Bakatue Takes Off
In view of that, the Edina Traditional Council on Tuesday launched the festival in grand style with hundreds of people, including politicians and other opinion leaders, in attendance.
The event was also used to launch the Edinaman Educational Foundation, which would offer assistance to sponsor needy but brilliant students in the community.
The festival, which would be on the theme, ‘The Time to Promote Ghana’s Trade Potentials is now… Patronize Ghana Made, be a proud Ghanaian,’ is scheduled from July 1- 6, 2014.
Speaking at the launch, the Central Regional Minister, Emmanuel K.T Addo called for unity among the people of the area to promote total development in the area.
Mr Addo stressed the need for all to contribute their quota towards a successful festival.
He urged all to bury their differences since they are one people with a common destiny.
The Paramount chief of the area, Nana Kojo Conduah, emphasized the need for Ghanaians to patronize made in Ghana goods.
Nana Conduah appealed to pastors to preach the teachings of the Bible rather than condemning the customs and traditions of the people of this country.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for the area, Dr Nana Ato Arthur donated bulbs of streetlights worth GH¢3,500.00 to the traditional area and also presented GH¢2,000.00 to the Edinaman Educational Foundation.
