The primary reason why Mensah Otabil was unable to attend meetings of the Boards of Trustees of the National Cathedral has been uncovered, and it appears that the Honorable Member for the North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, published nothing but total falsehoods about the Pastor. In a letter from the National Secretariat, it was plainly stated that Mensah Otabil had informed the members that he would be unable to give the project the “required attention.”
“A member of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Mensa Otabil, the General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church, declared that he was unable to give the project the necessary attention and so did not register.
“Therefore, Dr. Mensa Otabil did not resign from the Board, as was stated, but excused himself at the time of the July 2019 registration of the Directors.” Dr. Otabil has not served on the Board of Directors or the Board of Trustees since July 2019. The letter stated that Dr. Mensa Otabil has an active interest in the project and continues to discuss strategy with the Secretariat.
