An official audit of every transaction made so far on the National Cathedral project will soon begin.
This task will be carried out by Deloitte, who reportedly agreed to serve as the National Cathedral of Ghana’s auditors when it registered the organization.
On Monday, January 23, the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral met and decided to order this required audit.
This choice was made following calls for an immediate halt of the project and a subsequent audit of the contracts that have already been given from two members of the Board, Rev. Eastwood Anaba and Archbishop Nicolas Duncan-Williams.
The Secretariat revealed that all relevant project documentation was delivered to Parliament last month in a press release distributed on Tuesday, January 24.
As a result, “Parliament may, if it so chooses, establish a commission or choose an independent auditor to evaluate all matters relating to the contract award, procurement, construction activities, and financial operations of the National Cathedral project to date.”
It acknowledged the existing financial challenges while highlighting the fact that the project had come to a halt.
