The Metropolitan Chief Executive of Sekondi Takoradi Metropolis , Anthony Kurentsir Sam is challenging anyone who has proof of replacement of any redundant staff at Sekondi Takoradi Assembly(STMA) after the recent staff rationalisation , to provide it.

Responding to some claims by some callers during an exclusive interview on Radio 360’s flagship morning programme dubbed “Y3nsom” , hosted by Kwame Malcolm , the Metro Chief Executive revealed that the assembly spends almost 93,000 cedis to pay its staff ; ” I came to meet a situation where there were 3 persons doing the job of a secretary ; assembly spends so much to pay staff so we decided to do staff rationalisation to save money for the ever demanding developmental requests from residents of the metropolis…” ; said the MCE of STMA.

He explained further that the necessary due process of labour requirements have been followed and added further that he has even personally ensured some are re engaged in others areas where there are vacancies ; “…I have  personally led for some to be employed so why am I being accused of re deploying members of the NDC party? The exercise was professionally done by a labour consultant and anyone who has proof of me re engaging people again, I challenge them to show proof…” the STMA Mayor quipped.
