The traditional authorities of the Kaleo/Sankana/Takpo areas of the Upper West region have congratulated Speaker of Parliament Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin for assuming the 3rd office of our motherland Ghana after serving in the capacity of Member of Parliament for the past 28 years.
According to the chiefs, this is a well-deserved honour prestigiously accomplished through selfless services.
The chiefs paid this glowing tribute to their son in a press statement.
Below is the full statement:
Our Dear Son,
GARIBANYE! DZAAN BIE! FOR 28 LONG YEARS OF EXEMPLARY PUBLIC SERVICE TO MOTHER GHANA!
We have also heard the news. The good news of your elevation to the third most important job of our great Republic.
We, your Chiefs, and your people wanted you to know how proud we are of you!
Having known you all these years as the quintessential public servant, both in and out of Parliament, we were not entirely surprised that your colleagues in Parliament have today, not only recognized your impeccable track record in Parliament and in public service but have also emphatically (if unexpectedly) elected you as Speaker of the 8th Parliament of the 4th Republic of Ghana.
Having worked with you all these years, we know that your elevation would positively impact the lives of the people of our homeland and even beyond.
Please rest assured that you can always count on us for support, good counsel, and prayers in the discharge of your duties to mother Ghana.
In partnership, we look forward to working with you for the betterment of our people, our region, and our country.
Congratulations once again!
Chiefs of the Kaleo/Sankana/Takpo Paramountcies
On behalf of our people and the entire Upper West Region.
