Akufo-Addo’s ‘Private’ Cathedral Sidelines Dag, Ex-Presby Moderator; It’s ‘Drowning In Sea of Lies’ – Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa

North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said: “Consolidation reports I have gotten from the Registrar General uncovered one more misleading case contained in the 7-page June 17, 2022 public statement by the National Cathedral Secretariat and endorsed by Executive Director, Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah”.

The resistance administrator expressed: “As opposed to the data gave in the said press explanation (see page 5) and on the Nicodemusly refreshed public house of prayer site (after we uncovered the Pastor Otabil trickery), such that all the Board of Trustees have been enrolled as Directors of the National Cathedral of Ghana; we note, shockingly, that the respected Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, Presiding Bishop of the Lighthouse Group of Churches; and the regarded Rev. Prof. Cephas Omenyo, previous Moderator of the Presbyterian Church, were not enlisted as chiefs on the joining date of eighteenth July, 2019”.

The two “venerated” ministers, Mr Okudzeto noted, “have, at every material time, been plainly forgotten about, and subbed with the accompanying names: Samuel Antwi and Kingsley Ofosu Ntiamoah”.

“Why then is the National Cathedral Secretariat deceiving the Ghanaian public and the world that every one of the distributed legal administrators are enlisted as chiefs?” he inquired.

“One contemplates whether Bishop Dag Heward-Mills and Rev. Prof. Cephas Omenyo know that notwithstanding the public deceptions, their names have been obviously precluded from the rundown of prominent enlisted chiefs?”

Mr Ablakwa, who has made a ton of reports on the public house of God project, said, in a Facebook post:

“Another disturbing lie we have recognized is that despite the fact that the June 17 public statement guarantees that the National Cathedral of Ghana is a ‘state-claimed organization’ and, consequently, a ‘public and not a private’ element, the consolidation records in our control uncovers rather inquisitively that the National Cathedral of Ghana is enlisted as private [entity]”.

“The rundown of deceptions, distortions, haziness, disorder and conspicuous debasement related with this church project is presently an abyss”, he noted.

“Christians in Ghana might need to proclaim a 40-day extreme fasting and supplication to cleanse and safeguard Akufo-Addo’s suffocating church of falsehoods”, Mr Ablakwa proposed.

About seven days prior, Prophet Dr Kofi Oduro of the Alabaster International Ministry said President Nana Akufo-Addo is reclaiming his own public house of prayer vow to God through falsehoods and misdirection.

As per Prophet Oduro, the President and the public authority said no public assets would be utilized for the basilica yet that has turned out not to be the case now.

Prophet Oduro, who says he upholds the possibility of a public basilica, notwithstanding, told OB Nartey on the lady release of No.1 FM’s early in the day show on Monday, 13 June 2022 that the manner in which the president and the public authority are going about it is off-base.

“Anyone who will say there is no requirement for a public house of prayer has overlooked what’s really important on the grounds that we have a public mosque. The pith and the requirement for a public church building is 100% wonderful however the manner in which we are going about it, if we don’t watch out, even Christians will say it irritates God”, he said.

“The manner in which government is approaching this entire thing; let me utilize the public mosque for instance: not a cedi of this country was utilized for the development of the public mosque. It was worked by the Turkish government and the Muslim people group in Ghana. For what reason might we at any point do likewise with the public house of prayer? For what reason would we say we will burden this on the country?”

“There are sure things that are not right. The president genuinely committed to God. That promise should be reclaimed yet not this system, not this technique”.

“The design is great. We want a public basilica [but] your procedure is off-base”, he told the president, demanding: “Totally off-base”.

“You let us know that state asset wouldn’t be utilized. Presently state reserves are required. That is duplicity. That is obviously false. You are building something for God”, he said.

In his view, President Akufo-Addo might have quite recently welcomed finance managers and ladies to the Jubilee House and put his subsidizing demand before them and wouldn’t believe that only one individual would have given $100,000,000 toward the development of the public basilica.

“Be that as it may, the manner in which we are going about it, we will drag the names of this large number of men of honesty on the leading body of the public church building into the mud”.

“We’ll annihilate their standing with this public basilica”, he cautioned. Preceding his Prophet Oduro’s remarks, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta had contemplated whether utilizing state assets to fabricate the public church that President Nana Akufo-Addo vowed to set up for God, assuming he won the administration, was excessively.

“Anytime when these structures were inherent Europe, was it ever the ideal opportunity? How would we reserve it will end up being the inquiry”, he asked in a meeting on state-possessed GTV on Sunday, 12 June 2022.

“Is the leader aware of the ongoing situation?We shouldn’t snuff out our legalism or otherworldliness since we are poor”, he noted.

“The Lord will comprehend assuming that we put our widow’s bug in there”, Mr Ofori-Atta noted. “That inquiry being posed is that: Are we burning through cash from state money vaults? Is that a lot to do in light of the fact that we are politicizing it? Do we truly need to stop it? That will be my inquiry.”

He said: “As a pastor of money, we are taking a gander at assets and the amount we put in there at each moment that is reasonable and, thus, presently, we have spent short of what one-thousandth of our consumption on that.”

“I’m exceptionally sure of raising income to have the option to subsidize this and afterward, more critically, if I need to investigate its financial aspects, I genuinely see a staggering limit that this will pay off.

“Normally, I am taking a gander at an inward pace of return, thus, we ought to place this at the top of the priority list”, the president’s cousin noted. Mr Ablakwa had claimed that on the 29th of October 2020, half a month prior to the public races, Mr Ofori-Atta, following up on a solicitation by President Akufo-Addo’s Chief of Staff, approved the arrival of GHS142,762,500.00 for public church building arranged exercises.

As per Mr Ablakwa, as opposed to lawful prerequisites, the public authority covered “this ginormous GHS142.7 million from Parliament as they purposely neglected to unveil this thing as a feature of their use returns of 2020 during the 2021 spending plan thought in Parliament.”

This 2020 church building consumption, the resistance MP noted, was additionally avoided the Auditor-General in his 2020 review.

In a different Facebook post, the legislator expressed up until this point, adding this most recent confession to his past releases, the Akufo-Addo government has burned through GHS199,832,603.00 of citizen supports on a house of prayer which was initially introduced to Ghanaians as an individual vow to God that won’t be executed with citizen reserves. Diving into the lots of records, Mr Ablakwa expressed that a lot more millions have been paid unlawfully which “we will keep on putting out to the brilliance of God and in the general public interest. On a further more frightening note, the figures we are presently surveying don’t seem as though anything close to a seed capital.”

He said this GHS200 million house of God entryway has ended up being the greatest official outrage in Ghana’s whole history.

He portrayed as “horrendously stunning”, how President Akufo-Addo and his men could take part in “such profane, unlawful and obtuse direct.”

For the sake of a church building project, Mr Ablakwa again claimed that a bad slush store has been made to siphon citizen assets from the enduring masses on the blindside of Parliament, the Auditor-General, CSOs and other responsibility frameworks. “Enlighteningly, these unlawful redirections occurred when the public authority was taken part in gigantic vote-purchasing to win the 2020 decisions; it was additionally the period COVID-19 had crested and put huge tension on our wellbeing conveyance as numerous Ghanaians kicked the bucket, but President Akufo-Addo guaranteed he was unable to track down the assets to satisfy his Agenda 111 promise of building new clinics,” he expressed.

Fresh Scandal Uncovered: Over $31M COVID-19 Theft At Ministry Of Communications Finally Exposed?; Details Dropped

Fresh Scandal Uncovered: Over $31M COVID-19 Theft At Ministry Of Communications Finally Exposed?; Details Dropped

The compilation of unassailable documents we are reviewing quite painstakingly confirm that for the 2020 and 2021 fiscal years, the Ghanaian taxpayer was saddled with a colossal US$36,061,637.62.

A breakdown of US$31,596,512.12 in 2020 and US$4,465,125.50 in 2021.

The total sum works out to an impressive GHS290million at current exchange.

The Finance Minister opened up to numerous expenditure items far lower than half of this (an example is the infamous serving of packed food which he claimed cost us GHS54million)

Unauthorized Use of Single Source Procurement Method.

In a 27th January, 2021 letter from the Public Procurement Authority (PPA) signed by the then Acting Chief Executive, Mr. Frank Mante — the PPA described the Minister of Communications and Digitalisation’s 2020 conduct as an ‘unauthorized use of the single source procurement method.’

Ghana’s Public Procurement Act, 2003 (Act 663) as Amended with (Act 914) makes adequate provision for how single-source procurement should be carried out in periods of emergency or during catastrophic events, however, none of those provisions were respected.

2020 Cabinet Approval

It is emerging from a letter dated 1st December, 2020 and signed by Deputy Minister for Finance at the time, Hon. Charles Adu Boahen that Cabinet approved only US$8million for the Smart Workplace Project.

It remains a mystery how the Communications Minister defied this Cabinet decision and proceeded to award a US$31.5million contract.

Company Track Record

Our indisputable findings reveal that Smart Infraco Limited had absolutely no track record before being handed the lucrative, albeit illegal contract.

The company was incorporated as recently as 9th October, 2019 – a few months before signing the Smart Workplace sweetheart deal of March 25, 2020.

Nigerian Connection and Domination of Sector

It is disheartening to observe that despite the many celebrated Ghanaian indigenous IT firms which are globally sought after, Smart Infraco Limited with absolutely no track record that measures up with Ghanaian tech companies is the most preferred by government when its promoters and lead directors are Nigerians.

As a Pan Africanist, I would have had no reservations per se, were they a company with a proven track record and basic respect for our procurement laws.

Interestingly, it’s lead director, Angela Onwuka who signed the notorious March 25, 2020 Agreement, publicly admits she has no IT background. She claims to be a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria (ICAN).

Her powerful Nigerian backers led by the ever shadowy and elusive Philip Olaiya now dominate and totally control government contracts in the Ghanaian IT ecosystem. They have recently floated another company known as Ascend Digital Solutions Limited which like Smart Infraco is outsmarting the uninitiated and unconnected. With this new vehicle, they are poised for a firmer grip and an even much bigger lion’s share. From the opaque Kelni GVG deal; enhanced e-Government Infrastructure project dated 2nd November, 2020; World Bank US$115million eTransform Ghana Project; to the new Airtel Tigo Ghana Limited and Ascend Digital Solutions JV created to grab the Exim-China/ABSA Bank €164.9million Ghana Rural Telephony and Digital Inclusion Project — a deal we shall discuss in detail another day; the illegal and unpatriotic state capture by abominable proportions ought to be condemned and dismantled.

Final Observations

How many other dubious COVID-19 expenditure items did the Finance Minister conceal from Parliament and the Ghanaian people?

What is the true total COVID-19 expenditure?

When will Government sanction and prosecute its own officials violating our procurement laws with utter impunity?

Parliament’s special joint committee of Finance and Health about to forensically probe COVID-19 expenditure has the most crucial mandate in Ghana’s entire parliamentary history.

For a government that has initiated prosecution on procurement charges leading to people languishing in jail; a government still prosecuting political opponents for alleged procurement breaches; an Akufo-Addo presidency happy to serve as a willing conveyor belt leading to the removal of an Electoral Commissioner who declared him winner of the 2016 elections — the current developments and countless cases of procurement infractions all make for a fascinating future ahead of us.”
