He said the government will be financing 20 percent of the proposed cost.

Speaking on Accra based Asempa FM, Ofori Atta said government will be committing $20 million to the project.

The building of the Cathedral is in fulfilment of a pledge President Akufo-Addo revealed he made to God before winning the 2016 elections.

He said the 5,000-seater auditorium Cathedral project will also bequeath to the country a gracious national park for all Ghanaians, bring new skills, technology and jobs to the country and will act as a beacon to national, regional and international tourists.

Construction is expected to begin in March 2020 and the Finance Minister is convinced that God will build His temple.
