Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Honourable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has revealed that Government is yet to pay compensations to some property owners whose properties were pulled down in order to make way for the construction of the controversial National Cathedral.

In a post on his official Facebook page, the lawmaker described the revelations as “a big fat mess”.

Contractors have abandoned work on the construction of the National Cathedral due to lack of payments in spite of over GHC200 million of Tx payer’s money released by the Government so far.

“In our latest exposé on the Akufo-Addo cathedral scandal, we reveal that despite the colossal unconstitutional withdrawals from the Consolidated Fund in excess of GHS200million, and despite contractors abandoning the site for lack of payment; Government still owes some of the people whose properties were demolished.

Waterstone Realty Ltd had their high-rise commercial luxury apartments razed aground. Valuations indicate that they are entitled to some $6.5million in compensation. At today’s exchange rate, that is a staggering GHS51.6million.

Just imagine what GHS51.6 million plus all the other demolishing compensation packages could do in this ailing economy.

Considering that the company has served government notice since the 4th of November 2021 that they will be proceeding to court having run out of patience, perhaps we should expect Ken Ofori-Atta to carry out another unconstitutional withdrawal from the Consolidated Fund in the next few days.

It is worth noting that typical of this chaotic-property grabbing government, a 12th August, 2020 allocation of an approximately 1.26 acres of land situate at Ridge Residential Area by the Lands Commission as a first stage compensation to Waterstone Ltd has so far failed because powerful elements in the Akufo-Addo government are scrambling and scheming to buy the same piece of land — once again, not even the holy task of building the Lord’s temple appears restraining enough to tame their ungodly greed.

What a big fat mess!

From a personal pledge to a national catastrophe — God save our Republic.”
