Addressing the chiefs and people of Nabdam during the 66th Independence Day celebration at Zanlerigu on Monday, Madam Anamoo indicated that the programme would equip young people with the requisite skills, and also make them employable in the district.
“…… government’s commitment to investing in the educational sector remains unshaken. So, government intends to consolidate the Free SHS policy by including the Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) and expand access to tertiary education.
“Let me use this opportunity to inform you that the District Assembly has started liaising with the regional TVET office to establish a TVET institution in the district which will equip our teeming youth with practical skills in order to help employment in the district,” revealed.
This year’s anniversary in the Nabdam District brought together nineteen (19) basic school pupils as well as students of Kongo Senior High School. It also brought together traditional rulers, security agencies, heads of departments, Tailors and Dressmakers Association of Ghana, Textile Weavers Association of Ghana,. Dressmakers and Beauticians Association of Ghana, and many more.
It was themed “our unity, our strength, our purpose”.
Madam Anamoo who doubles as the head of the District Security Council (DISEC) lauded people of the district for peacefully coexisting over the years.
The successes accomplished by the district, particularly in the area of chieftaincy was attributed to the people’s ability to work in togetherness; adding that there was the need for them to continue being united so as to foster the development of the district.
“Ladies and gentlemen, the people of Nabrug have already demonstrated that they are united with a common purpose and this has resulted in the success stories that I am going to remind you about. First of all, it was through unity that our paramountcies were created and remain revered across the length and breadth of the country.
Also, it worth noting that our togetherness has earned the birth of the Nabdam District that further opened the door for numerous developmental programmes and projects that have effectively served our people,” Madam Anamoo added.
