According to him, "Ghana is at a point where peace and unity is needed more than ever since that is the only way the government can successfully implement its numerous development agenda for the benefit of all Ghanaians.

"There can never be development anywhere in the world when there is absence of peace and unity among the people. We must cherish the peace and unity we are enjoying and all efforts must be made to jealously guard against any act that may disturb the state of affairs", the MCE stated.


Mr Takyi was speaking at the 62nd Independence Anniversary parade on Wednesday March 6, 2019 at the Presbyterian Senior High School Park, Bechem.

This Year’s anniversary was on the Theme: “Celebrating Peace and Unity”.

Touching on the country’s unique identity, the MCE stated that, Ghanaians are one people despite our cultural, religious and political differences; thus there was no point allowing petty squabbles to disintegrate us.

He further explained that, Ghana is a country where everyone feels a sense of belongingness and it therefore makes it very important that "we coexist peacefully to develop the country for the sake of ourselves and generations yet unborn."

On free SHS, the MCE underscored that, its implementation was aimed at ensuring that all Ghanaian youth are provided with quality education and long life earning opportunities, stressing that "this is in no doubt the surest way to ensure the advancement of our democracy and the development of the country at large.

He further announced that, the government is set to roll out a new standard base curriculum from kindergarten to primary six.

He noted that this curriculum has drawn up the best practices from over the world, and will focus on making Ghanaian children confident, innovative, creative thinking, digitally literate, well rounded and patriotic citizens.

Mathematics, Science, reading, writing and creativity, he said, will therefore be at the heart of this new curriculum.
