The National Cathedral of Ghana Secretariat has refuted allegations by North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, that it is engaged in identity theft.
The North Tongu MP had alleged in his ‘National Cathedral Scandals – America Edition’ that the Secretariat was guilty of identity theft in the registration of the National Cathedral Foundation in the US.
The Foundation, he alleges, has been registered in the name of one Jose Salgado who is deceased.
However, reacting to Okudzeto’s findings, the Secretariat said they were merely a distortion of facts.
“In arriving at this so-called identity theft, the MP distorts information on the registration documents by taking the Taxpayer ID number: 86-3859197 (Appendix 1) and disingenuously changes it to social security number, SSN: 863-85-9197 belonging to a deceased named, Jose Salgado (Appendix 2). He then proceeds to accuse the National Cathedral of using the ‘stolen’ identity of the deceased to register,” the Secretariat explained.
