On Friday, 8th February, 2019, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, together with the Founder of Action Chapel, Arch Bishop Nicholas Duncan Williams, the Catholic Arch Bishop of Cape Coast, Most Reverend Charles Gabriel Palmer Buckle, the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Aaron Oquaye and the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of First Sky Group, Eric Seddy Kutortse participated in a fundraising event for the construction of the National Cathedral of Ghana in the United States of America.
The Fundraiser in the United States of America comes after one was held in Ghana which saw various private sector players contribute to the course.
The First Sky group for example donated 1 Million Ghana Cedis towards the construction of the National Cathedral.
Chairman of the Group, Mr Eric Seddy Kutortse, who presented a cheque for GH¢1 million on behalf of the company, also donated 4,000 bags of cement, 500 metric tonnes of chippings and 50 metric tonnes of iron rods towards the project, during the 15th Annual thanksgiving anniversary of the First Sky Group in Accra.
Mr Kutortse described the project as a laudable one which he said was a vehicle towards the promotion of national unity.
He said the project was a good intervention by the government; hence, the decision of the company to sow a seed as part of its corporate social responsibility towards the construction of the national cathedral.
It therefore was not surprising when he was spotted at the Fund Raising event in the United States of America alongside the president and other top dignitaries.
President Akufo-Addo said the Cathedral will be a point for the Christian community to come together to worship, to pray and to promote deep national conversations on the role of faith in building Ghana.
‘’It will house a Bible Museum, and it will be an iconic infrastructure for national, regional and international pilgrimage and tourism. That is why we are trying to mobilise the Christian community, home and abroad, to join in partnership to raise the needed resources to build the Cathedral’’ he added.
