Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the member of parliament for North Tongu, has requested that the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) look into allegations of conflict of interest, the use of multiple identities, and other alleged criminal activity against Reverend Victor Kusi-Boateng, the secretary of the National Cathedral Board of Trustees.
The petition, which the two Deputy Commissioners of CHRAJ received yesterday, further stated that Rev. Kusi-Bateng, under his other name, Kwabena Adu Gyamfi, transferred money worth GH2.6 million from the National Cathedral Secretariat to JNS Talent Centre Limited.
The petition sought to use the authority of CHRAJ under Article 218 of the 1992 Constitution to investigate the “odious conflict of interest” in regard to Rev. Victor Kusi- Boateng’s position on the national cathedral board because he “literally paid his own company a staggering GH2.6million for no work done,” according to Mr. Ablakwa, who confirmed the petition’s submission to the Daily Graphic yesterday.
According to Mr. Ablakwa, Kwabena Adu Gyamfi, who was given the GH2.6 million by the national cathedral board, is the same person as Rev. Kusi-Boateng, who is also the founder of Power Chapel Worldwide.
“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 that preceded the petition.
Mr Ablakwa said documents revealed that two other persons, Sheila Eshun and Kwabena Adu Gyamfi were also directors of JNS Talent Centre Limited.
“From unassailable and irreproachable documents in my possession, Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng, aka Kwabena Adu Gyamfi, uses multiple passports and multiple identification cards with different names and different dates of birth as his special modus operandi.
“When JNS Talent Centre Limited was being incorporated, he submitted a passport with the name Kwabena Adu Gyamfi. The passport’s number is G0886001. At the time, he claimed his date of birth was December 30 1969,” he said.
Another matter of interest for Mr Ablakwa is that “when the National Cathedral of Ghana was being incorporated on the July 19, 2019; Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng used his driving licence for the registration.”
Deeper inquiries, according to the MP, reveal a number of businesses that Rev. Kusi-Boateng runs under the name Kwabena Adu Gyamfi.
These businesses include El Dunamis Media Limited, Onpoint 1 Laundry Ltd., Vibrant Generation Chapel Worldwide LBG, Dunamis Chapel Worldwide LBG, El-Dunamis Enterprise, and Kharis Football Academy FC Ltd.
He said that some of these organizations had small-scale mining licenses.
As a result, Mr. Ablakwa further urged that the preacher step down from the Board as a symbol of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo- Addo’s commitment.
Additionally, the Foreign Affairs Ministry must explain why Rev. Victor Kusi-Boateng was initially eligible for a diplomatic passport, according to the Ranking Member on Foreign Affairs.
