The festival on the theme “Let’s Eschew Greed, Unite for Peace, Development and Prosperity” promises to be unique with lots of activities.
The festival will start on August 6, with hiking on Adaklu Mountain and clean-up exercises in all Asogli Divisions.
There will be hailing of the new yam (Teyuyru) on September 1, 2022, welcoming the arrival of the yam and purification rites at Akoefe Avenui.
Togbe Ayim Adzokoto II, Paramount Chief of Takla Traditional Area and Chairman of the Planning Committee at the media launch of the festival said there would be a summit of Ewe Chiefs from Ghana, Togo and Benin on September 8.
He said there would also be education on acquisitions of land and property rights, a youth empowerment forum and an anti-corruption day celebration.
The chairman said corruption was everywhere and that the anti-corruption day included in the celebration was essential to educate the people on the effects of corruption on the socio-economic development of the country and the need to avoid it.
He said corruption has eaten into the fabric of society and retarded the country’s quest for accelerated advancement, hence the need to sensitise the people, especially the youth who were the future leaders of the country to avoid corruption.
The Chairman said the Agbogbomefia of Asogli State, Togbe Afede XIV will sit in State at the forecourt of the Asogli State Palace to receive special greetings from distinguished guests and homage from other chiefs on September 9.

The month-long event is packed with other activities including, a health walk, health screening, a football gala, an inter-schools quiz competition between Senior High Schools in the Asogli Divisions, street jams with a grand durbar to climax the event on September 10, at the Jubilee Park.
