Accra, Nov. 30, GNA — Alhaji Issah Abdulai, the Madina Chief of Dagomba, has called on Ghanaians to work towards protecting the country’s peace.
“As Ghanaians we must cherish the peace the country enjoys and ensure that it is protected and sustained at all times to promote national cohesion and development,” he said.
Alhaji Abdulai made the call during this year’s Damba Festival of the Dagomba Community at Madina on the theme: “Consolidating the Peace and Unity in Dagbon for Development”.
He said it was the responsibility of every citizen to ensure that the nation remained peaceful to drive growth and development.
“It is not only the duty of those in government to protect the country’s peace but the governed as well,” Alhaji Abdulai noted.
“Ghana is not a perfect nation and we must strive to ensure that her peace is not compromised.”
Acts that had the tendency to threaten the peace must be avoided since any form of instability would be devastating for the nation, he said.
Alhaji Farouk Aliu Mahama, the Member of Parliament for Yendi, who launched the ‘Madina Dagomba Education Support Fund’ called on Ghanaians to take education very seriously as it was the bedrock of development.
He urged parents to take advantage of the Free Senior High School Policy to enroll their children in school.
