Kumbun Naa advises parents to invest in their children’s education



Using the recent appointment of Dr Nashiru Issahaku as governor of the Central Bank of Ghana as evidence that education matters, the paramount chief of the Kumbungu traditional area, Naa Iddrisu Abu II has called on parents to invest in their children’s education to ensure the continuous development of the northern region.

He appealed to parents, especially those within the Kumbungu traditional area to show keen interest in their children’s education.The chief made the call when he interacted with the media at his palace at Kumbungu on the appointment of Dr Nashiru Issahaku as the Governor of Central Bank of Ghana.

On behalf of the people of the area, the Kumbungu Na expressed his gratitude to president John Dramani Mahama for appointing a royal son of Kumbungu to one of the highest positions of the land, adding that he and his people were excited with the appointment.

The traditional leader reiterated that there is no investment that can benefit the whole society more than education, hence every parent must endeavor to make their children’s education a priority. He reminded the people of Kumbungu that Nashiru’s appointment wouldn’t have been possible if he was not educated or less educated.

The chief was grateful to the president’s advisers for Dr. Nashiru’s  appointment. He then took the opportunity to call on the president to speed up the tarring of the Tamale- Kumbungu road. According to the Kumbung Naa, it would look weird for a central bank governor to drive on a dusty road to his home.

On the upcoming elections, the Kumbungu chief advised the people of the north, especially those in his traditional area to unite and see each other as one people as the country heads towards the 2016 general elections.

Naa Iddrisu Abu II said whatever thought one has about any political party should be expressed on the ballot paper and not through other means. He said the polling centers on Election Day are not battle fields and should not be made so during the November 7 polls.
