North Tongu MP, Okudzeto Ablakwa, has accused the National Cathedral Board of Trustees’ Secretary, Rev. Kusi-Boateng of conflict of interest. The MP recently alleged the payment of GHS2.6 Million of cathedral funds to a company called JNS Talent Centre Limited.
Mr. Ablakwa says the company is owned by Rev. Johannes Eshun who describes himself as the spiritual son and protégé of Rev. Kusi-Boateng.
But in a Facebook post on Monday, January 16, the MP made fresh allegations against Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng, Founder of Power Chapel Worldwide. 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. Victor Kusi-Boateng might be using questionable means to divert funds from the National Cathedral Project.
“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.”
Mr. Ablakwa accused the Rev. Minister of using multiple passports with different names and dates of birth. He also accused him of having two Tax Identification Numbers (TIN) in violation of the Ghana Revenue Authority’s requirements.
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.
“From unassailable and irreproachable documents in my possession, Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng AKA Kwabena Adu Gyamfi uses multiple passports and multiple identification cards with different names and different dates of birth as his special modus operandi.”
“When JNS Talent Centre Limited was being incorporated, he submitted a passport with the name Kwabena Adu Gyamfi. The passport’s number is G0886001. At the time, he claimed his date of birth was 30th December 1969,” he said.
“For his driving license, he uses the name Boateng Victor Kusi. In a more bizarre twist, he uses a different date of birth which is captured as: 07/09/1971. This date of birth makes him about two years younger than what’s contained in his numerous Kwabena Adu Gyamfi passports.”
The MP is demanding the removal of the reverend minister from the National Cathedral Board of Trustees.
He says he will petition the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) on the conflict of interest allegation.
