Heward-Mills, others who left remain committed to Nat’l Cathedral – Secretariat

The National Cathedral Secretariat has said that although Bishop Dag Heward Mills and others voluntarily left the Trusteeship, they still remain committed to the vision of the project and want to see it completed to God’s glory.

It is recalled that North Tongu Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa who has constantly made corruption revelations about the project asked the Secretariat to explain why Bishop Dag Heward-Mills left the National Cathedral Board.

“The Cathedral Secretariat by this statement confirms that Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng is indeed Kwabena Adu Gyamfi despite the different dates of birth, multiple TINs & addresses.

“Too many juvenile lies! Why claim the Board is focused when the respected Bishop Dag Heward-Mills has left?” he tweeted while stating that the statement which was issued by the National Cathedral Secretariat responding to his revelation on alleged illegal payments totaling GHC 2.6m to a company called JNS actually confirms his revelation,” Mr Ablakwa said.

In response, the Secreatrait in a statement issued on Thursday Janury 19 said “One of the key strengths of the National Cathedral Project is the Board of Trustees, made up of some of the key, pioneering leaders of the church in Ghana, and whose work on the project is contributing to improved inter-church relations in the country.

“These church leaders, the Board of Trustees, have pioneered and/or lead vibrant churches with global reach and impact.

“These churches and their leaders not only have deep-seated theological differences, but also different understanding and approaches to the development of the National Cathedral.

“The challenge of such a group is that individual leaders, with a history of implementing their own organizational /denominational programs and vision, have to be part of a collective decision-making process where their preferences might not always prevail. Specifically, this means that no one leader can have all their preferences, methods, approaches accepted. In this changed and unfamiliar context, some would prefer to leave the Trusteeship.

“This notwithstanding, we are grateful that all the Trustees — including Bishop Dag Heward-Mills who voluntarily left the Trusteeship — still remain committed to the vision of the National Cathedral and want to see it completed to God’s glory.”
