The Deputy Western North Regional Minister, Alex Tetteh, has observed that Ghana is using the global dynamism in the area of technology to lose its rich culture.
He emphasized that culture cannot be done away with but rather only needs to be sanitized to eliminate the oddities and preserve the rich ones for  future generation.
Mr. Tetteh made the observation at the opening of the Bosomoiso Circuit’s Inter-Schools Cultural festival at Sefwi Aboduam in the Sefwi Wiawso Municipality of the Western North Region.
The festival on the theme “Cultural Education, A Tool for Promoting Patriotism and Socio-Economic Transformation”, was participated by seven basic schools in the Circuit namely: Wiase, Bosomoiso, Aboduam and Penakrom–Nyamekrom, among others.
The schools competed in activities including Poetry Recital, Cultural Dance, Choral Music, Drum Language, Drama and Crafts Exhibition.
In her welcome address, the Circuit Supervisor, Rita Baidoo, who initiated the programme, gave the purpose of festival.

Opening it, the Deputy Western North Regional Minister, Alex Djornobuah Tetteh, commended the Educational Directorate and the Traditional Rulers for helping to bring back our culture which is being faded away.

He therefore advised the public to use the festival to go back to their roots and patronize Ghanaian prints, dishes and other locally made products.

The acting Municipal Cultural Organizer, Paul Arthur, who gave the keynote address, described culture as a vehicle used to promote patriotism and domestic products.

He cautioned against the use of nude dresses which dent the image of our rich culture and encouraged the pupils to patronize their local languages, food and wears.
