The building of the National Cathedral has, without a doubt, been shrouded in a lot of controversies, some of which have stemmed from the question; who is funding the construction?
At its onset, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo indicated how the building of this edifice is in the personal fulfilment of a promise he made to God.
Since then, there have been accounts to the effect that the estimated $400 million project would be funded by private hands, including churches, as well as a recent revelation that the government, through the Ministry of Finance, has been releasing funds towards the construction of the religious edifice.
While the debates rage, a list showing all the contributions made by various churches across the country, and sourced from Graphic Online, has emerged online.
From the list, the highest contributions since 2018, have come from the Church of Pentecost (General Headquarters), with its GH¢500,000 donation.
Other churches like the Action Chapel International (GH¢200,000) are among the highest contributors.
