Okaikwei North Assembly Rounds-Off ‘Ghana Month Celebrations’ With Cultural Games

The Management and Staff of Okaikwei North Municipal Assembly on Thursday March 28, 2024 crowned the month-long ‘Ghana Month Celebration’ with cultural games.
The event saw staff playing some indigenous Ghanaian games like Oware, Ludu, Draft among others.
The staff were also treated to local drinks like Palm-wine, Sobobo, lamogine and some other Ghanaian foods.
The Municipal Chief Executive, Honourable Boye Laryea in an address applauded the Culture and Tourism Unit of the Assembly headed by Ms Georgina Akambasi for organsing the event.
He assured that a budget would be allocated to the Unit in the Assembly’s mid-year budget review to make provision for the celebration of the event in 2024.
“Next year we expect it to be bigger than this, we should all put some efforts in the Ghana month to make sure it is celebrated well, Ghana is our home…” Honourable Laryea stated.
He added: “I will suggest that if we don’t have any substantial provision [for the Unit], let us think about mid-year budget review so that we can increase the budget line for Georgina and her people so that we can plan very well for next year’s Ghana month. This is really the first time, congratulations to all of you for this event.”
Drawing inspiration from the success of the event, the Okaikwei North MCE tasked other Heads of Department of the Assembly to be innovative and bring new initiatives to propel the Assembly to enviable heights.
The Municipal Coordinating Director, Mr Francis Mensah stated that the event is to reflect on the productivity of the Assembly.
He said the day was for both management and staff to play and come together to think about the productivity and the image of the Assembly as a whole.
The MCE played the Oware game with some members of staff, reminiscing his days as a young boy growing up in his time.
Meanwhile, the event also featured a health talk on spine health with officers from the Chiropractic And Wellness Centre.
Mr. Solomon Abakal a Senior Chiropractic Examiner at the facility took the gathering through some bad sitting positions and the various lifestyles that injure spine health and gravely affect the health of the staff.
