Torgbui Tenge Dzokoto Gligui VII, Paramount Chief of Amugo-Wego Traditional Area, has celebrated Christmas with school children from his traditional area.

The celebration was aimed at motivating the pupils and encouraging parents of their roles in securing a better future for their children through education.

A total of 30 children, between the ages of 4 and 7 years, were selected from the three Wings of Anyako namely, Lashibi, Adortri and Woe.

The criteria were based on academic performance, discipline, respect and potential leadership qualities.

Torgbui Tenge Gligui Dzokoto VII, also the Head of the Bate Clan of Anlo, who joined the children together with some other chiefs and elders of Anyako, said the event was significant towards better education for his people.

He said Anyako Konu had an enviable record of producing excellent scholars.

“The result is that we boast of all kinds of professionals and knowledgeable people. Unfortunately, our success has not made it possible to remember where our foundations were laid.

“It is for this reason that we are launching this annual programme to motivate all the children of Anyako-Konu to excel and be counted. The idea is to catch them young, nurture and support them to excel, to ensure that the selection is fair and credible,” he added.

Torgbui Dzokoto Gligui VI commended the selection Team and the parents by urging them to continue to send their children to school, especially the girl-child.

He appealed to teachers to enforce discipline at all times “so that together we can turn the bad situation around.”

Mr Wisdom Seade, the Assembly Member for the area, noted that the future of children must be given the needed attention.

He expressed gratitude to Togbi Dzokoto-Gligui VII for the gesture.

Torgbui Dzokoto- Gligui VII was accompanied by Togbi Akaba VII, a Senior Divisional chief from the Adortri Wing of Anyako, Mama Awotsu Adzagba II of Anyako Afekotuiame, who is also the Royal Protocol Director for Togbi Tenge Dzokoto Gligui VII.

Some of the beneficiary pupils the Ghana News Agency (GNA) interacted with expressed happiness for the offer.

Madam Confidence Fenuku, a parent, said the gesture would boost the learning culture of their kids and commended Togbi Dzokoto Gligui for the offer.

School bags, exercise books, play and writing materials and Christmas souvenirs were presented to the pupils.
