The GHC80 million budget allocation for the cathedral’s construction was rejected by those who, according to the chairperson of the board of trustees for the National Cathedral, did not get the idea behind the project.
When one is working for God, resistance is common, according to Apostle Kwadwo Nimfour Opoku Onyinah.
Wednesday morning, Dr. Opoku Onyinah remarked, “If you go through the Bible, you see that if God wants to accomplish something, there’s a resistance thus the opposition will continue.” This was during the three-day bible reading marathon at the National Cathedral site.
“But, thank God that in the midst of opposition, God also raised those who are able to support, so, rather focus on those people who are supporting and encourage them to do that. We wish that the opposition had understood the concept. Sometimes if it’s possible for you to cut off your head and give it to somebody, you will do that and the person will never support you,” he added.
Dr. Opoku Onyinah also asked stakeholders and everyone who believe in the cathedral’s development to continue supporting the effort.
In order to continue supporting the cathedral and recruit new supporters, he stated, “we are rather encouraging those people who see the essence and importance of the cathedral.”
