A Nigerian-based mega-church called the Redeemed Christian Church of God has contributed GH¢11,500.00 to the building of Ghana's National Cathedral. Samuel Kofi Annan Wilson, the Church's General Secretary, gave the cash to Dr Paul Opoku-Mensah, the National Cathedral Secretariat's Executive Director.
At the donation ceremony held in Accra, Mr Wilson expressed the church's concern for supporting religious activities in Ghana. He said that the sum represented a seed, their quota since they are integral to Ghana's wellbeing. He explained:

Since we are all part of the nation, we must comply with any requests made of us by the country.
