Nat’l Cathedral: Next NDC govt will conduct forensic audit of project-Mahama

Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama says the next NDC administration will investigate and audit the National Cathedral Project.

John Mahama made this statement while speaking with journalists in Accra on Sunday, July 7, 2024.

According to him, a forensic audit will be his first line of action on the project before his government will even proceed with the project.

He underscored the need for transparency and accountability on the project since government is suing public funds for the project

According to John Mahama, the forensic audit would look for irregularities or instances of corruption by carefully examining the project’s financial transactions, procurement practices, and resource usage.

“At the time this national cathedral came up, it was somebody’s personal commitment to God. And we were assured that public funds were not going to be used for the national cathedral. Unfortunately, we hear that 300 and something million has gone into it.

“Where did those payments go? Were they justified? Who did they go to? These are all things that we have to unravel. And I think that that is the first thing we will do before we even decide what to do with that huge pit.”

“So first, let’s investigate and do a forensic audit and if people have, you know, illegally and unlawfully taken the money of the people of Ghana. They must be made to refund that money,” he explained.
