Kwame A Plus has called out members of the National Cathedral Board of Trustees to speak to matters around the project.

Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral

Over the past weeks, there have been speculations of corruption and theft of state funds over the National Cathedral initiative. According to A Plus, Archbishop Duncan Williams, Rev Dr Joyce Aryee, Bishop Dag Heward-Mills and the rest mus resign as members of the Board of Trustees.

The political activist emphasized that the National Cathedral project has been shrouded in too many unhealthy matters and the respected people on the board must speak out in order to distance themselves from the scandals.

The first day I met Archbishop Duncan Williams… he is a great guy and one of the pillars of this country but my father the archbishop is quiet over these Cathedral issues, he must speak up. Dag Heward-Mills (must speak)," he said.

A Plus was speaking on United Showbiz where he continued that “if it true that people are stealing funds, they shouldn’t be part of the board. Because if we are building a temple for God and you are all donating your service for free and people are being corrupt on the side".

"Eastwood Anaba, Madam Joyce Aryee … it is not going well,” A Plus emphasized.

The National Cathedral project has come under intense public scrutiny after it was revealed that state funds are being used for the project described as President Akufo-Addo’s personal promise to God.

According to North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, nearly GH₵200 million of the taxpayers’ money has so far been spent on the project yet construction works on the Cathedral site have stalled due to the unavailability of funds.

The Minority in Parliament has therefore called for the Finance Minister to appear before the House to answer questions on the release of GHC25 million to the National Cathedral Secretariat as additional seed money for the project.
