The chiefs and queen mothers in the Nadowli-Kaleo District in the Upper West Region have congratulated Mr Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin on his election as the Speaker of the Eighth Parliament of the Fourth Republic.
“We are proud of you, Mr Speaker, and we pray for God’s guidance and protection for you. May your tenure as Speaker be successful and one that would be remembered for all the good reasons in our proud history as a country”, they said.
Addressing a news conference at Kaleo on behalf of the chiefs, queen mothers and the people of the Nadowli-Kaleo District, the Chief of Kanyini, Naa Abayema Kandemekpie II, noted that Mr Bagbin’s 28 years of experience in Parliament had placed him in a better position to play the role of a Speaker as the public would expect at this material moment.
He said Bagbin, the first person from northern Ghana to occupy the position of the Speaker, also brought hope to the people, and “now the youth especially will know that it is possible to dream big and work hard no matter where you come from.”
Naa Kandemekpie II noted that as a parliamentarian, Mr Bagbin’s influence brought a lot of development to Nadowli-Kaleo and the entire Upper West Region.
He expressed optimism that with his new position as Speaker of Parliament, he would do more to bring development to the people of the region.
