She urged the Chamba people recommit themselves to the values of unity, inclusivity and mutual respect that have always been at the core of their community and come together to honor their past as well as to embrace their future.

On his part, the Chamba Chief of Ghana, Sarki Zakaria Tahiru Kuta also known as Zoxson De’naa revealed that the Chamba is an ethnic group in Northern Ghana and their language is known as Chamba.

He said Chamba culture and identity is the same wherever they find themselves in the world due to the history of slavery across the borders of Togo, Nigeria, Cameron and other neighboring countries.

According to him, Chamba’s re-grouped and cohabitated with other ethnic groups adding that the Chambas have lived in the Greater Accra Region for close to three centuries hence the need to celebrate its 80th anniversary of Chieftaincy.
