The National Chief Imam, Sheikh Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, has reportedly donated GH¢50,000 to support the construction of the National Cathedral.
He made the donation on Thursday, August 26, when the board of trustees for the building project paid a courtesy call on him at his office.
A platform has been launched by government to encourage Ghanaians to contribute towards the construction of the Cathedral which has become controversial.
Prophet Victor Kusi Boateng, the secretary of the board of trustees however says the Cathedral is part of a strategic project to change the face of the tourism sector in Ghana.
“The structure will have other iconic features like the state of the art Bible museum, which will be the second-largest in the world, a biblical garden with every fruit in the bible grown there, and we will have a biblical restaurant to serve all the foods heard from the bible.
“There will be a broken part of the wailing wall from Israel in the Garden where people from all over the world can come to pray. This is a strategic project to change the dynamics of Tourism in Ghana,” he added.
He also stated that the cathedral which is expected to be commissioned on March 6, 2024, will have a space to house the Dead Scrolls, which will likely attract more religious tourists from Australia, India and other parts of the world to Ghana.
