The Minority in Parliament is demanding that Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta be hauled before the House to answer questions on how GH¢25 million was advanced to the National Cathedral Secretariat for the construction of the Cathedral.

The Minority says the National Cathedral project is not a government project and wonders how public funds will be used for it.

Speaking on the floor of the House, MP for Adaklu Governs Kwame Agboza said the Finance Minister has a lot of questions to answer.

"I will demand that the exceptionally delicate issue about government's consumption on the National Cathedral which has been in open space and installment produced using the public money vaults is examined. I accept it will be in light of a legitimate concern for this country for the Finance Minister to brief the house on the conditions prompting the expenditure of that consumption since it is accepted that those uses could be out of what the public obtainment and the Public Financial Management Act requires.

The Minority in Parliament documented three pressing inquiries to propel the Minister for Finance to give subtleties on how much the state has spent on the National Cathedral Project.

It followed the circulation of a letter indicating the release of an additional GH¢25 million from national coffers for the project as additional seed money.
