People in Tachiman North District have been charged to promote
national unity as Ghana marks its 58th Independence Day Anniversary
The story of our nation, since its proclamation of independence on 6th
March 1957, by our nation's founder, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, is a
story which we continue to recall. On the night of its announcement,
the excitement and happiness we experienced was clear. And as Dr.
Nkrumah uttered those famous words, "At long last the battle is ended,
and thus our beloved country Ghana, is free forever", our fathers and
mothers faced the future with joy and excitement.
Speaking on the occasion of Ghana's 58th Independence Day Anniversary
celebration held on Friday, 6th March, 2015, at the Roman Catholic
School Park in Tuobodom, District Chief Executive of Tachiman North,
Hon. Anthony Kwaku Marnuh said the differences of ethnic groups, races
and religions should not divide us.
"Today is a day to celebrate Ghana, and celebrate ourselves as a
district. Today is a time to feel proud and express love for everyone
and everything that has brought us this far. I Urge families, Churches
and educational institutions to continue to inculcate a sense of
unity, patriotism and nationalism in our children. Destiny brought us
together as one nation. Our ethnic and cultural diversity is a source
of strength not, weakness. We must reject any attempt to sow any
strife and discord among us. Today is also a time to ask ourselves,
"Where dodo we want to go from here? And how do we get there?"
According to him, Ghanaians must strive to build a nation devoid of
our political affiliations and we must be able to put the past behind
us and seek only to pursue an agenda that will help to pull our
resources, human and capital, to build a just, fair and prosperous
society where there is an equitable distribution of our nation's
wealth to the benefit of all our people.
"I wish to take this opportunity to bring to your attention, His
Excellency the President's maximum commitment to ensuring a government
that would develop our country through patriotism and national unity.
The President has always intimated that whatever our differences,
whatever our politics, we must pull together and rise to meet the
challenges of our time. For the long-term survival of our nation, we
must agree and commit ourselves to a multi-partisan process to secure
the future of this country and that there is no need for arguments and
debates over trivial issues to the detriment of the development of the
