Rev Kusi Boateng To Sue Ablakwa
Rev Victor Kusi Boateng, an Executive Council Member of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral Ghana has disclosed his intentions to sue the Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.
The suit, he said, will take effect after the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) completes its investigations into the transfer of some funds by the state to his company.
Ablakwa alleges conflict of interest by Rev Kusi Boateng after discovering that the country made a payment of GHC2.6 million to one JNS Talent Centre Limited- a company co-owned by three identified as Johannes Eshun, Sheila Eshun and Kwabena Adu Gyamfi- in relation to the construction of the National Cathedral.
Further investigations led him to the discovery that Rev Kusi Boateng is the same as Kwabena Adu Gyamfi who co-owns JNS.
He also found that the pastor uses two different identities, has different TINs and operates different businesses with all his identities.
“For the avoidance of doubt, there is no distinct Kwabena Adu Gyamfi. Kwabena Adu Gyamfi is a criminal creation of Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng. The two are, therefore, one and the same,” Mr Ablakwa alleged in a statement on his Facebook wall.
In a press statement, the pastor described the allegations as defamation.
“I have taken note of some defamatory publications and allegations made against my person by Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, MP for North Tongu Constituency”, he said.
He continued, “I wish to assure the general public that the statements made by Mr Ablakwa are twisted narrations of events to pursue a malicious political agenda”.
He promised to give a public account of the issues after meeting CHRAJ and then sue the lawmaker.
“Additionally, when all is done, I will seek redress against Mr Ablakwa for his deliberate defamatory statements against me”.
In reaction to this, Ablakwa said he is ready for the suit.
“Now I am waiting for Kwabena Adu Gyamfi to also issue a statement and drag me to court”, he posted with three laughing emojis
