The District Coordinating Director for Awutu-Senya, Mr Edward Gbinnye, has urged parents to always create conducive environment for nurturing their children into adulthood.
Children are the greatest asset of the nation and therefore need peaceful and united home to develop, he said.
Mr Gbinnye was addressing a parade of School children, voluntary organisation and other benevolent societies to celebrate Ghana's 52nd Independence Anniversary at Awutu Beraku.
The parade was on the theme: “Unity and Peace – Pillars for national development”.
Mr Gbinnye said the Awutu-Senya district was currently going through some challenges, including haphazard development without access roads and lack of sanitation facilities and appealed to community leaders to help the Assembly to find solution to the problems.
He also urged the people to honour their tax obligation to enable the Assembly increase its internally-generated revenue for accelerated development.
He advised the children to keep to their books and desist from immorality and other anti-social vices.
