A self-seeking worker of Kete Krachi District Assembly in the Oti Region, Mr Samuel Daitey Zebulon Okudjeto, has landed himself in a serious trouble.
This was after he was exposed for his treacherous move(s) to destroy the hard-won reputation of Madam Rebecca Nartey, who is overseeing the business of Marks Resort at Ada Foah in the Ada East District of the Greater Accra Region.
Information available to Weekend Today points to Mr Okudjeto’s dirty and clandestine plot by allegedly circulating on social media platforms what could be described as “highly manufactured lies” against Madam Nartey, who is a lawyer by profession.
Weekend Today was reliably informed that Madam Nartey engaged the services of Mr Okudjeto in August 22, 2017 at a time that he was working at Ada East District Assembly to supervise and coordinate activities of the finishing touches of renovation works on Maks Resort, a family hotel facility located at Solikope in Ada Foah.
Sources close to the artisans who are doing the renovation works on the hotel told Weekend Today that Madam Nartey abrogated the coordination and supervision services agreement with Mr Okudjeto.
That, the sources noted, was after Madam Nartey detected an alleged massive financial malfeasance by Mr Okudjeto which was adversely affecting the effective executing of the renovation works on the project.
Furthermore, Madam Nartey, the paper gathered, observed the continuous habit of Mr Okudjeto to inflate the invoices of the building materials and other items needed for the renovation works, in addition to buying inferior goods and products.
Mr Okudjeto was also accused of disregarding and disrespecting the various instructions of both the manager and the security personnel at Maks Resort in the implementation of the project.
That situation, according to our sources, compelled Madam Nartey to stop Mr Okudjeto from playing his supervisory role on the project.
Weekend Today discovered that, that was the genesis of the rift between Madam Nartey and Mr Okudjeto, for which reason, the latter in the company of two fetish priests stormed the premises of Maks Resort to destroy some valuable properties including the table of Madam Nartey.
A video in the possession of this paper shows how Mr Okudjeto with the support of those two fetish priests indeed vented their spleen on the hotel’s facilities.
Interestingly, Weekend Today was told that Mr Okudjeto in his own capacity wrote an ill-fated letter to Madam Nartey and demanded from her to refund an amount of GH¢138,691,000 being money for the coordinators and labourers during the construction of the twin-storey building at Maks Resort.
That was not all, the paper gathered that Mr Okudjeto threatened in the same letter dated April 23, 2018 that failure by Madam Nartey to refund the said money will compel him to sue her in any court of competent jurisdiction.
And obviously not satisfied with all these, Mr Okudjeto, Weekend Today learned, resorted to issuing threatening text messages to Madam Nartey.
Among some of the messages were: “Kabukie, whether transfer or not you will surely know that am NPP and you will see whether I will go or not.
“My next target is to send the pictures of your hotel, warehouses and others including the various petitions to the Office of the Chief of Staff, Ministry of Information, Attorney General and Chief Justice by next week, then you will surely know that am nonsensical, … who pays police to come and arrest you…”
Again, Weekend Today learned that Mr Okudjeto has been allegedly circulating various information in social media platforms and newspapers, accusing Madam Nartey of not acquiring a building permit for Maks Resort.
Weekend Today gathered that Mr Okudjeto attacked the female lawyer by challenging authorities of the Ghana Tourism Board GTB) on why they awarded the Excellence Award to a hotel that had no permit.
But, it is now clear that Mr Okudjeto’s plan to undermine Madam Nartey and Maks Resort has completely backfired.
Meanwhile, documents intercepted by Weekend Today in connection with the implementation of the coordination activities agreement have exonerated Madam Nartey and the facility from any wrongdoing as claimed by Mr Okudjeto.
These documents from the office of Maks Resort in addition to various information from the Ada East District Assembly, Lands Commission of Ghana and Ghana Tourism Board have clarified that Maks Resort is indeed operating legally, and that the facility has a building permit.
Probing further, Weekend Today also intercepted various invoices issued by the Vessel of Hope Star which indeed attest to the fact that Mr Okudjeto inflated the prices of many of the building materials.
“How on earth will someone bring a business to this deprived area, create employment and help tourism for a homegrown boy to sabotage it, some aggrieved workers at Maks Resort complained.
To this end, the workers asked Mr Okudjeto to immediately desist from that behaviour and apologise to Madam Nartey for wrongly attacking her.
