The Ablekuma North Municipal Chief Executive, Mr. Kofi Ofori has emphasized that government will not allow a few individuals to undermine the peace and security of the state.

Mr. Ofori speaking at the 62nd Ghana Independence Day Anniversary celebration observed at the Kwashieman Anglican School Park in Accra under theme: ‘’Celebrating Peace and Unity’’.

School children from the municipality in their smart attires mounted an impressive occasion to herald the occasion.

Mr. Ofori noted that peace was a priceless commodity and there was the need to collectively, protect and safeguard it.

Government, the MCE said, would continue to work towards the sustenance and consolidation of peace and unity in the country.

Mr. Ofori said, the security’s agencies would continue to be equipped with the needed support to discharge their duties as enshrined in the constitution.

The judicial system he said, would be strengthened and equipped to adequately ensure dispensation of justice whilst the National Peace Council would also be given the needed attention to ensure peace and tranquillity in the country.

A major threat to peace and stability to the municipality and the nation as a whole, Mr. Ofori said, was chieftaincy disputes and appealed to the traditional leaders in Ablekuma North to resolve all outstanding differences with their neighbours and exercise maximum restraint in all their dealings.

“The Member of Parliament for Ablekuma North, Nana Akua Owusu Afriyieh observed that Independence Day was a good time and moment to examine and recall to account who we are, what we stand for and believe in, how we got here and what we have.”

Nana Afriyieh observed, should be used to examine our current progression and “the path we are charting as a people to see if we are in consonance with the vision of our freedom fighters.”

Nana Afriyieh posited that Ablekuma North could not continue to be consumed by petty differences at the detriment of development and called for unity to ensure economic prosperity.

A JHS three pupil of Odorkor Saleria Junior High School, Ms. Benedicta Ankomah on behalf of the school children expressed appreciation to President Nana Akufo-Addo for the implementation of Free SHS Programme, which has ensured more students from both the rich and poor homes getting access to secondary school education.

Present at the celebration were two former members of parliament for the area, Mr. Kwamena Bartels and Mr. Justice Joe Appiah as well as traditional rulers, the clergy and Imams.
