Prof.Nana Ama Browne Klutse Attends Kormantse Okyir Bentsir festival 2023

Professor Nana Ama Browne Klutse, an Associate Professor and Head of Physics Department of the University of Ghana who also doubles as the Co-Chair on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change of the United Nations joined the Chiefs and people of Kormantse to celebrate the Okyir Festival.

She humbly honoured an invitation extended to her by the Kormantse Okyir Festival Planning Committee as the Guest Speaker in this year’s Festival.

Prof Klutse extended her humanitarian services to support the activities that characterised the festival to make it a success.

The theme for this year’s Okyir festival dubbed, “Let Us Rise and Build” which painted a clear picture in everyone’s mind to ensure the Community of Kormantse and the country understand their respective roles and responsibilities in contributing their quota to the development of society.

He assured the gathering that voting for the next NDC government will bring progress and economic relief to Ghanaians.

Prof. Klutse admonished all parents present to pay critical attention to their children’s education thus to study hard to achieve their future aspirations because without proper education their lives would be whimsical.

Prof.Kluste as a female advocate advised the local girls strive hard especially in their education so they can cross the life hurdles of becoming responsible women in society.

Reacting to the recent climate change in Ghana, Prof Klutse revealed that the sea levels have risen and changing the state of the marine environment and cautioned the festival celebrants to be very careful on how to dispose of plastic waste, since these materials are washed back into the sea, which affect marine life including that of fish.

She also educated the Fisher folks, the growth of phytoplankton under the sea, which serves as feed for fish consumption, has been hindered by these plastic wastes.

Prof Klutse urged the traditional leaders in the community to enact and implement by-laws that will help in promoting the education and progress of the community.

As an astute NDC party member, she used the opportunity to admonish all to pray for HE John Mahama, the flag bearer of the party for strength and health and vote massively for the NDC in the forthcoming 2024 general elections and also vote for the parliamentary candidate, Dr. Prince Kojo Arhin as the MP for mfantsiman to enable John Mahama to end the suffering and untold economic hardship of Ghanaians.

Earlier in the day, Prof Klutse joined the family, friends, and NDC party members at Cape Coast for the “Dahy3” or one week observation of late Araba Tagoe, who was a NEC member before her passing.
