The Executive Director of the National Cathedral project, Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah, has denied media reports that Dr. Mensa Otabil, one of the Members of its Board of Trustees resigned from the Board due to illegalities.
In a statement, he said prior to the registration of the members of the Board of Trustees in 2019, Dr. Otabil opted out since “he could not give the needed attention to the project.”
He explained that Dr. Otabil has not been a member of the Board of Trustees since 2019, due to his unwillingness to register to be part of the Board of Trustees.
“So, Dr. Mensa Otabil did not resign from the Board as being alleged, but excused himself at the point of registration of the Directors in July, 2019. For the avoidance of all doubt, Dr. Otabil has not been a member of the Board of Trustees since July, 2019,” the statement read in part.
The statement quickly added that Dr. Mensa Otabil, “nonetheless remains actively interested in the project and continues to share his views on strategy with the Secretariat.”
