North Tongu Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has counseled Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams and Rev. Eastwood Anaba for the place they’ve taken on the National Cathedral challenge.
In a tweet, Mr Ablakwa mentioned “Profound commendations to Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams and Rev. Eastwood Anaba for their principled and patriotic position on the scandal-dominated National Cathedral project. Exemplary Christ-like leadership, wisdom & integrity worthy of high praise. Ghana first”
His feedback come after Mr Duncan Williams and Rev Eastwood Anaba who’re all eminent members of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral challenge have referred to as for the suspension of the challenge for an audit to be completed into its accounts.
Portions of a memo they wrote to the board mentioned “That within the spirit and reason for transparency and accountability to the Ghanaian folks, the present Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral shall appoint an impartial, nationally recognised accounting agency to audit all public funds contributed to and spent by the National Cathedral.
“Auditors will also audit the overall cost of the project. This appointment of an auditor shall take place before the deferment of activities of the Board of Trustees.”
The memo added, “That current activities advancing the construction of Ghana’s National Cathedral shall be deferred until the atmospherics in Ghana are improved and the audit of the Cathedral account is done.”
The place of the senior clergymen got here after Mr Ablakwa made a collection of allegations in opposition to the Secretary to the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral, Rev Kusi Boateng.
Mr Ablakwa introduced what he described as “unimpeachable” and “incontrovertible” proof in opposition to him.
According to the opposition lawmaker, Rev Kusi Boateng is the third “mystery” director of JNS Talent Cantre Limited, a agency he had earlier accused of receiving GH¢2.6 million unlawful money switch from the Secretariat.
“Unimpeachable and incontrovertible evidence confirms that Mr. Kwabena Adu Gyamfi is the famous Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng who still serves on the National Cathedral Board as an Executive Council Member/Director,” he mentioned.
For the avoidance of doubt, he added, there isn’t any distinct Kwabena Adu Gyamfi. Kwabena Adu Gyamfi is a prison creation of Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng.
The two are due to this fact one and the identical, he mentioned.
“Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng AKA Kwabena Adu Gyamfi thought he had outwitted every Ghanaian, particularly our authorities whom he dribbled for many years; but the day of reckoning is finally here.”
Mr Ablakwa additional petitioned the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice ( CHRAJ) to look into the matter.
But responding to him in a press release, Rev Kusi Boateng who denied the allegations mentioned he appears to be like ahead to CHRAJ’s probe.
“I wish to assure the public that the statement made by Mr Ablakwa are a twisted narration of events to pursue a malicious political agenda. There has never been any criminal intent nor any crime committed in my dealings with the government of Ghana or National Cathedral,” he mentioned.
