Rev. John Osei Ofori- founder and leader of Counsel of God Church has dragged to the refuse calls for the dissolution of the entire Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral following allegations levelled against Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng.
Though the credibility of executives and members of the Board is presently hanging in the balance, the Kumasi-based priest has opined that “assuming the charges of conflict of interest raised by Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency against the Secretary to the Board are true, the offender (Rev. Kusi Boateng) is the one to be dealt with and not the board.”
He noted in an interview with www.leakynews.net that dissolving the Board and abrogating the national cathedral project as a result of one’s inactions will be an unwise decision.
The Reverend Minister expatiated that the allegations should they be true are one man’s offenses and must be handled on that basis.
He also expressed that he is unhappy with how the National Cathedral project has been politicized and opposed by the NDC and even some members of the Christian denomination.
The Kumasi-based man of God told this medium that he was completely shuddered when heard critics tongue lashing President Akuffo Addo that his hands are not clean enough to build a cathedral for God.
Rebutting Biblically, he explained that though Biblical character David, ancient King of Israel was disallowed by God when he planned building God’s temple, his son Solomon who built the temple used materials that were provided by his father David.
“The building materials were made available by David whose hands were stained with human blood but God saw nothing wrong with the utilization of same for the building of his temple”.
Rev. John Osei Ofori therefore admonished the opposition to give up on their political mannerisms towards the project ” and allow President Akuffo-Addo to fulfil his promise to God”.
