Member of Parliament for Efutu, Alexander Kwamena Afenyo Markin said he has not taken; neither does he have intentions of taking Gomoa Pomadze lands.

According to him the claims made by the Omanhene of Gomoa Ajumako Traditional Area, Nana Nyarfo Krampah in a press conference on Monday, October 4, 2021 is unfounded.

The Deputy Majority Leader in a press conference on Tuesday, October 5, 2021 pointed out that the chief of Gomoa Ajumako Traditional Area got in all wrong because he, the MP for Efutu has not claimed any land.

And further explained that, the edifice or statue at the Winneba junction roundabout is not himself as Afenyo Markin but it is a statue of Ghana’s first President, the late Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah shaking hands with the late J.B Dankwa.

The MP pointed out that he did not organise the press conference to argue with the Omanhene of Gomoa Ajumako but just to set the record straight, and he putting up a police station at new Winneba is not a new development that has occurred in the area.

The Chief of Pomadze who is the real custodian of the land in question, Nana Kofi Apata -V who was at the press conference with Afenyo Markin denied any knowledge of the press conference held in his name on Monday, October 5, 2021 by Nana Nyarfo Krampah.

And that whatever development has happened at Winneba Junction roundabout, Pomadze has a collective decision by the Chiefs, MP, police Commander and the elders of the traditional area.
