Support cultural activities in basic schools – Amakom-hene urges Gov’t

President Nana Addo

To uplift the cultural activities in our primary school, Amakomhene Nana Adu Mensah Asare has urged the government to increase the amount allocated to cultural coordinators.

Nana Amakomhene who double as Kumasi Metro education cultural coordinator said it’s very worrying seeing our youth adopting the Western culture which has negatively impacted their lives.

Nana Adu Mensah in an exclusive interview with Metro News defuse the notion that anybody who actively indulged in cultural activities obviously is an idol worshipper, but in any case, before the Whites came we were worshipping our God’s.

At the Ashanti regional Inter-schools cultural festival hosted at Bonwire in the Ejisu Juaben Municipality, the Kumasi Metro director of education Mr. Atta Asante who represented the Ashanti regional director of education Mrs Mary Owusu Achiaw said cultural activities has a significant role to play in our education curriculum and urge the participating students to take everything seriously to make their schools proud and select to represent the region at the national cultural celebration at Tamale in the northern region.

Bonwirehene, Nana Bobbie Ansah IV who was the Chairman of the four days event appealed to the judges to be circumspect when delivering their judgement and further congratulated the event organisers.

He further suggested to the Education Ministry and Ghana Education Service to improve cultural studies in our education curriculum and make it a priority.

Finally the regional Cultural Coordinator Mr Opoku Agyemang Kofi said the event is teaching youth more about our cultural activities and norms especially education.
