The National Cathedral’s board of trustees has accepted the resignations of Rev. Eastwood Anaba, president of Eastwood Anaba Ministries, and Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, founder and general overseer of the United Denominations of Action Chapel Churches Worldwide.
In a joint statement, Archbishop Duncan-Williams and Rev. Anaba made it clear that the government’s failure to designate an impartial accounting firm to carry out an exhaustive audit of all public funds provided to the National Cathedral is the reason behind their decision to resign.
“Despite our prayers, best hopes, and best wishes, unfortunately, a needed audit to help restore public confidence and trust in this consequential project has not been enacted to the best of our knowledge. Since January 2023, we have awaited news to no avail regarding the finding of the audit,’’ parts of the statement sighted by 1Family Radio read.
“We, therefore, regret that, as a matter of conscience and faith, we hereby submit to you our resignation from the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral.”
In January 2023, the two well-respected clerics demanded that the National Cathedral’s construction be put on hold indefinitely in order to conduct a project audit.
The two distinguished clergymen also called for the project’s suspension until Ghana’s economic situation improves in a letter addressed to the Board of Trustees, citing the current status of the country’s economy as a reason for the project’s inability to be completed on schedule.
