The secretary to the board of trustees of the National Cathedral Secretariat, Rev. Kusi Boateng has come out to clear the rumors that the National Cathedral has taken money from the LGBTQ+ community.
People have been spreading rumors that the LGBTQ+ community has given some amount of money to support the National Cathedral project that’s why they are supporting them.
Rev. Kusi Boateng disclosed on Asaase FM on Thursday, December 23, that he has thrown a challenge to anyone with evidence that they have taken any money from the LGBTQ+ community should come out.
In his own words: “Since this LGBTQ+ thing came in almost all the members of the board of trustees have come publicly to say we need this bill. So it will be conflicting for people to start circulating that the board of trustees has accepted the injection of monies from the LGBTQ+ community.
“So I say with authority that the LGBTQ+ community has never confronted us and has never given us a dollar. And if by chance anybody has any kind of evidence that the National Cathedral has received even a dollar from the LGBTQ+ community, I’ll resign the same day”
“all that I’m appealing to people is that let us all support. You can support by donating through *979#. We want one million Ghanaians to give us just GHC100 and some are giving us more than that.”
“The ownership [of the National Cathedral] is not for the government; ownership is for the Christian body although the government will be using the facility for state funerals, Christian gatherings, and rentals for a lot of things,” Rev Boateng added.”
