The Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu has urged the winner of TV3’s 2023 Ghana’s Strongest, Godfred Akolbila Adagkuga to be an ambassador of peace. As an ambassador for peace, Mr. Akolbila would propagate messages and take initiatives that would help promote peace, stability and unity in the region and beyond.
Mr. Yakubu said the region has been unfortunately noted for many conflict-related and as such, recognisable people in influential positions, like the 2023 winner of Ghana’s Strongest should play their part to ensure that sanity is maintained in the region.
The Upper East regional minister made these statements when Godfred Akolbila paid a courtesy call on him in his office.
“I think that you should try to organise and go around speaking to the youth, especially for peace. You can go around and say look, instead of doing things that are not lawful you can also get something profitable doing. We have a lot of problems in this region, we have chieftaincy issues, we have tribal issues, we have land issues, you know the Bawku issue. Even in Bolga, we have chieftaincy issues. I think you can add peace initiative and go round to talk to the youth.”
Mr. Akolbila was in the region to appreciate the love and support the people gave him over the years during the competition. On his part, the Upper East regional Commander of the Ghana National Fire Service, Assistant Chief Fire Officer I Genfi Boateng expressed some level of excitement following his win. ACFO I encouraged Mr. Akolbila to focus and win more titles in Ghana and beyond.
“We pray that this title you will do your best and maintained it next season, and we pray again that as you exit people that you training people that are under you will also come out to lift the mountain so that the name of the Upper East will be lifted high”
