Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Saturday joined chiefs and people of Akwapim Mampong to celebrate Ohum festival.

Addressing the durbar of chiefs and people of Mampong, Akuapim in the Eastern region, Dr. Bawumia said the festival is worth celebrating as Mampong, in the past, has produced two historic icons; Tetteh Quarshie and Dr. Oku Ampofo in the country.

Tetteh Quarshie, the adventurist and farmer, who made Ghana famous for its golden pod, which has become the backbone of the economy. The renowned Dr. Oku Ampofo’s brilliance and dedication led to the establishment of the Center for Plant medicine research which continue to affect the lives of many.

He said the festival was worth attending notwithstanding the rain, it was very refreshing to observe traditional dancers display the rich Ghanaian culture.

“The display of rich Ghanaian culture and tradition was very refreshing to observe.”

Dr. Bawumia entreated Nananom to work together with the local administrative authorities to rekindle the spirit of communal labour to help deal with filth in our societies.
