Mr Fuzzy Kombat, Upper East Regional Director of the Centre for National Culture, has called on the citizenry to show commitment to time management in order to facilitate national development.
He stressed that time consciousness is one of the cardinal attitudinal change needed in Ghana to drive national progress and growth.
Mr Kombat who made the call in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Bolgatanga, noted that time management is a big problem in Ghana although it is the only means for successfully development.
He also slammed the discrimination against women in the society, saying it was wrong for females to be oppressed, rejected, depersonalised and be denied their basic rights.
Mr Kombat expressed dissatisfaction that women are barred from social interventions such as education, leading to massive school drop out among the girl-child.
He asked Ghanaians to show interest in their cultural heritage, which he said could be galvanised for development.
The Regional Director said the traditional mode of communication and story telling, riddles, proverbs and communication (town crier or gong-gong beater) have stood the test of time.
Mr Kombat observed that language and drama are components of the Ghanaian culture that should be developed and explored.
