Already, Mr. Ablakwa’s colleague MP for Ashaiman, Ernest Norgbey, is set to sue the government for sole-sourcing the architectural design contract for the National Cathedral to Sir David Adjaye and Associates Limited.
The North Tongu legislator, who has been vocal on the construction of the National Cathedral and the government’s financial commitment, wonders why such a religious project is being constructed through supposed shady deals.
“This is the Lord’s project and there is no righteousness, no holiness, no purity and no effort to show reverence to God and to respect our laws. These are the matters that we are totally outraged about, and we are serving notice that as a caucus, we take a very serious view to these matters, and we are going to delve into them and make sure that people answer the questions that have to be answered. If not, people will not take the Parliament of Ghana serious”, he stressed.
But the National Cathedral of Ghana has debunked the MP’s claims, insisting that the National Cathedral has been registered as a private entity.
Its Executive Director, Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah in a statement clarified that the project is a non-profit organisation owned by the state.
