The Construction of the national cathedral has been the subject of controversies in Ghana for many concerning the funding and prioritization of the project.

Both Archbishop Duncan-Williams and Reverend Eastwood Anaba in a statement, explained their motive for resigning as the Government’s failure to contract an independent accounting firm to audit the funding of the project to bring transparency.

The revered clergymen had made a request since January 2023 to the government to suspend the construction of the cathedral until after the auditing which the government have failed to grant the request.

“Despite our prayers, best hopes and wishes, unfortunately, a needed audit to help restore public confidence and trust in this consequential project has not been enacted to the best of our knowledge. Since January 2023, we awaited news to no avail, regarding the finding of the audit.

We, therefore, regret that as a matter of conscience and faith, we hereby submit to you our resignation from the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral.”

The two Christian leaders also attributed their call for the suspension of the project to the current economic hardships in Ghana. They felt the government should try to get the economy back on track before embarking on such project.
