Former presidents Rawlings and Mahama have reportedly expressed their concerns about the proposed national cathedral to the chairman of the fundraising committee, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams.
This was after the man of God interacted to the former presidents and gave them the opportunity to express their concerns about the project.
“They’ve all given us their blessings and they’ve brought up their concerns and issues they think we should address and look at,” he explained.
He added that the concerns have come to the attention of the secretariat and are being addressed.
Archbishop Duncan-Williams went on to say that the secretariat will bring clarity to all the concerns that have been raised by the public.
In his opinion, the cathedral should unite the country rather than divide it.
Meanwhile, a fundraising programme for the construction of the cathedral will cost participants a minimum of $1,000.
Government says the construction of the building will come at no cost to the taxpayer but said it will provide seed money for its construction.
The cathedral will sit around a 14-acre garden and will have chapels, a baptistery, a music school, an art gallery, a Bible Museum and Documentation Centre.
It is expected to seat 5,000 people in its main auditorium and will be constructed by renowned British-Ghanaian architect Sir David Adjaye.
