Rev Kusi-Boateng has been out of public eye since Ablakwa's exposé

In January 2023, a major scandal hit the National Cathedral project as its secretary, Rev Victor Kusi-Boateng (as indicated on the project's website) was accused of using multiple identities.

MP for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa disclosed that Rev Kusi-Boateng is the same person on the board of JNS Talent Centre Ltd identified as Kwabena Adu Gyamfi.

Before this revelation, Ablakwa had raised an alarm about a questionable GH¢2.6 million paid to JNS Talent Centre by the National Cathedral Board.

Amid Ablakwa's publication of documents to back his claim that the appointee of President Nana Akufo-Adoo to the Cathedral Board was a fraud, Rev Kusi-Boateng went into hiding and was working through his attorneys to fight the MP.

Also, lawyers for Rev Victor Kusi-Boateng later stormed the high court to file a motion seeking to end Ablakwa's exposés against him.

The secretary to the board of trustees of the National Cathedral project wants the MP to stop releasing further public information about him.

In the writ filed at the Human Rights division of the high court on Friday, February 3, 2023, Ablakwa is the first respondent and the Attorney-General is the second respondent.
