Tangoba Abayage throws Christmas party for over 600 pupils in Navro-Pungu

The Christmas party is the fifth in a row that the former Upper East Regional Minister has organised for the children in the area

Former Upper East Regional Minister, Tangoba Abayage, on Tuesday (27 December, 2022) feted over 600 basic school pupils in Pungu in the Navrongo municipality.

The party dubbed the “All Uniform Kids Party” was the fifth in a row since the maiden one in 2018.

The party was characterised by lots of merry making, eating and fun competitive games, with pupils selected from basic schools including the Navro-Pungu, Wusungu Dimbasinia, Bawiu, and Nyangua primary schools, among others in attendance.

In her speech, the former ambassador to Italy, underscored why she has been putting the event together since 2018, noting it was to create the avenue for the pupils to refresh and social.

Abayage, who intermittently joined the pupils on the dance floor, advised the pupils to take their class lessons seriously, be disciplined and obedient to their parents and teachers.

She explained to the pupils that discipline, obedience and studying well, were virtues that will help them secure a brighter future.

“If you don’t study well or take your books and lessons seriously, you will become a school dropout. Your colleagues will go further and leave you behind. And I’m not sure you want that to happen to you. So, please take your studies seriously.”

For the young girls, Abayage urged them to desist from engaging in premature sex. She urged them to report advances of unscrupulous men to their teachers and parents for the necessary actions against them.

“And to you, the girls, when you start developing breasts, some men will begin to come to you for sex. When they come don’t mind them. They want to destroy your future. So, don’t entertain them. Report them to your parents and teachers. I am particularly talking to the young girls in Junior High Schools,” she said.


The Kassena-Nankana municipal chief executive, Joseph Adongo who was guest at the party, heaped commendations on the former minister for her consistency in putting together the party.

While Adongo also commended teachers in the municipality for diligently discharging their duties of helping teach and train pupils in the various schools, he prayed for God’s continuous support for Abayage so she is able to continue with her charitable endeavours.

Adongo also emphasised the need for the pupils to be obedient and studious. He intimated that the Assembly will continue to do its bit to improve education in the municipality.

For his part, the deputy director at the Kassena-Nankana municipal education directorate in charge of planning and monitoring, Albert Adonawura, commended teachers for their efforts throughout the academic year and urged them to uphold the standards.

He also commended Tangoba Abayage for her kind gestures, while praying she is able to extend the event to cover more pupils in future organisations.

He said, “We are praying for you so that you continue your kindness because many of the children look up to you and take you as their role model.”
