The Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral has engaged the services of an international accounting firm, Delloitte to subject the project to a statutory audit..
“The Board is already in discussions to engage Deloitte, which accepted to be the auditors when the National Cathedral was registered, to commence the normal statutory audit”, the Board through its Chairman, Apostle Prof.
Thus, if Parliament so desires, it may set up a commission or appoint an independent auditor to review all issues concerning the award of contract, procurement, construction works and financial operations of the National Cathedral project so far
“The Board of Trustees is also prepared to be subjected to any form of probe by state institutions including the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ)”.
The construction of the National Cathedral has been one of the most controversial projects undertaken by the Akufo-Addo administration.
Eastwood Anaba, President of the Eastwood Anaba Ministries, have called for an immediate suspension of the construction of the National Cathedral pending an audit of the project.
“The current economic climate in Ghana presents obstacles to the timely construction and completion of the National Cathedral… We, therefore, resolve: That in the spirit and cause of transparency and accountability to the Ghanaian people, the current Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral shall appoint an independent, nationally recognized accounting firm to audit all public funds contributed to and spent by the National Cathedral,” the two clergymen said.
