The Court of Appeal has rejected an application by Kwabena Adu Gyamfi, also known as Victor Kusi Boateng, concerning the National Cathedral project. He sought to stop Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, an MP, from discussing him in relation to the project. This is the third time his lawsuit has been dismissed, following two previous failures in the High Court.

The Court of Appeal ruled on June 26, 2024, stating that the grounds of appeal did not meet the court’s rules. They deemed the application incompetent and inadmissible, and awarded GHC 3,000.00 to Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa. Before this ruling, objections were raised over the constitution of a new panel for the case, which were also dismissed by the court.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa had accused Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng, Secretary to the National Cathedral’s Board of Trustees, of conflicts of interest regarding the project. Ablakwa had raised concerns about financial dealings and alleged multiple identities involving Rev. Kusi Boateng. These issues led to legal actions including defamation suits and a contempt application, which were previously dismissed by the courts.
