The Chiefs and people of Pelungu Traditional Area in the Nabdam District of the Upper East Region have observed their annual Ku’urr festival with a call on the people to desist from practicing open defecation particularly at the market square.

Issues of education, health, teenage pregnancy, early marriages, the lack of agricultural services and unmotorable roads were highlighted during the event.

Ku’urr festival is an annual festival celebrated by Nabdams in the Pelungu traditional area to thank God and their ancestors for a successful farming season.
It is aimed at renewing the sense of unity among the people.

The festival also serves as a platform to encourage the people to develop their human resource base which is the foundation of their vision and mission towards the growth and development of the Pelungu Traditional Area.

Addressing the gathering on the theme “Ending open defecation for a healthier, prosperous Pelungu”, the chief of Pelungu Traditional Area, Naab Sierig Soore Sobil, said open defecation is currently a major problem at the Pelungu market, due to the fact that there is only one decent toilet facility at the market which is inadequate for one of the biggest and most well-attended markets in the upper east region.

A number of dignitaries graced the occasion.

The youth in the area were charged to be disciplined and focus on their education and other skills training for a better future.
