The Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George, has asked the churches in the country to distance themselves from the controversial National Cathedral project.
He said their association with the project will do their reputation more harm than good.
Sam George says although he had wanted to remain silent on the issues surrounding the project, current developments have compelled him to speak up.
“I have tried to be silent on this Cathedral matter, but I honestly believe it is about time the Church distances itself from the blatant theft and robbery going on in the name of GOD.”
His warning follows a denial by multiple award-winning Gospel musician, Sonnie Badu, that he was not paid a dime for his performance at Ghana National Cathedral launch in the USA.
According to him, he and his team were not even hosted well at the event.
Wow, thanks for alerting me , I was not given a dime .. not even a seat for me and my team , We stood outside.. https://t.co/UmWNNkAF2H

“We stood outside,” he added in a tweet on Monday, June 20.
As a result, the lawmaker wants the government to disclose who took the money.
“They claimed to have paid Sonnie Badu $50,000 for a song ministration at the launch in the US. Now he has come out to say he was not given a dime and not even a seat was offered to him and his team. So who took the $50,000? Surely the Trustees do NOT know about this!”
“Again, they claimed to have paid GHS30,000 to each of the gospel artistes who ministered at the launch here in Accra. Can those artistes also confirm if they received these monies?,’ he quizzed in a Facebook post on Tuesday, June 21.
