Millicent Carboo unanimously endorsed DCE for Biakoye

Madam Millicent Kabuki Carboo, the District Chief Executive (DCE) nominee for Biakoye, in the Otis Region, has been unanimously approved by the assembly members.

She polled 47 “Yes” votes, representing 100 per cent.

Madam Carboo made a comeback after she failed to secure approval for the same position in 2017, during the confirmation session.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo nominated her again in 2021, which led to her victory.

The new DCE thanked the President for her nomination and the assembly members for endorsing her.

Madam Carboo said the district’s development drive, the welfare of assembly members and the implementation of decisions taken by the assembly about improving peoples’ living conditions in the various electoral areas would be her priority.

She said her door was opened to all irrespective of their political colours, adding that “I will surely be a mother for all of you.”

Madam Carboo, who is also the founder of Oti Women for New Patriotic Party (NPP), said she would welcome all suggestions and opinions in good faith, adding that “working together as a team, would lead to successful development.”

Joshua Gmayenaam Makubu, the Oti Regional Minister, promised to work with traditional leaders and assembly members in the region towards development.

He urged all confirmed nominees to respect Assembly members and stakeholders while they discharge their duties.

Mr Makubu assured he would ensure that issues of ex-gratia and allowances of assembly members were resolved, and also initiate programme to build their capacities.

John-Peter Amewu, Minister of Railway Development, and Member of Parliament (MP) for Hooey, who was at the event, commended the new DCE and seven other nominees, who were approved in the region.

The minister said Madam Carboo was hardworking and competent, and urged the assembly members to come together and support her towards the development of Biakoye District. – GNA
