The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), a Nigeria-based church, has donated an amount of GH¢11,500.00 towards the construction of the National Cathedral of Ghana.
The General Secretary of the Church, Samuel Kofi Annan Wilson, presented the money to Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah, Executive Director of the National Cathedral Secretariat.
Speaking at the donation ceremony in Accra, Mr. Wilson said the amount represents a seed, which is their quota because they’re part of the wellbeing of the nation.
“Since we’re part of the nation, whatever the nation asks us to do, we have to participate.”
Meanwhile, some faith-based organisations have taken an exemplary step by donating to the tune of GH¢2.21 million towards the construction of the National Cathedral.
