Former Upper East Regional Minister, Tangoba Abayage has celebrated this year’s National Chocolate Day at Pungu Nimbasenia in the Navrongo Central Constituency in the Kassena-Nankana Municipality in the Upper East Region.

She shared bars of rich Ghanaian chocolate to children and some adults in the Pungu Nimbasenia community.

February 14, is known worldwide as St. Valentine’s Day, when people, especially lovers express special love to each other. With time, the day has become a day, not for only lovers, but anyone or group that has a cause to show someone or group some love.

In 2005 the National Chocolate Day was instituted in Ghana through the initiative of the then Minister of Tourism, Jake Obetsebi Lamptey.

It has since then been a national day and one of the events on the calendar of the Ghana Tourism Authority. Unfortunately, the National Chocolate Day has had low patronage and often has been associated with urban dwellers.

Tangoba Abayage’s celebration of the National Chocolate Day at her hometown, Pungu Nimbasenia will leave lasting memories on the minds of the children who had a whole bar of rich brown Ghanaian chocolate to themselves.


A day before the National Chocolate Day celebration, Tangoba Abayage was invited by the people of Pungu Manchoro to pump out the first water from a borehole she had funded for the community.


“I indicated to them that for me, water and humanity are inseparable. That is what gives me the motivation to keep providing water as long as I can.” She wrote on her Facebook wall.

Tangoba Abayage is on record to be spending February 14 (Valentine’s Day) with the less privileged in society and children in the Kassena-Nankana area and the Bolgatanga Municipality. She is still in touch with a quadruplet she adopted in 2008 and continues to refer to them as her children.
