THE ADAKLU Traditional Area has amicably resolved its disagreement with government over its choice of a District Chief Executive (DCE) for the area and has subsequently given Maxwell Hini-Yao Gbakah their full support.
They explained that everyone in the community including their Paramount Chief, Togbe Gbogbi Atsa V have nothing against the nominee whom they now found fit for the job, having demonstrated in various capacitates that he was a diligent son of the land.
This was contained in a press statement issued from the Adaklu Paramountcy signed by Paramount Chief of the traditional area, Togbe Gbogbi Atsa V.
The statement which was made available to DAILY GUIDE over the weekend said ?As the paramount chief of the area in consultation with all my Sub Chiefs?and other interest groups, I want to put on record that the people of Adaklu do not have anything against Mr. Maxwell Gbakah because he has served his people diligently in different capacities without blemish.?
This current position follows an initial rejection of the nomination of Mr. Gbakah?s whom the chiefs and people of the area accused of not being credible and unifying enough to hold that position.
But following an emergency general consultative meeting of all chiefs including senior divisional chiefs, opinion leaders, executives of the Adaklu Namianyo Association, assembly members and other stakeholders, the people have made a sharp u-turn saying they have now ?resolved to support the President?s nominee.?
The statement noted that at the meeting organized and chaired by Togbe Atsa, all parties agreed that Mr. Gbakah had gone through all the processes and satisfied the conditions of a DCE nominee.
They consequently thanked ?President Mahama for giving them the best material to promote development in the area.?
Togbe Atsa on behalf of his people thanked government for the creation of the Adaklu district and nominating Mr. Gbakah as their DCE. He promised that he and his people would return the favour by contributing to retain the NDC government in power.
He concluded that both Mr. Gbakah and the NDC parliamentary candidate for the area would be given the needed support to bring development to the doorsteps of the people of Adaklu if elected.
