“The cathedral was about 5500 capacity, well equipped with other components for non liturgical use.

“We thank the Catholic faithful in Nsukka diocese, good spirited individuals and organisations for their massive financial and moral support.

“This cathedral after dedication will represent the image of Nsukka,” he said.
