Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng, the founder of the Power Chapel Worldwide, says he will pursue legal action in response to the North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa’s “defamatory accusations.”
The troubled preacher said in a statement on Tuesday that he was aware of the MP’s accusations meant to damage his reputation.
He asserts that the legislator’s assertions are false.
He did add that he will refrain from making any more remarks in light of the NDC lawmaker’s referral of the matter to the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).
“I have taken note of some defamatory publications and allegations made against my person by Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, MP for North Tongu.
“I am also informed that Mr. Ablakwa has petitioned the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) to investigate the said allegations he has levelled against me.
“I wish to assure the general public that the statements made by Mr. Ablakwa are a twisted narration of events to pursue a malicious political agenda.
“There has never been any criminal intent nor any crime committed in my dealings with the Government of Ghana or the National Cathedral”, the theologian stressed.
“I look forward to the (CHRAJ) enquiry during which I will present my side of the matter to the Commission.
“I will subsequently also address the matters fully in public without first seeking to prejudice the public mind as he has done.
“Additionally, when all is done, I will seek redress against Mr. Ablakwa for his deliberate defamatory statements against me”, he noted.
Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng further pledged his commitment to the success of the construction of the National Cathedral, despite the impasse.
“I will continue to contribute my quota to the National Cathedral project and offer my services to the Country to the best of my ability”, Rev Kusi assured.
