The Paramount Chief of the Talensi Traditional Area, Tong-Raan Kugbilalsong Nanlebetang has called on chiefs and people of the Upper East Region to rally for development and stop the pull-him-down syndrome.
According to him, the region can only achieve its developmental needs if people can stop their attitude of wanting the fall of colleagues in life.
The Paramount Chief made this comment after his re-election as Council of State member in Bolgatanga. He emphasized that the region has the needed resources for its growth but the pull-him-down syndrome is what is making it to be at a stage where it is, hence the need for collective efforts by all and sundry both at the diaspora and local levels.
Tong-Raan who served as a Council of State member under President Akufo-Addo’s first term polled 19 votes representing 50 percent of the total votes cast on Friday, February 12, 2021.
“We have to put ourselves together and develop. The pull-him-down attitude must stop. We must focus as a team on things that are of value to the development of this region. Those of you who have been going to our sister region, Upper West; have seen the difference. So, if you don’t let’s come together to develop our region. In the end, we will be the losers, and our children will have us to blame.” He said.
While appreciating the delegates for the honour done him, Mosore Kugbilalsong Nanlebetang thanked officials of the Electoral Commission for conducting a free and fair election.
The Paramount Chief of the Chiana Traditional Area, Ditundini Adiali Thomas-More who polled 6 votes out of the total valid votes cast, also congratulated Mosore Kugbilalsong Nanlebetang for his victory.
The results were as follows, Tong-Raan Mosore Kugbilalsong Nanlebetang polled 19 votes out of 30 valid votes cast. Akurugu Eric Aligiyelah had no vote, Yam Mort had no vote, Akamboe Ayirebasia polled 5 votes, and the Paramount Chief of the Chiana Traditional Area, Ditundini Adiali Thomas-More who polled 6 votes.
