Rev. Kusi Boateng, secretary to the board of trustees of the National Cathedral Secretariat has dispelled rumours that the LGBTQ+ community had made some cash contribution to support the building of the National Cathedral project.
He has thrown a challenge to anyone with evidence of the said donation to bring it forth.
Speaking on Asaase FM Thursday (23 December), Rev. Kusi Boateng said, “Since this LGBTQ+ thing came in almost all the members of the board of trustees have come publicly to say we need this bill. So it will be conflicting for people to start circulating that the board of trustees have accepted the injection of monies from the LGBTQ+ community.
“So I say with authority that the LGBTQ+ community has never confronted us and has never given us a dollar. And if by chance anybody has any kind of evidence that the National Cathedral has received even a dollar from the LGBTQ+ community, I’ll resign the same day”
He, therefore, called on all Ghanaians to continue to support the National Cathedral project adding “all that I’m appealing to people is that let us all support. You can support by donating through *979#. We want one million Ghanaians to give us just GHC100 and some are giving us more than that.”
“The ownership [of the National Cathedral] is not for the government; ownership is for the Christian body although the government will be using the facility for state funerals, Christian gatherings and rentals for a lot of things,” Rev Boateng added.”
