Jomoro marks Independence Day

Half-Assini (W/R), Mar. 6, GNA – Ghanaians have been urged to imbibe time tested-values like patriotism, hard work, selflessness, tenacity of purpose of the nation’s founders as they strove for the nation’s transformation.

Mr George William Somiah, the Jomoro District Chief Executive, said this when he addressed a parade of school children and other observers including government officials, traditional authorities and the general public to mark the 59th independence anniversary celebration of the District at Half-Assini.

The celebration is under the theme: “Investing in the Youth for Ghana’s Transformation”.

Thirty schools in the District including Half-Assini and Annor Adjaye Senior High Schools as well as Half-Assini Masquerade took part in the three-hour march past.

For the first time in the history of the area, this year’s anniversary was attended by a high powered Ivorian Government delegation led by Sous Prefect of Noe, Mousier Traore Brahima.

Samiah Yaba Nkrumah,the former Jomoro MP, was also present.

The DCE said Ghanaians have every cause to celebrate the independence because it did not come on a silver platter but men and women sacrificed their lives for this great nation.

He said Ghana’s multi-party democracy continues to be entrenched whilst an enabling environment is being created for citizens to fulfill their dreams and aspirations in life.

Mr Somiah called on the youth serve the great nation with diligence and the best of their ability in whatever capacity they find themselves.

Nzemaman Preparatory and Christian Academy Schools, both of Half-Assini, won the best March-Pass award for Primary and the JHS levels respectively.
