Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a Member of Parliament for North Tongu, has asked the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and the Registrar General’s Department for information on the alleged double identity of Power Chapel Worldwide head pastor Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng.
What the authority is doing to address the circumstances that led to the application for and issuance of two distinct Tax Identification Numbers (TINs) is one of the requests being sought from the GRA.
He also wants to know what the Registrar General is doing about the Reverend Minister’s registered businesses, which have had two TINs for 12 years.
In a series of social media posts, the legislator alleged that Rev. Kusi Boateng, Secretary to the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral, had registered businesses and multiple passports bearing the name Kwabena Adu Gyamfi.
He also explained how two TINs were created at different times, sometimes with two different birth dates.
According to Mr. Ablakwa, he began investigating Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng’s double identity when he discovered in the incorporation documents that he was one of the project’s contractors under the registration name Kwabena Adu Gyamfi.
Mr. Ablakwa stated that during his investigation, he discovered that Victor Kusi Boateng, the appointed Secretary of the National Cathedral Board of Trustees, owns JNS Talent, which was paid GH 2.6 million.
Additionally, the Secretary’s expired driver’s license bears the name Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng, according to the North Tongu legislator, which was used to include him on the Secretariat Board of Trustees.
The legislator requested an investigation into Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng from the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ).
Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng, on the other hand, issued a statement in response to the allegations, stating that Mr. Ablakwa’s claims are a “twisted narration of events” and threatening to sue the MP.
