NCD Governor, Powes Parkop has called on city residents to make health, fitness and wellness be part of their lifestyle.

Speaking at the ‘Walk and Yoga for Life’ at Paga Hill ring road yesterday (05 August 2018), Governor Parkop told the thousands who attended to live a high quality life.

“We must lift our life to be healthy, fit, and well, and to have a healthy lifestyle,” says Governor Parkop.

Mr Parkop urged the city residents to make the health, fitness and wellness to be part of their life and lifestyle and says it will be successful other than just going it occasionally on Sundays when we walk; on the week days we have yoga, kick-boxing, acrobatics or other fitness classes.
