In the wake of the numerous alleged scandals surrounding the construction of the National Cathedral, Member of Parliament for North Tongu in the Volta Region, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is appealing to the Christian community in Ghana to remember the national monument in prayers.
Okudzeto Ablakwa says considering how President Akufo-Addo and his government have tainted the house of God with unending lies, the cathedral needs massive purging to redeem it from the lies.
The Member of Parliament is therefore appealing to all Christians in Ghana to dedicate 40 days of fasting and prayers for the cathedral which he claims has been built on lies upon lies.
In his recent Facebook expose’ sighted by ABC News, the ardent critic of President Akufo-Addo’s government noted that “the list of falsehoods, misrepresentations, opacity, lawlessness and blatant corruption associated with this cathedral project is now a bottomless pit. Christians in Ghana may have to declare a 40-day intense fasting and prayer to purge and rescue Akufo-Addo’s drowning cathedral of lies.”
Justifying the need for such action from Christians with a new revelation about the Cathedral, Mr. Ablakwa explained that “contrary to the information provided in the 7-page June 17, 2022 press release by the National Cathedral Secretariat and signed by Executive Director, Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah on the nicodemously updated national cathedral website to the effect that all the Board of Trustees have been registered as Directors of the National Cathedral of Ghana; we note surprisingly, that the venerable Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, Presiding Bishop of the Lighthouse Group of Churches and the esteemed Rev. Prof. Cephas Omenyo, Former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church were not registered as directors on the incorporation date of 18th July, 2019.”
He added that the two revered clergymen have at all material times been clearly left out, and substituted with the following names: Samuel Antwi and Kingsley Ofosu Ntiamoah.
He continued that, “another troubling falsehood we have detected is that even though the June 17 press release claims that the National Cathedral of Ghana is a “state-owned company” and thus a “public and not a private” entity, the incorporation documents in our possession reveals rather curiously that the National Cathedral of Ghana is registered as PRIVATE.”
On these basis of these alleged lies and other ones exposed earlier, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is appealing for an intervention by the Christians in the country.
