Nkonya Queenmother Lobbies Prez

… To Nominate Her Favourite For DCE

The Paramount Queenmother of Nkonya the traditional area, Nana Otubea II, has appealed to President Akufo-Addo not to impose nominees who have been rejected by the people, but rather appoint a more qualified person for the position of District Chief Executive (DCE).

Madam Millicent Kabuki Karboo, who was nominated by the President for the position of DCE for the area, was rejected by the people.

Nana Otubea noted that since the district was endowed with rich human resources, the appointment of a DCE should not become a problem for the President.

The Queenmother observed that Ghana had gone far in the democratic practices, and that President Akufo-Addo should help deepen democracy by accepting the rejection of Madam Kabuki Karboo as the voice of the people.

She said the era where nominees were imposed on the people against their will was over, and hoped the President, who is noted for his respect for human rights and rule of law, would definitely listen to the people and re-appoint a candidate who would generally be accepted by the people, like Mr. Korsinah.
