Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, Member of Parliament for North Tongu in the Volta region has released the latest of his exposés regarding the personality of Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng.
A Thursday, July 20, 2023, tweet made by the legislator on the “double identity” of the Secretary of the Board of Trustees for the National Cathedral, Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng/Kwabena Adu Gyamfi implicates the presidency on his possession of a diplomatic passport with a double identity.
According to the MP, the Rev. Minister’s double identity which the presidency remained silent on, borders on criminality per the Human Rights Court description.
“Strangely, the Akufo-Addo presidency became most complicit in granting express approval for a diplomatic passport and instructing the Foreign Minister to issue the diplomatic passport all between the 3rd and 10th of November, 2021 when the Office of the President received the unlawful request.
“Legitimate questions arise on why the President’s favourite pastor was appointed as Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng; same Kusi Boateng name used for the registration of the National Cathedral of Ghana at the Office of the Registrar of Companies; same Kusi Boateng name used for the official national cathedral website; same Kusi Boateng name used on all official letterheads and official correspondence, only for presidential approval for a diplomatic passport to be granted in another name — Kwabena Adu Gyamfi,” he quizzed in portions of his tweet.
Suggesting that both the Presidency and the National Security did not do due diligence on the matter, Mr. Ablakwa indicated if this had been done, it “would have discovered this wasn’t a case of a mere alias as the Reverend Minister had double dates of birth, double mothers, double TINs, double Voter ID Cards, different WAEC records and multiple companies registered concurrently under his two distinct identities. These are all matters proven beyond any scintilla of doubt in the Human Rights Court.”
The Ranking Member on Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee says the latest, “revelations make the Akufo-Addo presidency deeply complicit and as guilty as sin for actively facilitating and erecting this criminal double identity edifice.”
“Ghanaians will now fully understand why President Akufo-Addo is unable to fire Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng/Kwabena Adu Gyamfi from the “National” Cathedral Board of Trustees and why the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia/Dame government is also unable to initiate criminal prosecution against Kusi Boateng/Adu Gyamfi despite incessantly persecuting political opponents,” he concluded.
Rev. Kusi Boateng/Kwabena Adu Gyamfi had earlier injuncted Mr. Okudzeto Ablakwa to prevent the latter from making further publications about him. This came after Mr. Ablakwa had revealed the former’s double identity and conflict of interest in matters relating to the National Cathedral.
But, the matter, was subsequently thrown out by the High Court.
