I’m not an Anti-Christ – Okudzeto Ablakwa on National Cathedral crusade

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a member of parliament who represents the North Tongu seat, is defending himself against allegations that he is opposed to the construction of the National Cathedral.

 

According to him, all he wants to do is make sure people are held accountable by bringing up fundamental concerns in order to safeguard the state’s coffers.

 

The North Tongu politician has been leading a battle against the release of unbudgeted monies for the project, and some people have taken issue with this.

 

He claimed that the government had handed over a monumental sum, one of which was 32 million Ghana cedis to Sir David Adjaye & Associates Limited in 2021. This is a claim that the government has validated.

 

According to Mr. Ablakwa, the transfer of monies carried out by the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, is a “severe constitutional infraction.”

 

Since then, he has demanded that the Finance Minister be fired for operating in a manner that is inconsistent with the Constitution from 1992.

 

On the other hand, he has been ridiculed on social media for stirring up needless controversy around the construction of a temple dedicated to God.

 

In response to this on the Wednesday edition of the Ekosii Sen show on Asempa FM, Mr. Ablakwa stated that he is not the “Anti-Christ” as some people would have it seem.

 

He insisted that taking responsibility for one’s actions as a Christian and a Ghanaian and seeking accountability for such actions is a move in the right path.

 

Because he served as Vice President of the Scripture Union when he was a student at Presbyterian Boys Senior High School, he will be the very last person to argue against the implementation of such a plan.

 

The Member of Parliament for North Tongu pressed the point by saying, “We are all Christians, and I think God governs in the affairs of humanity; as a result, I will never oppose the building of a temple of God; but, we must fear God, and we must make sure that monies are not diverted.”

 

Mr. Ablakwa expressed concern that if certain matters are not clarified, the National Cathedral may become “more of a curse than a blessing.”
