The DCE for Zabzugu in Northern Region has entreated the citizenry “To shed off what divides us, concentrate on the many issues that unite us as a nation and let us work together to accelerate the progress made so far as we work to transform Ghana as this is the true meaning of independence”
The DCE who was speaking at the 63rd anniversary of Ghana’s independence said “Our ethnic and cultural diversity is a source of strength, not a weakness. We must reject any attempt to sow any strife and discord among us.”
He added, that, the people of Zabzugu and the entire region must uphold peace as a basic tenet of development while avoiding behaviors that will divide the district for political gains.
There was a march past by personnel of the Zabzugu SHS cadet Corp, and students and pupils drawn from various basic schools, the Zabzugu SHS and some voluntary organisations to mark the day, which was on the theme: “Consolidating Our Gains”.
