Mahama pledges forensic audit of National Cathedral Project upon election


John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has pledged to conduct a thorough investigation and forensic audit of the National Cathedral project if he is elected president in the upcoming December polls.


During a media engagement in Accra on Sunday, Mahama raised concerns about the project’s transparency and accountability. He asserted that an NDC government would scrutinize every aspect of the project to ensure value for money and adherence to good governance principles.


Mahama detailed that the forensic audit would involve an in-depth examination of the financial transactions, procurement processes, and resource usage related to the National Cathedral project. This investigation aims to identify any irregularities or instances of corruption and hold those responsible accountable.


“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,” Mahama said. “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.”


He further emphasized, “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.”
