Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the ranking member of the Foreign Affairs Committee of Parliament, maintains that all of the data he has presented regarding the National Cathedral is “fact” rather than the product of some sterile imagination.

He claims that “painstaking work” is to blame.

The North Tongu Member of Parliament (MP) said on Monday, May 8, on New Day on TV3, that US officials had already started looking into the problems with the registration of the National Cathedral of Ghana and the Bible Museum Foundation, Inc. in the US.

He told anchor Berla Mundi, “I can promise you that the US authorities have started inquiries.

In order to learn more about the registration and operation of the National Cathedral project, Mr. Okudzeto Ablakwa recently travelled to the United States of America.

The registered directors of the project in the US were accused of covering things up by a National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmaker in a serialised publication.

He claimed that $63,978 had been declared as monies raised in Oklahoma State, where Dr. Vernon Darko, Eric Okyere Darko, and Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah registered the initiative.

The former deputy minister of education claimed that neither the amount nor its existence had ever been revealed to Ghanaians or included in any reports submitted to Parliament.

“What was done with this money, and where is it now? When will the people of Ghana learn the total amount of money raised in the US, and how reliable will that number be given the egregious levels of secrecy, systemic wrongdoings, and appalling corporate governance?”

On Monday, May 8, he noted that the project will face a tax-exemption prohibition since its registration documents used the name of a purportedly deceased individual, Jose Salgado.

He asserted, “There was obviously fraudulent contact.”
