Farouk Aliu Mahama, Son of the late Former Vice President of Ghana, Alhaji Aliu Mahama, has appealed to Dagomba students to be ambassadors of peace as part of efforts to bring development to the people of Dagbon.
According to Farouk Aliu Mahama, the only way to bring development to the Dagbon community was to pave way for peace.
He was saddened by recurring conflicts in Dagbon describing it as a major Hindrance to developing the area.
Farouk Aliu Mahama was addressing Dagomba students at the University Of Education Winneba, in the Central region, during the Handing over Ceremony of DASA.
The theme of his lecture was ‘Championing Peace In Dagbon: The Role Of Dagomba Students.’
‘If you look at the current chieftaincy dispute that has bedeviled us as a tribe, DASA as a students wing of Dagbon needs to make our chiefdom realize that recurring conflicts in Dagbon is only depriving us from development,” he emphasized.
Farouk Aliu Mahama further reiterated that it is only the people of Dagbon who can make the peace everybody is clamouring for.
Farouk Aliu Mahama has over the years championed the activities of the elephant tradition up north with his generous support towards the work of the party and on every occasion, he does it with the will to do more. Not to mention the numerous citations he received for his outstanding contribution to the success and growth of various students bodies in our universities.
This is a person who believes not in what people can do for him but rather what he can do for them. He has made service to party and people an important tool in his life. We should remember that in the twilight of once life when all is said and done the quality of one life boils down to the quality of your contribution to other people progress.
He has in over the years succeeded in accomplishing and projecting the legacy the late vice president has left behind. His support and passion for the growth of the youth wing of the New Patriotic Party was honoured by students of Africa University College of Communication for his outstanding contribution to the activities of Tescon.
This was not the end another body that has seen his enormous contribution to the progress of student’s leadership bodies in our various universities was the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS).This eleemosynary character seems to be running through his family both his maternal and the paternal side.
