Nabdam Assembly confirms DCE through popular acclamation

Nabdam Assembly confirms DCE through popular acclamation

The Assembly Members of the Nabdam District Assembly of the Upper East Region has finally approved Mrs Agnes Anamoo’s renomination as the Chief Executive for the area through popular acclamation, after a second attempt.

Mrs Anamoo, the incumbent DCE, was renominated by President Akufo-Addo but was rejected by the Assembly Members during the first election on September 30, 2021.

The 19 Assembly Members, including 13 elected and six government appointees, agreed and confirmed Mrs Anamoo without going through voting.

Few minutes before the commencement of the election to approve the DCE nominee, Mr Zuure Sampana Abass, the Presiding Member of the Assembly, handed dismissal letters to two government appointees to the Assembly, Mr Francis Wognab and Mr Moses Deh.

The Presiding Member instantly handed appointment letters to Mr Thomas Kudoug and Mrs Veronica Barik to replace the sacked appointees and had them sworn in.

Mr Musah Assabigi, the Nabdam District Director of the Electoral Commission, who was present to conduct the election in response to the decision by the Assembly Members, said it was lawful that Members could agree to confirm the Nominee without voting.

Mrs Anamoo expressed gratitude to the President for reposing in her a duty to serve and thanked the Assembly Members for the gesture of unison and their confidence in her.

She said the days of the campaign were over and there was the need for them to work together to address the issues confronting the district.

“Electioneering campaigns are over and we need to close our ranks and work together to address issues of poverty, falling standard of education, water and sanitation, poor road infrastructure, alcoholism and teenage pregnancy, to enhance the livelihoods of our people,” she stated.

Mrs Anamoo, who described the occasion as the most humbling moment in her life, said she was going to justify the confidence placed in her.

“I consider the trust you have placed in me sacred and I will give my all to justify your confidence. It is a moment of honour and responsibility and there has never been a more humbling moment in my life than this.”

Nabdam Assembly invests ‘$1 million per constituency’ in Sanitation

Nabdam Assembly invests ‘$1 million per constituency’ in Sanitation

The Nabdam District Assembly has invested its share of the one million dollars per constituency into the provision of six 10-seater water closet toilet facilities at strategic points in the area to provide places of convenience for the people.

The facilities comprise washrooms including bath and toilet facilities and resting place and are almost 90 per cent complete.

The move is to afford people especially travellers who ply the Nabdam roads public convenience places to refresh themselves and rest.

One of the major challenges confronting people especially transporters and businessmen of neigbouring countries who ply the Nabdam roads is the lack of convenient public places to either attend to nature’s calls or wash down.

The Nabdam District, which is among the 15 Municipal and District Assemblies in the Upper East Region is being used as one of the transit points from Accra to Burkina Faso, Togo, Mali among other neigbouring countries and the Assembly took up such investment to generate income and promote good sanitation.

Madam Agnes Anamoo, the District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area, said this when she, together with Mr Simon Akasuya, the District Engineer and Mr Edward Dag-Bama Walla, the Presiding Member of the Assembly, toured the project sites to inspect the progress of work on the facilities.

The projects sites include Gane-Asonge, Kongo, Pelingu Market, Zanlerigu, Nangodi and Sakoti.

The DCE explained that the Assembly decided to invest its part of the One million dollars per constituency on such projects because they had the highest potentials of contributing enormously to the Internal Generated Funds (IGF) of the Assembly.

She noted that the facilities, which were strategically located at the market centres, would not only help generate revenue for the Assembly, but would also provide jobs as well as maintain the good sanitary conditions in such areas.

The District was placed fourth in the national league table during the ranking of districts in the country, in the area of initiating pragmatic measures to curb Open Defecation in 2019, she said, and commended the Assembly’s development partners such as the UNICEF for collaborating with the Assembly to empower communities to construct over 100 household latrines under the Community Led Total Sanitation model.

She said in order to increase the Assembly’s IGF, it had also constructed Market Sheds at Nangodi and Pelungu at a cost of GH¢268,000.00 from the District Development Facility (DDF).

She mentioned the renovation of Area Council and other Offices, the construction of the DCE’s Bungalow in the District Capital, Nangodi, at a cost of GH¢488,000.00 from the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF) and the construction of a two-Unit Fire Tender Bay at the cost of GH¢102,000.00 from the DACF among some of the project initiated under her administration.

The DCE also indicated that the construction of a 1,000 tonnes capacity warehouse at Nangodi at a cost of GH¢250,000.00 from the Central Government which is 92 per cent complete would help mitigate post-harvest losses and also help create jobs for the youth in the District.

Ms Meri Seidu, the District Director of the Ghana Health Service, acknowledged the contributions of the Assembly towards health delivery in the District and noted that the sanitation facilities would help curb the spate of the outbreak of diseases in the communities.

NABDAM INVITES PRIVATE SECTOR BUSINESSES TO INVEST IN 1D-1F POLICY

NABDAM INVITES PRIVATE SECTOR BUSINESSES TO INVEST IN 1D-1F POLICY

As part of measures to realize government’s dream of establishing at least a factory each in all districts in the country, the Nabdam District Assembly in the Upper East Region has opened its doors for collaboration with the Private Sector in achieving this dream.

District Chief Executive for Nabdam, Agnes Anamoo said the Assembly is endowed with natural resources such as Gold, Cereals, Sheanuts, Dawadawa, Clay, Stones, Poultry and Livestock which can be harnessed for self-reliance and developmental transformation of the area.

The DCE said this on the 34th Farmers Day Celebration held at Kotintabig. The DCE who was not enthused about the absence of a strong Private Sector in the district said, it has hindered the realization of the One-District One-Factory Policy in the area.

“It is unacceptable that we continuously produce without adding value to our farm produce, rather selling them in their raw state. It is against this backdrop that we need the Private Sector as the engine of growth to partner government to fashion the industrialization of our district under the ‘One-District One-Factory’ Policy.” She stated.

Acting Nabdam District Director of Agriculture, Mahamadu Iddi said government policies such as the ‘Planting for Food and Jobs’ Programme has improved food production for consumption and export purposes.

Remarking on debt recovering under the Policy, Mr. Iddi stated that, a total of Ghc 246,551.00 owed the program, and a recovery of Ghc217, 173.00 representing 92 percent has been done.

Tenga George Kolbila from Sakote community was adjudged district best farmer. For his prize, Mr. Kolbila took home a tricycle, knapsack sprayer, 4 cutlasses, 2 pairs of Wellington boots, 2 bags of fertilizer, a radio set and a piece cloth.

1V1D: THREE UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN NABDAM DISTRICT

1V1D: THREE UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN NABDAM DISTRICT

In fulfillment of government’s promise to boosting the agriculture sector through the construction of dams in villages especially in the northern part of Ghana which experiences three months of rainfall yearly, the Nabdam District in the upper East Region has started the One Village, One Dam project in three communities. This is according to the DCE for the area, Agnes Anamoo.

She explained that the contractor has moved to sites and work is progressing with expectations that the project would be completed within the stipulated time to meet the intended purpose of reserving water collected from rains for all year round availability for farming and livestock usage.

President Akufo-Addo promised to construct dams across villages in the Upper East, west and Northern regions which would encourage dry season farming in order for Ghana to become self-sufficient in food production. After assuming office, the president established the Special Initiative Ministry to take charge of priority projects which include the One Village, One Dam project.

In an interview on Daybreak Upper East Wednesday, Agnes Anamoo indicated that ten communities were tasked by Consultants to provide two sites for feasibility studies to be carried out of which three areas were selected and work has begun at various levels of construction.

“They came out with Consultants and they said they needed ten communities to go through and every community should give them two sites to survey…we did and the engineers also came and took over and identified where the dams should be. Nangodi they started before the raining season and it is already done, I think they are back…there is one at Zanlerigu, another one at Nyungbare. Sakote Chief Palace too they went there for a survey so as now, three are on site” She explained

Touching on the One District One Factory Policy , the DCE pontificated that her outfit was asked to scout and provide proposals, so she together with her team of technocrats have been able to identify two potential areas in Shea butter extraction and Soya beans and have since submitted to the sector ministry whiles awaiting approval.

Hon. Agnes Anamoo has also been applauding the President Nana Akufo Addo for boldly implementing the Free SHS Policy describing it as a “pressure relief”. She is therefore impressing upon Ghanaians to be optimistic and patient as the NPP government works to address the challenges in the country.

PLANS TO ESTABLISH OIL PROCESSING MILLS IN NABDAM DISTRICT UNDERWAY

As part of measures to arrest seasonal migration of youth to southern part of the country in search for non-existing jobs, Nabdam District Assembly is set to established three line processing mill in the area.

The three line processing mills which include, sheabutter, groundnuts and soya when fully implemented will be in fulfillment of government’s promise of establishing a factory each in all districts of the country.

Mrs Agnes AnamooNabdam District Chief Executive announced this on the occasion of the 33rd Farmers Day celebration held at Zanlerigu; a farming community in the district.

According to Mrs Anamoo, the mills when rolled out will “promote rapid industrialization of the district and create job opportunities and wealth for all”

This year’s celebration of the Farmers Day was on theme “Farming for food and jobs”. It is a day set aside to honor gallant farmers and fishermen in recognition of their untiring efforts for continuous feeding the country.

Mrs Anamoo stated that the district received a total of 5,225 bags of assorted chemical fertilizers under government’s “Planting for food and jobs” program. Out of this number, 3114 bags were disbursed to 697 farmers during the farming season while 2111 bags are presently in stores to cater for those who would be going into dry season farming.

“I wish to use this opportunity to entreat you all to take advantage of the availability of these inputs to go into dry season gardening and those of you who are already into it to upscale your farming” she admonished.

The Nabdam district assembly has awarded for the rehabilitation of the Kongo-Avareme dam which got broken during the raining season. “The contractor has since been on site and is expected to be completed by the end of this month” she stated.

This year’s celebration coincided with World Aids Day which is commemorated on 1st of December each year. Mrs. Anamoo bemoaned an increasing spate of HIV/AIDS cases recorded in the district this year.

“Last year, 52 cases recorded in our health facilities. This year, the number has increased to 56 when the year has not ended”

Acting Nabdam District Director of Agriculture, Mr Iddi Mahamadu speaking exclusive to A1radioonline.com appealed to government to consider employing more extension officers to help boost agriculture sector in the area.

“We have eight extension officers and if we have 21 officers, I think it will do”

Mr Iddi revealed that more than 60 percent of inputs distributed under the planting for food and jobs policy has been recovered.

He noted that the lack of logistics including means of transportation is another sector hampering agricultural production in the district.

“The only good means of transport is the motorbike which I am using. Most of our motorbikes are worn-out and the effect is that, we cannot reach all the farmers and that is how it is affecting the delivery”.

Ontoyen Denis emerged best farmer of the district. For his prize, he took home a motor tricycle, radio set, half piece wax print, a pair of Wellington boot, a bar of key shop, 3 cutlasses, 2 bags of compound fertilizer, 2 knapsack sprayers and a certificate.
