The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has obtained records from the West African Examination Council (WAEC) to prove that the board secretary of government’s national cathedral project has a double identity as he has several times alleged.
The document obtained reportedly confirms the legislator’s allegations.
In response to a formal request by the MP seeking the details used by the board secretary during his GCE ‘O’ Level examination, WAEC’s letter disclosed a slightly different name used by same person back then.
According to WAEC’s letter, T. I. Ahmadiyya Secondary, Kumasi, presented Boateng, Kusi Victor as a candidate for the 1989 examinations.
Mr. Ablakwa has since called on the Attorney General and the Minister for Justice to prosecute Rev. Kusi Boateng just as they are doing the embattled NDC candidate for Assin North Constituency by-election, James Gyakye Quayson.
“A rather bizarre statutory declaration by Kusi Boateng/Adu Gyamfi dated 15th June, 2016 is attached to this witness statement and it appears to confirm all the allegations of double identity by the North Tongu legislator.”
“Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng/Kwabena Adu Gyamfi claims in his sworn statutory declaration that his given name at birth is Kwabena Adu Gyamfi. He states that Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng was only an adopted name later in life when he started preaching,” Mr. Ablakwa said in a statement.
The MP wants the board secretary to be charged with forgery, misleading public officials and false statutory declarations.
