“Don’t Waste Your Time Fighting On Facebook; I’ll go through this honourably”- Rev. Kusi Boateng Tells Church Members

The Secretary to the National Cathedral Board of Trustees, Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng, has urged his church members not to fight on Facebook over the wild allegations made against him.

The Founder of the Power Chapel Church, preaching on Sunday, encouraged his members with Psalm 34:19, which says, ‘Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers them out of them all.’

“I promise you, I will go through this honourably. Everyone of you should relax, be happy and don’t waste your time fighting on Facebook.”

“When you heard that I have been given an appointment, you were all happy; how can I go up without fighting the demons?” he asked his members.

Rev. Kusi-Boateng has given his initial response to the claims by the North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto. He says the allegations are inaccurate.

The Allegations

Mr. Ablakwa recently alleged the payment of GHS2.6 million of cathedral funds to a company called JNS Talent Centre Limited.

He says Rev. Kusi-Boateng is among the three directors of JNS Talent Centre but uses the name, Kwabena Adu Gyamfi.

The MP suspects Rev. Kusi-Boateng might be using questionable means to divert funds from the National Cathedral Project. Mr. Ablakwa also accused him of using multiple passports with different names and dates of birth.

He says the pastor also uses two Tax Identification Numbers (TIN) in violation of the Ghana Revenue Authority’s requirements.

“For the avoidance of doubt, there is no distinct Kwabena Adu Gyamfi. Kwabena Adu Gyamfi is a criminal creation of Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng. The two are therefore one and the same.”

He alleged that at different times, the pastor has travelled with both passports. The MP says he will question the Foreign Affairs Minister to justify why the pastor holds a diplomatic passport.

The MP has thus demanded the removal of the reverend minister from the National Cathedral Board of Trustees. Mr. Ablakwa has petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice to probe the pastor for conflict of interest.

The pastor stated his committment to the CHRAJ probe.

“I wish to assure the general public that the statements made by Mr. Ablakwa are a twisted narration of events to pursue a malicious political agenda. There has never been any criminal intent nor any crime committed in my dealings with the Government of Ghana or the National Cathedral.”

He said he’ll “address the matters fully in public without first seeking to prejudice the public mind as he has done.”

“I have taken note of some defamatory publications and allegations made against my person by Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, MP for North Tongu. I look forward to the (CHRAJ) enquiry during which I will present my side of the matter to the Commission.”

Nonetheless, the Reverend Minister pledged his commitment to the success of the construction of the National Cathedral.

“I will continue to contribute my quota to the National Cathedral project and offer my services to the Country to the best of my ability.”
