Chief Imam donates Ghc50,000 towards the construction of National Cathedral
The National Chief Imam Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu has contributed Ghc50,000 to help in the construction of Ghana’s National Cathedral.
The respected Islamic cleric donated the amount when the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral Project led by Chairman of the Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah paid a courtesy call on him.
The interdenominational Christian Cathedral, when completed, will have a 5,000 seating capacity with chapels, a baptistery, a music school, an art gallery and a Bible museum, among others.
Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia last week appealed to Ghanaians to support the building o9f the National Cathedral.
He said it will be in the greater interest of the country if the National Cathedral is constructed.
“As you all know, there are efforts to build a National Cathedral. It is very important that we build the Cathedral. It is a voluntary exercise; anybody who wants to contribute can contribute. I have contributed, and I will contribute some more. So, I encourage everybody to think about it and let’s build it. It is not for anybody. It is for Ghana and for the glory of God,” the Vice President who is a devout Muslim, said on Sunday in Accra.
He made the profound statement when he joined the Adabraka Official Town branch of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana to celebrate the 30th anniversary and ordination service of Rev. Kwadwo Owusu-Sarpong.
The Vice President said that “Ghana is Africa’s second most peaceful country, with adherents of many religions living and working together to build the nation. The construction of the Cathedral would add further to our enviable record of peaceful co-existence,” he stated.
