National Cathedral Is A Monumental Rot – Okudzeto Ablakwa

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu in the Volta Region, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has characterized the National Cathedral as simply a monumental rot.

According to him, the project is shaping up to be a gargantuan presidential scandal with no parallel in the nation’s political history.

The accusation is borne out of his unproven allegation that the National Cathedral has been registered as a private entity contrary to the assertion that it is a national project.

The North Tongu lawmaker has vowed to push for a bi-partisan parliamentary probe of the matter, bashing the government for disrespecting and taking Ghanaians for granted.

The claim by Mr. Ablakwa that the National Cathedral has been registered as a private entity has been discounted.

Dr. Paul Opoku Mensah, Executive Secretary of the National Cathedral of Ghana, has rebuked the MP for peddling absolute untruths about the national project.

He finds it deeply disturbing Mr. Ablakwa’s ridiculous claim that the National Cathedral has been registered as a private entity, something he dismissed as palpably false – a complete lie.

Dr. Opoku Mensah said if indeed there had been serious breaches – wrongdoings, the North Tongu MP should know what to do. He asked why Mr. Ablakwa is not asking for investigations by the appropriate state institutions.

“I understand the political context, the competition in politics, but really there is a certain threshold we should not fall under.”

The MP should not be allowed to get away with the peddling of untruths and making all sorts of unsubstantiated allegations without providing a shred of evidence.

He noted that the issues that are being recklessly bandied around could sink the country.

Dr. Opoku Mensah questioned why Ablakwa continues to be unrepentant in digging dirt on the President and other dignified personalities associated with the National Cathedral.
