The executive director of the National Cathedral project, Paul Opoku-Mensah has said the claims by Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams and Rev Eastwood Anaba as the basis for their resignation from the board are based on “false” grounds.
In January 2023, the two clergymen called for the immediate suspension and audit of the cathedral project to allow for an audit.
In a letter to President Akufo-Addo, they said they have awaited news, but to no avail, regarding the finding of the audit hence the decision to resign.
“Despite our prayers, best hopes and wishes, unfortunately, a needed audit to help restore public confidence and trust in this consequential project has not been enacted to the best of our knowledge.
“Since January 2023, we awaited news, to no avail, regarding the finding of the audit. We, therefore, regret that as a matter of conscience and faith, we hereby submit to you our resignation from the board of trustees of the National Cathedral,” the letter stated.
Reacting to the claims, Executive director of the National Cathedral project, Dr. Opoku-Mensah said there was an ongoing audit by Deloitte and that the claim by the two respected clergymen that nothing had been done about contracting an independent audit firm to audit the Cathedral’s activities cannot be true.
