Axim (W/R), Sept 23, GNA – Dr. Seidu Daana, Minister for Chieftaincy and Traditional Affairs, has reiterated that the government was determined to develop the chieftaincy institution to promote unity, peace and development.
He stated this when speaking at this year’s Annual Kundum Festival of the Chiefs and people of the Lower Axim Traditional Area at Axim.
Dr. Daana said the government was putting in place policies and programmes to achieve these objectives.
He said the theme for the festival “Developing the Youth Through Education” was appropriate because no country could develop without educated youth.
Dr. Daana appealed to the youth to take advantage of the government’s educational programmes to acquire the skills and knowledge needed for the development of the country.
“I would like to see the youth in this area in future as educated and equipped to meet the development challenges of the country”, he said.
