Lawyer and North East Regional Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sulley Sambian, clashed with North Tongu Member of Parliament (MP) Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa over dodging accusations he made against Prophet Kusi Boateng, secretary of the Board of Trustees that oversees the construction of the National Cathedral.
The lawyer argued, after Okudzeto Ablakwa published new evidence showing that Kusi Boateng has two tax identification numbers (TIN numbers), that the problem had nothing to do with the possession of two tax identification numbers (TIN numbers), but with the two key problems of illegality. payments to Rev. Kusi Boateng’s company and his alleged double identity.
These key issues, argued lawyer Sambian, have not been proven by Okudzeto Ablakwa.
“You had problems with him for getting money paid to his company from the Cathedral account for not doing any work. It turned out that his company had actually lent money for the cathedral project when they were in financial straits. As far as we are concerned, he has yet to satisfactorily or at all refute what the cathedral board said about the 2.6 million cedis.
He also took issue with the use of two names: Victor Kusi Boateng and KWABENA Adu-Gyamfi. Here too, he has miserably failed to convince us that he intended to hide his identity in order to commit a crime or commit fraud,” he stressed.
He then warned against damaging people’s reputations for political reasons.
“I think that Paul Adom Otchere’s explanation and the citation of legal authorities to support his arguments are more reasonable.
See, reputation is not easy to build. At all times we must be cautious when we are “politically tempted” to drag people’s reputations into the mire.
It’s okay to disagree about the need to build a cathedral; it’s certainly not okay to simply send others to the gutters for cheap populist political points.
You are free to assume that we are gullible, but we are not that gullible,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, the Reverend Kusi Boateng in a sermon has intimidated that the exposure of Mr. Okudzeto Ablakwa is part of the dangers of doing his job as Secretary of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral.
