Bosome Freho District joined the rest of the nation to celebrate the 66th Independence Day on 6th March 2023 with great patriotic fervor and zeal. The theme for the celebration was “Our Unity, Our Strength.”

The National Anthem was played after a prayer was offered by Rev. Bright Baffour Boachie, who was joined by the District Co-ordinating Director, staff from the district Assembly, the Member of Parliament, Hon. Assembly members, participating schools, and district chief and elders. The Anniversary entailed a short celebration including a cultural display, an inspection of the parade, and a march past by the various invited schools.

The welcome speech was delivered by Mr. Solomon Owusu, the district education director. He expressed his gratitude to everyone in attendance for forgoing other, no less important, personal obligations to participate in the 66th anniversary of the country’s independence.

In his speech, Hon. Akwasi Darko Boateng, a member of parliament for the district, emphasized the importance of maintaining community harmony since it serves as a driver for growth.

The District Coordinating Director gave a keynote speech. He stressed independence’s significance as well as the anniversary’s theme’s applicability.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Samuel Kyei-Baffour (District Coordinating Director) said that cooperation is necessary to help the government advance its goal of improving the entire country for better living conditions for all.

He made remarks about how teenage pregnancies are damaging the district’s reputation and urged for the enforcement of the Assembly and Community by-laws as a way to stop teenagers from going to locations that support teenage pregnancies. The District Coordinating Director took advantage of the occasion to advocate for the use of community mining as opposed to galamsey operations, which are damaging water bodies.

He advised the young people, particularly students, to exercise greater restraint and abide by the norms and regulations governing the institution.

Mr. Samuel Kyei-Baffour thanked everyone who participated, in particular the teachers and pupils, for arriving at the parade grounds. He recognized the security agencies’ ongoing efforts to keep the district’s law and order.

The program came to an end with a prayer led by the Chief Imam of Asiwa.

The member of parliament for the constituency cut sod to start the construction of an Astroturf for the community.
