Domelevo expects thorough audit of National Cathedral expenditure

Former Auditor, General Daniel Yaw Domelevo says he expects a thorough audit of funds spent on the National Cathedral project. 

Speaking on the matter on Citi TV’s flagship programme, The Point of View, Mr. Domelevo chastised the government for the use of scarce public funds to support the work. 

Mr. Domelevo opined, “The part of the audit that bothers on criminality should be handed over to the Office of the Special Prosecutor and I think he should work hand-in-hand with the Auditor General and see people being dragged to court and prosecuted in addition to the recovery of the monies. It will bring deterrence into the system. One of the things I expect in this collaboration is to get the necessary evidence that the OSP will use in court”.

The Board of Trustees of the Cathedral project noted that it has begun discussions with Deloitte to commence a statutory audit of the project. 

The move by the audit service followed public backlash and calls for investigations into the cathedral. 

This follows what the Board says are recent nagging issues that have enveloped the construction process.

“The Board is already in discussions to engage Deloitte, which accepted to be the auditors when the National Cathedral was registered, to commence the normal statutory audit”, the Board through its Chairman, Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah said in a statement earlier this week.
