A Lady identified as Deborah Seyram Adablah has sued First National bank and her former boss at the bank at the Accra High Court for compelling her to enter into an amorous relationship that spanned many months.
Deborah Adablah claims although the relationship of s-xual nature peristed many months, Ernest Nimako failed to honour the terms of their relationship.
In a writ sighted by browngh.com, Deborah Adablah alleges that during her National Service days at First Atlantic Bank,her boss, Ernest Kwesi Nimako, made many sexual advances at her which she eventually gave into.
She further stated that she is subsequently entered into a ‘Parlor relationship’ with Nimako against her will.
“Plaintiff avers that, the relationship started as a result of a persistent sexual harassment and abuse by the 1st Defendant [Nimako], a superior officer who wielded a lot of power which the plaintiff finally gave in without which she would have found working in the 2nd Defendant [bank] office a nightmare.” she alleged.
According to Deborah Adablah, when she started working at the Ridge West office of First Atlantic Bank, she observed persistent sexual harassment by senior male officers against female workers of the bank.
“And if you failed to give in to their demands, your life in the bank is made unhappy, uncomfortable and unfriendly to work in,” she averred in her writ of summons.
Deborah also said almost all the male senior officers have a girlfriend at the bank and they change the ladies at their will to the knowledge of the managers of the bank.
“They also use we the female staff to make advances to very rich customers with a view to sleeping with them and getting them to open accounts with the bank to the detriments of the female staffs,” she spilled more.
Deborah blamed the bank for looking on while these happened and deliberately failed to take measures to end them.
It is Deborah Adablah’s case that the bank, as her employer, owed her a duty of care which it failed her. She said the bank also deliberately pushed her to reach out to male customers to bait them with sex in exchange of opening accounts with the bank.
According to Deborah Adablah, as part of the terms of the “Parlor relationship” with his boss bought him a vehicle but after a misunderstanding, Ernest Nimako, has taken steps to retrieve the car.
She also claims although after her National Service she was eligible for to be retained on contract, Nimako asked her to leave so he takes care of her but he has since failed to do so. The writ dated January 23, 2023 and the interesting claims it contains have been trending on social media.
