of the labor-intensive nature of the project.
The National Cathedral would have amenities that have never been seen in the world, according to the former Chairman of the Church of Pentecost of Ghana, who was speaking in a UTV interview on Friday, June 9, 2023.
The large Pentecost Convention Centre cost around $87 million, whilst the cathedral, despite the fact that there isn’t a physical structure at the project’s site, has cost $50 million so far, the pastor denied claims that there was foul play in the project’s development.
In Twi, he stated, “The Pentecost Convention Centre had been finished and we had spent around $87 million when I was leaving the chairperson post of the Pentecost Church.
“The Cathedral won’t seem like any other building; instead, it’ll resemble a community. The Cathedral and the Pentecost Convention Centre are different from one another.
“In America, I was stunned when I went to the Bible Museum. Cary Summers claims that the size of our museum will surpass that of the Americans,” he continued.
