The malicious attempt by a section of Ghanaians to defile the sanctity of the proposed National Cathedral by laying claim of sponsorship package from the homosexual community has backfired. The Executive Director of the National Cathedral Secretariat overseeing the building of the edifice, Dr Paul Opoku-Mensah has vehemently refuted the wild claim that the homosexual community has donated an amount of $25 million towards the project. In a rejoinder to a story circulating on social media titled: ‘Good News: Gay Community to finance Ghana’s National Cathedral’, Dr. Opoku-Mensah described the publication as untrue. According to the reportage, the Gay community in Ghana, through their counterparts UK LGBT Association had donated an amount of $25 million to support the construction of the National Cathedral of Ghana. He said "This news item is false". “The Secretariat of the National Cathedral has NOT received any such donation from the so-called ‘Gay Community in Ghana’”, it added, stressing: “This news item, which does not provide the date nor the recipient of the said donation, is a concoction of the fictitious author”. It continued: “In launching the fundraising campaign for the National Cathedral, the president called for a ‘coalition of the willing’ that will arise and build the cathedral to the glory of God. “This coalition does NOT have room for interest groups, and individuals whose motivation to give to the cathedral will be to draw attention to themselves and their issues. “Rather, the coalition will be united only in their support of the president’s vision of the National Cathedral as a national gesture of thanksgiving, and a sacred national infrastructure. Dr. Opoku-Mensah therefore urged the public to disregard the false publication, and treat it with the contempt it deserved. The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced his intention to build a National Cathedral for the Christian community in particular, but his decision has since been met with stiff opposition from some Ghanaians describing it as needless venture. President Nana Addo explained that the construction of the Cathedral was his personal pledge made to God during his 2016 campaign season and that nothing could stop him from honouring it.
