In a statement released on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, Dr Opoku-Mensah said the Board had previously rejected a resolution from Duncan-Williams and Rev Anaba dated January 23, because they deemed it redundant and an attempt to politicise the project.
“The audit, conducted by Deloitte, is underway, and the Secretariat is fully cooperating to ensure its timely completion,” the statement said.
The Secretariat said there are attempts to politicise and spread misinformation about the National Cathedral.
The statement said the Secretariat remains steadfast in its commitment to upholding integrity and transparency.
The findings of the audit, performed by Deloitte, will be made public, reflecting the project's genuine objectives and intentions, it said.
