"This is the only way to bring them into the main stream of activities taking place globally." Touching on the festival, he lauded the celebration, when he said: "A festival is a showcase of our cultural heritage and values. Because of the impact of the Western culture of our youth; it is important that such occasions are use to revisit the birth of our culture."

Addressing a durbar of the chiefs and people of Koforidua to mark the fifteen anniversary of the ruling New Patriotic Party, Vice President Mahama stressed that Ghana is a secular State, hence the need of all Ghanaians to respect the status quo. Daasebre Professor Emeritus Oti Boateng, Omanhene, of Juaben, said it was wrong for anyone to claim that his or her religion was better than the other. He appealed to Ghanaians to strive for peace and unity to facilitate national development.
