Talensi-Nabdam Acquires Tractors

THE NEWLY-CREATED Talensi Nabdam District Assembly, has acquired 6 tractors at a cost of 240million cedis to improve the cultivation of agricultural produce as a remedial measure in combating poverty in the area, which has hit the Upper East region hard due to an erratic rainfall pattern.
It intends providing bullocks to help plough areas where the tractors cannot be used , and also improve livestock farming.

To complement the work of the tractors, the Assembly would also provide water pumping machines to enable an all-year-round farming activity in the district.

The District Chief Executive, Mr. Sebastian Tibil Bisnaab, who disclosed this to The Chronicle in a telephone interview on Friday, said all farmers along both sides of the White Volta river, would benefit from the equipment.

As to the panacea for total eradication of poverty, the Talensi Nabdam DCE prescribed education, which he said is a corner stone.

To achieve this, he revealed that the Assembly would encourage teachers to stay in the district, by motivating them with incentives as well as equipping the schools with furniture, reading and teaching materials.

He said the young district is exploring means of raising funds to help poor and needy students as an added impetus, and that funds in the Districts Assemblies Common Fund would be sourced as there is a provision for it, and the MPs would expectedly, do same with their share of it.

Tibil Bisnaab disclosed that the Talensi Nabdam district is endowed with a very rich culture, hence the need for the removal of “bottlenecks like disputes among our people”. He identified some of these as “Tengdaan” or land-owners matters.

He explained that, consequently, the Assembly last Wednesday, set up a 7 member committee under the chairmanship of Mr. John Zoogah including an Anglican priest, Reverend Father Pemis Tong, to find a lasting solution to the “central point of fusion” between Tenzug and Wakyii as well as Gbeogo.

Tibil Bisnaab, who until assumption of office as DCE, was a teacher, assured the people of an open door policy to all, irrespective of their political affiliation. He welcomed constructive suggestions and contributions from all citizens of the area, adding that, “I am prepared to listen to and work with everybody”.

On his relationship with the two NDC Members of Parliament, Honourables John Tia and Moses Asaga, for Talensi and Nabdam repectively, he said the former of the two “cooperated very well” when he galvanized his supporters to endorse him in the assembly.

The Chronicle gathered that Honourable Moses Asaga had been agitating for someone from his Nabdam constituency to be nominated by the president as the DCE.
