National Cathedral: JNS Talent Centre Ltd running a crèche paid GHS2.6m – Ablakwa alleges
North Tongu Member of Parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says newly classified documents on the controversial National Cathedral project in his possession show how millions of taxpayers’ funds were diverted to companies without any construction or design track record.
JNS Talent Centre Ltd which, allegedly runs a crèche in Dawhenya was paid some GHS2.6 million to help build the cathedral, the lawmaker revealed in a tweet Wednesday evening.
“We have discovered a shocking diversion of an impressive GHS2.6million of tax funds to a company known as JNS Talent Centre Limited.
“According to incorporation details in my possession, JNS Talent Centre Limited’s given registration number is: CS695622015. Its directors are: Johannes Eshun, Sheila Eshun and Kwabena Adu Gyamfi. The registered principal activity of JNS Talent Centre Limited is listed as “Talent and Skills Development Training.”
“JNS Talent Centre Limited has a stated capital of a measly GHS500.00.
“JNS has absolutely no track record in construction neither does it have capacity for architectural designs or related services.
“Further investigations reveal that JNS Talent Centre Limited operates a crèche located in Dawhwenya. The crèche’s motto is “train up a child in their talent and they are made for life.”
“It remains a mystery what kind of services JNS Talent Centre Limited provided to the National Cathedral Secretariat to pocket a cool GHS2.6million.”
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has said he will not be deterred by the naysayers insisting he will do everything within his power to ensure the completion of the project.
“I am determined, come what may, I have two more years, that whatever the case, the National Cathedral will be at a very advanced stage before I leave office. I think it is important that we do it.
“All the reasons that I’ve given and continue to give, there will still be critics and naysayers. I think we have to take it as they are all part of life. But it should not be a sign of discouragement to us to be able to go forward,” he said at a prayer service at the Jubilee House on Tuesday, January 10.
