She said culture teaches values like morality
which are crucial to leadership and effective governance.

The Deputy Minister said this when she
launched the 2017 Kumdum Festival on the theme “the role of tradition in
community and national development.”

Ms Kusi entreated traditional authorities to
therefore embrace the basic tenets of the Kumdum festival as the bedrock of
ethical living in society.

She said the government was passionate to see
all Ghanaians to live together in peace irrespective of the varied backgrounds.

The President, according to her, would ensure
that everyone was catered for under the national development crusade, adding
“it is in this connection that I appeal to Nananom to lend your support to the
key policy development initiatives and flagship Programmes”.

Nana Kwesi Agyeman IX, the Omanhene of Lower
Dixcove who gave the background to the festival, said a hunter on one of his
usual expeditions saw some dwarfs in a forest at Ahanta Aboadze in the Western
Region performing the dance.

He said the practice continued for a long time
and after several observations, the hunter copied the movement of the dance and
later taught community members.

Nana Kwesi Agyeman IX stated that the essence
of celebrating the Kundum festival was to engender communal spirit, promote
oneness as well as use the occasion to settle long standing family disputes.

He urged natives abroad to discard the
perception that something untoward would happen to them should they come home
for the celebration and rather come home to support in building better
communities.
