Nana Amoah urged various traditional leaders to identify and mobilize human and financial resources to contribute towards holistic development of the Amosima community.
The Chief of Amosima stated that nation building should not be the burden on the shoulder of government alone but a shared responsibility.
The festival would therefore bring together stakeholders of diverse background to give ideas and inputs to accelerate development.
He appealed to the Government to construct the road from Eguase to Amosima which included their town roads to boost the local economy adding that the community’s major employment was farming.
The nature of the roads, he lamented was affecting the smooth activities of the farmers when transporting their products to the markets for sale.
He said the festival brings about unity and peace and the promotion of their culture and values and therefore, called for the full participation of the people to support and contribute their quota towards a peaceful and successful festival.
