The Executive Director of the National Cathedral project has denied claims that Dr. Mensa Otabil, one of the Members of its Board of Trustees resigned from the Board due to certain actions he considered illegal.

According to Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah before the registration of the members of the Board of Trustees in 2019, Dr. Otabil opted out since “he could not give the needed attention to the project.”

In a statement, he emphasized that Dr. Mensa Otabil ceased to be a member of the Board of Trustees since 2019 owing to his reluctance to register to be part of the Board of Trustees.

“So, Dr. Mensa Otabil did not resign from the Board as being alleged but excused himself at the point of registration of the Directors in July, 2019. For the avoidance of all doubt, Dr. Otabil has not been a member of the Board of Trustees since July 2019,” part of the 7-page statement reads.

Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah, however, noted that Dr. Mensa Otabil who’s the Founder and Leader of the International Central Gospel Church, “nonetheless remains actively interested in the project and continues to share his views on strategy with the Secretariat.”
