A member of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral, Rev. Dr. Joyce Aryee says the Founder and General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) has never been an active member of a National Cathedral Board despite his selection by the president.
According to her, Pastor Mensa Otabil earlier opted to leave the board before they were officially inducted into office.
Madam Joyce Aryee who was speaking on NEAT FM’s afternoon political show, Me Man N’ti revealed that Pastor Mensa Otabil’s reason for leaving the board was related to his ministry.
“When we were called to form the board, the first person who opted to leave because he was also building his church was Pastor Mensah Otabil. He doesn’t want any conflict so he stepped aside. He was never part of us who were incorporated into office.” She lamented
