It is no longer news to the ears of Celestial Church of Christ members that the sole reason why the Celestial Cathedral Imeko has not been completed over three decades after its foundation stone was laid has always been put at the door step of financial drain on the part of the headquarters aside some other ‘bureaucratic’’ obstacles of power welding.
Some couple of days ago, it became common knowledge to all when the office of the chairman of Cathedral committee, Sup. Evang. Oluranti Ogunremi solicited for funds from all those willing and capable to support the building and completion mission of the project which ought to have been commissioned long before now.
As much as the faithful are ever ready to drop out of their abundance, the question many of them want answered is to what tune is the call for support? How much was budgeted for the Cathedral, how much has been expended, and how much is really needed by the committee to sign-off on the project by way of total completion and handing over the cathedral for use?
What can be deduced from the summation of views is the request and desire for proper accountability, by way of a properly audit statement of account since the inception of the Cathedral building committee and by that it means whoever has been in charge of the project before now should equally come forward and table his handing over statement to the present committee.
This is so because many believe that the time to call ourselves to accountability is NOW. Until the Baba Ogunremi led committee can make public the statement of account as it inherited from the previous head, and let everyone study and scrutinize it. Only then will people be happy to contribute to the building of the Lord’s house. At least the biblical Solomon accounted for everything he was given to build the temple. It is now over to Baba Jorotom who was the former Chiarman and Baba Ogunremi, the incumbent chairman who deputized Baba Jorotom during his term as Chairman, to satisfy the yearning of all Celestial Church members.
