A pressure group, Concerned Citizens of Anloland have accused the District Chief Executive (DCE) of Anlo of corruption and called for his removal.

The Group based in Keta at a press conference addressed by its Convener, Wonder Setsoafia Deynu appealed to the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to remove Seth Yormewu from office within one week.

This according to them, is because his “conducts do not represent the promise of the President to fight corruption and protect the public purse.

“We the citizens of Anloland are so much afraid that the continuous stay of Seth Yormewu as the Chief Executive for Anloga District Assembly will bring no development to Anloland but rather to enrich Hon. Seth Yormewu and his relatives alone”.

According to Deynu, during the DCEs tenure at the Keta Municipal Assembly, “Seth Yormewu awarded illegal roads reshaping contracts to two companies – Zomef Enterprise and Demesco Construction Works owned by Mr. Samuel Dompre and paid Gh¢ 98, 200.00 for no work done”.

They however, called on Samuel Dompre and Seth Yormewu to as a matter of urgency refund the Gh¢ 98, 200.00 to the Keta Municipal Assembly.

Below is the full statement:

Denial

Seth Yormewu has, however, denied the allegations and accused some ‘influential persons’ within the area of trying to sabotage his plans to contest the parliamentary primaries for the Anlo constituency on the ticket of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP). 

According to Seth Yormewu, he is innocent of the allegations and waiting to be called by the appropriate investigating authorities, where he will respond to the issues.
