The chiefs and elders of Nabdam Traditional Area have described the appointment of the new Talensi-Nabdam District Chief Executive (DCE), Hon Anaba Anabila as an “honour” done them by President John Agyekum Kufour and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
They expressed their appreciation to President Kufour and his government for appointing Hon. Anabila, the prince of Tongo-Beo as the new DCE, indicating that the DCE was not only “competent and influential”, but also one of the “dynamic and intelligent” sons of the district. The Regent of Nangodi Paramouncy, Bagnaba Alex remarked that appointing a son from a royal family in the District showed that President Kufour had given the chiefs in the District another great opportunity to politically govern their own people through their son.

He noted that though his appointment has come almost at the tail end of President Kufour’s administration, given the character of the DCE as a very open-minded person, who has been brewed in both royal and academic pots, couple with his influence in the community as a former Senior Programme Officer of Actionaid Ghana (an NGO), Hon Anabila’s administration would make a meaningful impact.

The Regent, however, prayed that God and the ancestors should grant him all the strength, wisdom and the needed guidance to perform his duties to help develop the community.

Bagnaba Alex made the remarks when the new DCE, Hon. Anabila who was accompanied by the Presiding Member and District NADMO Coordinator, Hon. Francis Wongnab and Mr. Paul Wooma, made his maiden courtesy call on the Regent and his elders to introduce himself to them.

The Kongo Divisional Chief, Sapaat Nab-Naaba Namal-Teng, expressed his gratitude to the NPP government for acknowledging chiefs in her administration. She further noted that the increment in their allowances from GH¢ 10 to GH¢20 for the paramount chiefs and GH¢2 to GH¢10 for the divisional chiefs was worth commending.

He also praised the government for carving the area out of the then Bolgatanga District which has led to a rapid development in the area. He disclosed that Kongo in particular, had no public school before the NPP government took office, but the Town could now boast of government schools.

Hon. Anabila promised the chiefs and elders in the district of an open-door administration and called on the chiefs and people in the district to endeavour to actively participate in the decision making process. He ceased the opportunity to outline some of the development projects that the government had embarked on. He also assured the chiefs that some of the decentralized offices would be built in the Nabdam area.

Hon. Anabila said the Talensi-Nabdam area met the requirements for a district since 1988, but was never accorded that status until the NPP government came to power. To him, this is “a demonstration of the NPP government’s commitment towards development of this area”, hinting that prominent personalities in the Nabdam area had begun talks as to where to locate the capital of a would-be Nabdam District.

The former Upper East Regional Minister, Mr. Boniface Gambila, who is also the NPP Parliamentary Candidate for Nabdam Constituency, surfaced at the meeting and urged the chiefs and the people to consolidate the prevailing peace in the area.

He entreated them to reject the lies of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and to vote for the NPP in both the Presidential and parliamentary elections, come December.
