The corrupt and arrogant District Chief Executive for Kadjebi Mr. Seth Alifui popularly ?known on the political front in the Volta region as ?Volta Mugabe? who took office in April 2009, has got to a point where his removal from office is the only means that can apiece the residents in the Akan constituency.
Volta ?Mugabe? has allegedly been conspiring with illegal chainsaw operators to deplete a portion of Ghana?s forest in his District, Kadjebi District in the Volta Region.
The residents alleged that, the District Chief Executive??has collected a whooping sum of five hundred Million old cedi (500,000.000) from some unsuspecting illegal chain saw operators with the intention of using the said money to?face-lift?the Okanta-Jinji roads.
This action of Mr. Seth Alifui is said to have encouraged the illegal chainsaw operators to continue to destroy the forest at a very fast pace in the entire Kadjebi District.
Meanwhile, the bone of contention that has brought the whole Kadjebi District into disrepute is the Kadjebi District?s inability to carry out the improvement and supposed development of the district.
He is also alleged to have built an ultra modern hotel and restaurant opposite the only secondary school in the Kadjebi Township Kadjebi-Asato Senior High School (KASHS). Some parents who saw the building when being built claim they taught it?s a learning centre so they were very happy that at least their extravagant, pride district chief executive has for once have had a positive thinking about the community development since it has never been his concern in the district.
They finally express shocked when they saw that after all the building was a hotel complex belonging to the DCE as his personal property.
Currently Kadjebi-Asato Senior High School (KASHS).??Objective was to move from category B to A, step up their performance in Mathematics and also work towards the Head of State Award.
We gathered that in sports, the school continued to take the first position in all disciplines in the zone and in the region. But at the moment, the school was confronted with problems of infrastructure, particularly inadequate classroom accommodation, classroom furniture and the dining hall.
The school was also alleged to have challenges with inadequate staff, inadequate classroom, furniture, water supply and power. Due to the inadequate academic staff, some of them teach as many as 30 or 40 periods a week instead of the maximum 25 for a graduate teacher.
The youth especially are so desperate to further their education while some have vowed to learn a trade but these dreams have been with most of them as a result of no sponsorship or equipped parental care to assist them with mechanism to bring their ambitions into manifestation.
The youth have started singing war songs as a result of the gory character and love for money that their supposed first gentleman of the district his demonstrating.
some party gurus who pleaded anonymity with this reporter for fear of being isolated by the DCE are also seething with anger over how the District Chief Executive continue to embarrass the party in the Akan Constituency. Sorties among party rank and file also told the same story.
While some were optimistic that, the top hierarchy of the National Democratic Congress would have learnt what really is happening on the ground and subsequently remove the DCE for the smooth growth of the party in the Akan Constituency that can best be described as the most heterogeneous constituency in the Volta region.
The moment news paper gathered that it has become a great worry for Akan constituency citizens as some of their MDCES are crying for their personal gains than working assiduously for mother Ghana.
some party members ware quick to argue that, the President, John Dramani mahama should prepare for disaster in 2016 if he continue to believe the ?mendacity? he is being told by some of his MDCES especially from the Volta Region.
He charged the President not to forget the promises he made to them during the campaign period to be a listening president, father for all and his very famous statements ?Working for you?. As hon. Seth Alifui is actually working for his personal gains and not a contributor for the development of Volta region and mother Ghana as a whole.
However, there is a general perception that some MMDCEs were skeptical that most people worry more about their pockets , and are ready to blame national administration with defections if it failed to listen to them this time round.
Another matter that party members are worried about is the fact that, the District Chief Executive Mr. Seth Alifui has already grabbed for himself a ?mansion? which they said is not strategically located. ?Look my brother, this mansion is in the middle of the Kadjebi town and don?t you think our political opponents will make campaign capital out of it during 2016 he quizzed this reporter? he demanded for an answer with anger.
Some alleged senior members of the ruling NDC gurus who spoke to this Reporter pleaded that we treat their views with anonymity in other to avoid attacks and treats from the Volta ?Mugabe? of their time.
Argued that, there are a lot of works to do against the 2016 and they plead that the president should not try to add salt to injury by re appointing none performing MDCES who have cruelly grabbed mansions and made expensive properties at the expenses of their respective constituencies.
