National Cathedral: Use Your Own Money, Not Public Funds – Domelevo to Akufo-Addo



Former Auditor General Daniel Yaw Domelevo expressed concern over the National Cathedral’s construction using public cash.

He contends that since Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made a commitment to God in exchange for being elected president, the project’s idea originated from him and should not be funded by the government.

Daniel Domelevo challenged the Ministry of Finance’s use of money from the Contingency Vote to pay for some of the project in an interview with Joy News.

Domelevo believed that the practice was wrong and unsustainable, and that everyone should reject it.

“I find the expenditure for that transaction very unfortunate. At no point should we be using public funds to fund individual people’s needs or desires. If the president desires to build a cathedral for God, he should go ahead and use his money not public funds. Even if he wants to use public funds, the constitution has laid down procedure for the use of public funds especially from the Consolidated Funds. Article 1 states that it must be in the budget approved by Parliament,” he said.

The National Cathedral has been embroiled in numerous disputes, with the most recent claim being that Reverend Kusi Boateng, a member of the cathedral’s Board of Trustees, received an improper payment.

The North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is on a mission to expose what he believes to be improper payments of state cash to certain people and groups engaged in the Cathedral’s construction.

Ablakwa set out on a quest to identify the individuals behind the organization after learning of an initial allegation that a whopping GH2.6 million was given to a company called JNS Talent Centre Limited.

An individual named Kwabena Adu Gyamfi was identified as the director of JNS Talent Centre as a result of Ablakwa’s inquiries into the claimed payment.

After establishing the names of two of the center’s three directors, Ablakwa set out on a mission to identify the third director, Kwabena Adu Gyamfi.

His conclusions, which were supported by a number of legal documents, claim that Kwabena Adu Gyamfi is the same as Reverend Kusi Boateng, who has supposedly been using the alias Kwabena Adu Gyamfi.

Reverend Kusi Boateng allegedly has many passports and identification cards, some of which have the name Kwabena Adu Gyamfi, according to a bombshell series of charges made by Ablakwa, which he refers to as the Tsar Bomba of all controversies.
