Opposition Member of Parliament for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has released more damaging allegations about the National Cathedral project in a Facebook post on May 4, 2023.
Along with photos of what appears to be credible correspondence with US state authorities, Ablakwa has disclosed that an entity of the National Cathedral of Ghana has been registered in the United States of America with a dead man's identity.
He claims that the March 2021 incorporation documents of the National Cathedral of Ghana and Bible Museum Foundation, Inc in Washington, D.C. were executed with the identity of one Jose Salgado.
Jose Salgado, a man with many aliases, died in 2014, Ablakwa disclosed in what he calls "Episode 2" of the "SOA Oversight". SOA are his initials.

National Cathedral Secretariat accused of identity theft
The May 4, 2023, Facebook post by the opposition National Democratic Congress lawmaker said the use of a fake identity of a deceased person to register a non-profit affiliated with the National Cathedral project represents a grave crime.
"The Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act of 1998 (ITADA), which amended Title 18 of the United States Code (18 U.S.C. § 1028) to include specific provisions related to identity theft is a really dreaded law.
"Many have been convicted for the crime of identity theft in cases where they have wrongfully acquired another person’s Personal Identifying Information for fraud or deception for economic gain," he warned.
He went on to state that the Employer ID Number for the National Cathedral of Ghana and Bible Museum Foundation, Inc is: 86-3859197, which is the same as the Social Security Number of Jose Salgado.
"It has therefore emerged beyond any scintilla of doubt that the Social Security Number of a deceased young male Hispanic who died 9 years ago was fraudulently used to incorporate Ghana’s national cathedral in Washington, D.C," he stated.
Ablakwa urges Akufo-Addo to dissolve National Cathedral board, probe allegations
Okudzeto Ablakwa wants Akufo-Addo to pull the brakes on the National Cathedral project and probe all the allegations of corruption and underhand dealing that he and others have brought against the national project.
"It’s purely incredulous that these grave crimes would be associated to the building of the Lord’s Temple," he said.
