President of Eastwood Anaba Ministries, Rev. Eastwood Anaba and Founder and General Overseer of United Denominations of Action Chapel Churches Worldwide, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams have both tendered in their resignation from the Board of Trustees overseeing the construction of the National Cathedral.
A joint statement released by the clergymen revealed that their decision to step down is as a result of the government’s failure to appoint an independent accounting firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of all public funds contributed to the National Cathedral.
Back in January 2023, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams and Rev. Eastwood Anaba called for the immediate suspension of the construction of the National Cathedral for a financial audit to commence.
“Despite our prayers, best hopes and wishes, unfortunately, a needed audit to help restore public confidence and trust in this consequential project has not been enacted to the best of our knowledge. Since January 2023, we awaited news to no avail, regarding the finding of the audit.
“We, therefore, regret that as a matter of conscience and faith, we hereby submit to you our resignation from the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral.”
