Centre for National Culture Says Culture is tool to Unite Northerners


The Northern Regional Director of the Centre for National Culture, Gladys Tang emphasizes the need to use culture as a tool to unite the people and promote the nation’s cultural heritage to attract the needed foreign investment.

She says cultural practices that are divergent to the growth and development of the nation must be avoided to ensure that the nation brings up a crop of youth that are committed to shoulder the positive development of the nation for posterity. She made the call last Saturday during the launch of the maiden edition of the Miss AFRO pageant in Tamale.

Madam Gladys describes the Northern part of Ghana as a region with rich cultural values that need to be protected and maintained for the future and generations yet unborn. She, however, in her own way accepts the concept and urges traditional leaders, stakeholders, organizations and individuals to join hands to promote the Northern culture as well as tourism in order to bring development to the region.

The show intends to bring together ten young ladies from tertiary and university levels from the three regions of the North. Contestants will be groomed in a house for four weeks with tremendous tuition on various cultures, tourism and everything that is special about the region.  The show is also to help the youth know more about their culture and to attract investors to sell out the tradition and culture to the world to enhance development.

Addressing the gathering, the Chief of Entertainment in the region, Mohammed Hafiz Dema Naa I, on his part announces his support to issues that intend to bring development to the region and advises the public not to throw away their culture but to promote it to the world.

Meanwhile, the founder of the Miss AFRO pageant, Dorcas Gayibor Adzoa Ewenam is also the 1st runner-up of last year’s contest
