Nat’l Cathedral: Duncan Williams, Eastwood Anaba, Dag Heward Mills to resign – Captain Smart
Firebrand Media Personality Blessed Godsbrain Smart, also known in private life as Captain Smart has alleged that three members of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral will be resigning from the Board.
In a tweet shared on June 15, 2022, Captain Smart revealed that the Action Chapel International (ACI) Founder Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, is one of the trustees who will be resigning after Dr. Mensa Otabil.
According to Captain Smart, the rests to exit are the founder and presiding bishop of the United Denominations Originating from the Lighthouse Group of Churches (UD-OLGC, formerly Lighthouse Chapel International), Bishop Dag Heward-Mills, and the Founder of Fountain Gate Chapel and Eastwood Anaba Ministries (EAM), Rev. Eastwood Annaba.
“Archbishop Duncan Williams, Rev. Eastwood Annaba, and Bishop Dag Heward-Mills would also be tendering in their resignation soon from the National Cathedral Board of Trustees?” portions of the tweet shared by Captain Smart read.
Already, one member of the Board of trustees of the Cathedral, the founder of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Pastor Mensa Otabil, has resigned from the Board.
Although Dr. Otabil has not confirmed his resignation, his details have been deleted from the website of the National Cathedral, which reduces the Board of trustees to 12.
According to the Member of Parliament for North Tongu and Ranking Member on Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the leader of ICGC left because of the illegality being perpetrated by the Akufo-Addo government concerning the ongoing project.
“I am not surprised that there is quite an uneasy calm at the Board of Trustees. And I can confirm to you that one imminent priest has walked away from the Board; the revered Rev Mensa Otabil is no longer there.
“The whole year, he has not attended any of their meetings. It is not clear what his reasons are, but he has given indication [that all is not well],” Ablakwa said.
Reports suggest that there is quite an uneasy calm among the Board of Trustees. And I can confirm that one imminent priest has walked away from the Board; the revered Dr. Mensa Otabil is no longer with them.
The 5,000-seater National Cathedral remains one of the top priorities of the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s government. This is in fulfillment of a pledge made by the president to God before winning the crucial 2016 elections.
