PupilsChief Imoro Baba-Issa, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the National Council of Zongo Chiefs (NCZC) has said that the development of educational infrastructure in Zongo communities is very crucial to the improvement  of people’s living standards in those areas.

He said it would ensure that the Zongo dwellers got the best education, and added that there was the need for all the Zongo communities to collaborate and fight for a common goal.

Chief Baba-Issah made these observations at a ceremony organized by the NCZC to interact with the newly-elected Members of Parliament (MP’s) from Zongo and Muslims communities nationwide in Accra on Friday.

“One needs to acquire advanced education, be it academic degrees or other professional qualifications, to become very relevant in our national affairs”.

He advised the Zongo communities on the urgent need to unite and take initiatives to improve life in their communities, especially sanitation, in order for Government to support their initiatives.

“We have to keep our environment clean; this should be a matter of concern and importance to all.”

Chief Baba-Issah also appealed to government institutions to work in collaboration with the Zongo chiefs to address the challenges of youth unemployment facing the Zongo communities. “There is the need for us to start tackling this canker before it becomes a serious national pandemic”.

Chief Imoro Baba Issa also on behalf of the NCZC congratulated the Zongo community on the level of discipline and tolerance exhibited before, during and after the just ended Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

He called for active co-operation among members of Parliament and chiefs for smooth operation and understanding of activities in the zongo communities.

“I hope will work as MP’s to help correct the misconception and negative image painted about Zongo communities.

“It is our duty to help promote the Zongo communities in our own small way, as well as on bigger platforms such as the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana.”

Dr Mustafa Ahmed, MP for North-Ayawaso on behalf of the MP’s thanked the chiefs for their support towards the development of Zongo communities.

He said  the MP’s will continue to  support the efforts of the chiefs to achieve their goals and to improve the living standards of people in the communities.
