The National Cathedral Secretariat has hit back at Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams and Rev. Eastwood Anaba over reasons for their resignation from the board of trustees.

The two, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams and Rev. Eastwood Anaba, announced their resignation in a letter to the president, dated October 12, 2023, over concerns that their call for an audit into the activities of the National cathedral project, went unheeded to since January 2023.

They noted that the deafening silence on the call for an audit runs contrary to their conscience and belief.

But in a sharp rebuttal, the secretariat has responded, describing the claim that no information whatsoever on the audit process was conveyed to them, as false.

In a statement signed by the Executive Director of the National Cathedral Project, Dr. Paul Opoku-Mensah narrated that “following this, the engagement letter for Deloitte to officially begin the audit was drafted and signed by Deloitte on March 27, 2023, and set up on their system on May 17, 2023. The expectation was that the first part of the audit was to be completed in July 2023. The audit process, so far, can be confirmed with the auditors, Deloitte.”

“The Board was constantly updated on the process through the Chairman and the Steering Committee, as well as the Executive Director’s reports to the meetings of the Board.”
