The District Chief Executive for Zabzugu in the Northern Region, Ahmed Iddrisu Adarkwa has commended residents of the district for maintaining peace and unity in the area which has facilitated considerable development.
The DCE made the comments at the celebration of this year’s 66th Independence Day anniversary at Kworli traditional area in the Zabzugu district.
Monday, March 6, Ghana Marked its 66th Independence anniversary. In the Zabzugu district, the celebration was held in Kworli traditional area.
Security personnel, ambulance service, chiefs, teachers and students were all present for the celebration.
Delivering his anniversary speech, the DCE for Zabzugu, commended the people of the district for the peace the area is currently enjoying.
He said without peace, the district could not have achieved the level of development the area has seen under the NPP government.
The DEC, therefore, applauded the residents and urged them to use appropriate means in settling their differences rather than taking the law into their hands.
“I would like to commend the good people of Zabzugu district for the continuous peace that the district currently enjoys. I want to say that it’s because of this that we are seeing the kind of development we have today and I want to assure you that if we continue to be united and peacefully coexist, we will see more in terms of development in our communities,” he advised.
The DCE said the government has plans to bring development to the place and has asked the people to support the president in addressing the current economic difficulties.
“The government is doing its best to make sure that every Ghanaian lives comfortably. Currently, the country is faced with some economic challenges and I urge you all to pray and continue to support government in addressing the current situation,” he entreated.
This is the first time the Kworli traditional area is hosting the celebration of the independence anniversary.
Residents, teachers and students could not hide their joy in participating in the celebration. Some of the residents and teachers who spoke to Citi News said, “we are very happy today that for the first time, the district is holding the 6th match parade here in Nakpali Kworli traditional area, this will surely motivate the students”.
Another teacher said, “we are very happy as parents that we are today [Monday] witnessing the anniversary celebrations, the school children are all happy. We sew new uniforms for those that are taking part and all these are motivation for them. I will wish that next time it is done in other areas too so that children there will also experience it”.
The DCE says his outfit is working to address the issue of inadequate furniture in the schools.
