President of Ga-Dangme Concerned Youth Group, Nii Ayaafio Tetteh I, has called on Ga-Dangmes to unite.

According to the outspoken leader, no nation or community can develop without unity.

He, therefore, called on Dangmes in particular and Ghanaians in general to bury their differences to promote peace in the country.

Speaking at a special awards ceremony to honour traditional leaders in Nungua, including Nungua Gborbu Wulomor Shitse, overlord of Nungua, Nummo Borketey Larweh, La Kpa Wulormor, Numo Yemo Obroni and Numo Gbelenfo, Osu Wulomo, the president of the association said, “Unity and development are bedfellows, we can do little when we are divided, but when we stand united, we become unbeatable.

“I want to sincerely thank all the traditional leaders from Nungua, La and the other communities for ensuring a successful and peaceful Homowo celebration.

“We are presenting these citations and other awards to you. You have outstanding leadership qualities, and I believe this will encourage us all to carve for peace. You ensured that peace prevailed during the festive season.

“We heard of confusion during the celebration of the festive season in some areas, but we are proud to say you ensured a peaceful celebration of the season and will no doubt bond us together as a people.

“We are our own enemies. When a Ga realizes his brother is making progress in life, he tries to frustrate him, but that can’t be said about our Akan brothers. In the past, neighbours exchanged food not because they couldn’t cook, but it was beautiful and healthy. Let’s remain united, let’s esteem unity and I believe we will achieve a lot as a people.”

The recognized chiefs also expressed gratitude to Nii Ayaafio for his efforts in promoting peace in the country, as well as recognizing the efforts of personalities, who are excelling in their respective fields of endeavour.
