The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) found themselves in a confrontation with personnel from the Ghana Armed Forces while en route to the National Cathedral site.

This comes on the back of an earlier announcement by the government that the project will be commissioned today, March 6, 2024.

While delivering the 2021 mid-year budget review in Parliament on Thursday, July 29, 2021, the then-Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta said the $100-million inter-denominational cathedral will be completed before the commissioning date.

However, a heavy security presence surrounded the cathedral, leading to the clash with the MPs right in front of the new Electoral Commission head office.

Both the Ghana Police Service and Military mounted barricades, restricting access to the entrance of the National Cathedral site.

In the midst of this standoff, the MP for the North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, took a satirical stance by commissioning the uncompleted National Cathedral project as a symbolic gesture aimed at highlighting the government’s perceived failure to finish the project.
