The National Cathedral Secretariat has said that the National Cathedral of Ghana was registered as a company limited by guarantee, to be used as the instrument for the construction and management of the National Cathedral.
The company was legally registered on 18th July 2019.
The Board of Trustees, according to the Secretariat, had to be registered as the Directors of the company.
“A member of the Trustees, Dr Mensa Otabil, the General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church, had indicated that he couldn’t give the needed attention to the project so didn’t register.
“So, Dr Mensa Otabil did not resign from the Board as being alleged, but excused himself at the point of registration of the Directors in July 2019. For the avoidance of all doubt, Dr Otabil has not been a member of the Board or Trustees since July 2019. Dr Mensa Otabil, nonetheless, remains actively interested in the project and continues to share his views on strategy with the Secretariat,” a statement issued by the Secretariat on Friday June 17 said.
This comes at a time North Tongu Member of Parliament Okudzato said Dr Mensa Otabil was no more with the Board.
“There is quite an uneasy calm among the Board of Trustees. And I can confirm to you that one imminent priest has walked away from the Board; the revered Dr Mensa Otabil is no longer with them.
“The whole year, he has not attended any of their meetings. It is not clear what his intention was, but he has given indication that all is not well,” Mr Ablakwa said.
