The Minority in Parliament wants the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta be dragged before the House to answer questions on how GH¢25 million was allocated to the National Cathedral Secretariat for the construction of the Cathedral.
Speaking on the floor of the House, MP for Adaklu Governs Kwame Agboza said the Finance Minister must appear before the House to answer a lot of questions to answer.
He said is not a government project and wonders how public funds will be used for it.
“I will request that the very sensitive issue about government’s expenditure on the National Cathedral of which has been in public domain and payment made from the public coffers is discussed. I believe it will be in the interest of this country for the Finance Minister to brief the house on the circumstances leading to the spending of that expenditure because it is believed that those expenditures could be out of what the public procurement and the Public Financial Management Act requires.”
The Minority in Parliament has filed three urgent questions to compel the Minister for Finance to provide details on how much the state has spent on the National Cathedral Project.
