The cathedral was dedicated by His Excellency, President Jonathan, who was presented with a sword by the Church. He was accompanied to the function by the Minister of Trade and Investment, Dr. Olusegun Aganga; the chaplain of the Presidential Villa, Rev. Obioma Onwuzurumba; Executive Secretary of the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission, Mr. John Opara; and his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati
Describing the Cathedral as an achievement of science, technology and the presence of God in the lives of Nigerians, Jonathan said "This beautiful Cathedral will remain a true bastion of glory to God Almighty and a shining example of love for human kind, standing on the Rock of the Lord forever and ever."
Present at the event also was Tony Blair, the Former Prime minister of UK. In a keynote address, Blair prayed for the Jonathan Administration in its effort to transform the lives of Nigerians, many of whom, he noted, are still poor. Blair was accompanied by his wife, Cherie.
Going back the memory lane, Blair said "in getting things done, the hardest thing I found is having an idea and transforming that idea into reality," adding "Making it happen and getting it done was tough."
Delivering his homily, Rev. Adefarasin, who described Blair as his mentor in the area of inter-faith, urged government to uphold equity and quality among citizens within the ambit of the rule of law, expressing the hope that Nigeria will be great. Ended the dedication with heaven opening prayer from his heart
