Ejura Sekyedumase Municipal was not left out in the celebration of the 67th Independence Day.  This Memorable event was observed by the Municipality at L.A School Park, Anyinasu under the theme “Our Democracy, Our Pride” on Wednesday 6th March, 2024.

Speaking at the event, the Municipal Chief Executive, Hon. Dr. Kingsley Osei commended the hardworking Farmers, Teachers, Health Professionals and all workers in general who had worked tirelessly for the development of the country.  He affirmed that there cannot be a better theme for this year’s celebration than

“Our Democracy, Our Pride”.

He said the Nation stands tall when it comes to practicing democracy and is popularly referred to as the beacon of democracy in Africa.

He added that to help sustain this achievement, all hands must be on deck and not be spectators to rejuvenate the can-do spirit in all Ghanaians to take their destiny and pride in their own hands.

“The time to do this is now and the people to do this are no body than us”,

he emphasized.

Hon. Dr. Kingsley Osei stressed that sixty-seven years in the life of a Nation was no mean achievement, it was worth of time, energy and commitment to mark the day with might and strength.  He urged all to work selflessly to ensure sustainable development in a peaceful environment befitting a sixty-seven-year independent Nation.

He said the prosperous Ghana which we all desire can only be achieved if we sit up and do what is expected of us as individuals and collectively as a Nation.

He admonished the school children to desist from acts such as alcoholism, fornication, disobedience, dishonesty, among others.  He encouraged them to stick to their books and channel their youthful exuberance into productive ventures so as to secure their future and contribute their quota to the development of Mother Ghana.

Hon. Dr. Kingsley Osei finally uttered words of caution to all and sundry not to be influence by politicians to find themselves in trouble before, during and after the election. “We must be alive to reap the fruits of the government of Ghana”, he added.
