Essikado (W/R), Aug. 2, GNA – Nana Kobina
Nketsia V, Paramount Chief of Essikado Traditional Area, has said the disregard
for our valuable cultural traditions was comparable to throwing away the future
of every individual and the community at large.

He said proper education and training on
cultural values must therefore be upheld to enable the society develop in its
proper form adding that development and good values are intertwined.

The Paramount Chief said after the Management
of MTN Ghana presented a cheque of GH¢5,000.00, and GH¢500.00 worth of recharge
cards as part of their support to this year’s Kumdum festival.

The theme for this year’s Kumdum: “The Role of
Tradition in Community and National Development”, was chosen to remind Ghanaians
of the need to go back to their cultural values and norms that promoted social
cohesion and development.

Nana Kobina Nketsia V said the society was
fast losing its values and societal virtues such as integrity, truth and love
for one another and this is hampering our societal development.

Mr Simon Amoh, Senior Manager for South-West
Business District of MTN Ghana, expressed the company’s joy in associating its
brand with the festival.

He said tradition was central to development
because it helps to disseminate knowledge, norms and values to a given
community and serve as a good medium to change negative mindsets.

“We trust that the relationship between us
would deepen even further as we continue to associate with the Kudum Festival
for our mutual development agenda”, Mr Amoh said.
