Finance Minister to face Parliament over National Cathedral project expenditure today

The Minister of Finance, Mohammed Amin Adam, will appear before Parliament today, Wednesday, July 3, to provide a detailed account of the expenses incurred on the national cathedral project.

This follows a question by the Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzato Ablakwa, seeking clarification on the expenditures made on the project.

The Deputy Majority Leader, Patricia Appiagyei, has filed an urgent question demanding a breakdown of expenses and whether a value-for-money audit was conducted on the project.

The Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo Markin, assured that the government will adhere to proper financial structures in the Finance Ministry for such an important project.

The National Cathedral of Ghana, a planned interdenominational Christian cathedral, is part of Ghana’s 60th anniversary celebration. The design was unveiled by President Nana Akufo-Addo in March 2018. The site will also feature a music school, art gallery, and a museum dedicated to the Bible.

The government’s transparency in managing public funds for the project is under scrutiny, and the Finance Minister’s appearance in Parliament is expected to provide clarity on the matter.
