Of the ban on noise making and matters arising…

On Monday, 23rd April 2018, the Ga Traditional Council (GTC) announced a ban on drumming and noise-making in the traditional area starting May 14 to June 14, 2018. The month long ban is a custom that heralds the celebration of the Homowo Festival of the chiefs and people of Ga Mashie.

During this period, the desire of the traditional authority is that there will be total peace and calm and that all persons, groups and organizations will shy away from making noise. The GTC insists that the ban and consequential silence has spiritual connotations for them, ahead of the festival.

In fact, beyond the presser, there was also a joint release, signed by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly and the GTC that emphasized the manner in which we are all expected to conduct ourselves during this period. Instructively, no persons, groups or organizations raised any concerns that they are unable to comply with this simple directive.

Let me quickly re-echo the fact that the ban on drumming and noise making is not the preserve of the people of Accra. Other tribes including some sections of the Akan community observe same. There is even a school of thought that seeks to suggest that the ban is enforced better at other places than in the Ga-land.

So, with that understanding, the ban took full effect on Monday, 14th May 2018, presumably from 6: 00 am. All was well, until I stepped out of my office at Kanda, heading towards North Kaneshie on the ring road around 11: 20 am. I didn’t struggle to notice with deep regret and grave concern how a National Youth Organizer aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and his supporters were blatantly flouting the ban on drumming and noise making to submit their nomination forms amid loud noise, pomp and pageantry at the Total filling station near Paloma hotel. They had gathered at the fuel station in readiness to march to the party’s national headquarters at Asylum Down in Accra, which was about some 250 meters away. What for? To submit a nomination form!

I assumed that they may have forgotten that there is a ban in force, given the fact that noise making is actually the ‘surname’ of the city of Accra and also the ‘middle name’ of almost all outdoor public gatherings. I said to myself “cut them some slack, Johnnie. It’s early days yet. They will come along. The noise will surely end after the forms have been submitted”. But NO, I was wrong! The noise stretched through the day and continued even the day after. Of course, not with the same aspirant. Other aspirants also joined in with their brass band et al, possibly to out do their contenders in the race. This continued on Tuesday when the party actually closed nominations, with acting General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu confidently addressing the press.

For me, I consider this act as a clear violation of what the NPP has not previously said it doesn’t support. Yet, these happened at no mean a place, than the national headquarters of the party. And at the least opportunity, the NPP finds it prudent to remind us all that it is a law abiding political grouping and that her key principles include the rule of law. These are not in doubt, but on that score, at least, we expect those desirous of leading the party at the national level to demonstrate these tenets at all times. Note also, that these aspirants are people who hope to lead a governing party. Their voices will be heard at high places and their decisions will impact on all of us whether we support them or not. Yet, they chose to break a very simple regulation – DO NOT MAKE NOISE! Why couldn’t they stay away from the temptation? I have no idea.

Now, with this glaring ‘unlawful’ behaviour, it leaves me with very little trust for these aspirants. Then it also makes me question what levels of respect they have for the Ga Traditional Council, compared to how they have behaved in other quarters recently. Well, will the case be any different when they finally get the power they seek? Have they no culture and tradition where they come from? Do they respect the Gas among their ranks, so much so that they could have given just a little consideration to the ban? And what have the prominent Gas within the NPP, said about this flat disregard for their tradition and culture? Will the NPP ever condemn this, and in sure hope that it never happens again? Was this part of the agreement the traditional council reached with the political parties? When will the Ga Traditional Council speak up considering the fact that the ban has a long way to travel? Where was the task force and monitoring team comprising the GTC, AMA and Ghana Police at the time the noise was being made? Will this seeming silent treatment be extended to the churches, mosques, pubs, etc that may also falter in the coming days?

I have heard some persons explain this action as a consequence of the ill-attitude and behaviour of some Ga chiefs. They have vehemently argued that respect begets respect. I totally agree with that, but that in no way, is an excuse. Now, the fact that some Ga chiefs have either embarrassed themselves, their stools and subjects in the past by their actions and utterances, doesn’t in anyway mean that they represent the totality of the Ga state. The truth is, there are all manner of chiefs across Ghana, from different tribes and clans who have goofed at some point in time. Some of them have even been destooled for sundry reasons. Yet, that didn’t reduce the authority of the paramountcy or traditional council under which they served? If it ever did, that would be tantamount to shutting down the schools in an entire district or region because one class teacher failed to teach right, causing his or her students to fail. On the flip side, can the Ga Traditional Council work on its image and that of all its agents? Respect is reciprocal. How the people view the GTC will determine the level of respect they accord it.

Another school of thought has it that Accra is Ghana’s capital city and a cosmopolitan area for that matter. Therefore, with the wide mix of people and cultures drawn from all over the world, the ban should be relaxed since the numbers of non-Gas actually outweighs that of Gas. Well, how about what St. Ambrose once said ‘si fueris Rōmae, Rōmānō vīvitō mōre; si fueris alibī, vīvitō sīcut ibī” to wit, “if you should be in Rome, live in the Roman manner; if you should be elsewhere, live as they do there”.

I have also heard of Itinerant preachers at East Legon school junction and other places disrespecting the ban. This brings me to question the capacity of the task force Nii Dodoo Nsaki spoke about. Do they have what it takes to enforce the ban within the remits of the law? Or are they cherry picking on those and where to enforce the ban? Is it a case of ‘The weaker and more compliant you appear, the harder we come at you’? Or are the chiefs who are supposed to be working with the local assembly to enforce the ban not yet awake to the aroma of the coffee? Eyes are watching!

For now, life goes on and I am really enjoying the peaceful nature of Accra. May this season of bliss continue even after 14th June when the ban will cease to be effective.

Forever in our Hearts, Kailey! (Tribute in Loving Memory of our Mother, Winifred Kailey Allotey)

“Can a woman’s tender care

Cease towards the child she bare?

Yes, she may forgetful be,

Yet will I remember thee.”

(A & M Hymn 260, 3RD Stanza)

 

We stand here today with deep sorrows in our hearts to pay tribute to our departed mother. A flower may die, the sun may set, but a mother like you will never and can never be forgotten.

19th February, 2018 will never be forgotten. Even though death is inevitable, we never imagined it will come so soon. Your passing onto Glory still remains like a dream to us. We can’t believe it, it seems like a nightmare to us. But truly in the midst of life we are in death, but we seek succor from the Lord. Deep within our hearts we are heart-broken, but we take consolation from the fact that you need rest and you are safe in the hands of our maker.

We keep asking ourselves so many questions regarding your death, but each time we did, the conclusion we come to, was that, the Good God, has called you to a better place. A Holy place not made by hands to meet and sit with the angels.

You were so passionate about how Alfred’s engagement would go and had it all corrected that it would certainly go well. You were not there, but everything went as you planned. Maa, you did not go alone, a part of us all went with you the day God decided to take you home. Our fond memories are Limitless, your qualities as a good mother; endless. You exhibited love everywhere hence loved by people everywhere you went. Maanaa, you had a beautiful soul. We recall some of the powerful prayers you said every morning before you move out of the house.

We recall all those happy moments we spent together as a family. The way you stood up for us like a lioness protecting her cubs, the way you prayed tirelessly and took care of us when any of us were unwell, God should bless you wherever you are.

We can confidently say that your demise has taught us to be strong and has rather brought us closer to God, knowing very much he is the only one true God and the only one who will take care of us.

Maa, you have entered Mount Zion, the heavenly Jerusalem, and the City of the living God. You have entered his gates with singing and everlasting joy crowns your head. Gladness and joy have overtaken you; sorrow and sighing have fled away. Maanaa, you have entered into eternal rest. There, it’s seeing of the face of Jesus whom you’ve loved all your life.

We shall grieve all the days of our life because no one, absolutely no one can replace the exceptional love you’ve shown to us.

Maa, we believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him.

We know how you fought this fight. You have fought well and it’s time to rest.

Manaa, et) bo, yaaw) y3 hejorl3 mli.

Sleep Well, Maa, and Rest in Everlasting Peace till we meet again.

Matters arising are becoming things that take need only students with some kind leadership that hasn’t been seen before. Leadership that can only be found in DUC. We need leaders who are ready to fight for us. Leadership that has us at heart. We don’t want leadership that fears to find solutions to the lot of problems they found out before coming to power.

What’s Motivation and how do we get motivation?

Found this helpful hence the need to re-post it here.

Source: https://www.successconsciousness.com/motivation.htm

By Remez Sasson

How many times have you started enthusiastically a weight loss program, began a bodybuilding or aerobics training program, or started learning a foreign language, only to stop after a short while?

How many times have you intended to do something different, study a certain topic or start a certain project, but couldn’t, due to lack of motivation? At times, you might have started the new project, but only for a little while, and then stopped because you lost enthusiasm or did not have enough motivation? This happens quire often.

What is motivation, and why do you need it?

Motivation is a driving force. In order to accomplish anything, you need a driving force, otherwise nothing would happen. A wish is not strong enough to make you take action. A wish is a weak desire, and only a strong desire can drive you forward, to act and accomplish aims and goals.

In order to get motivated, you need to know exactly what it is that you want. Your goal should be clear and sharp, and you need understand and become aware of its benefits. Thinking often of your goal, and accepting the idea that it can come true, would increase your motivation and strengthen your desire to achieve it.

Thinking and persuading yourself of the importance of what you want to do or achieve, would increase your motivation, strengthen your desire, and make you willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goal.

It easier to display motivation in connection with short-term goals. When it comes to long-term goals, it is not always possible to sustain the motivation for a longer period of time. This is why it is wiser to start with small goals, and after gaining experience with being motivated, you proceed to bigger goals.

If you desire to get a certain object, or accomplish a certain goal, but you don’t feel motivated enough to act, it means that the desire or goal are not important enough. To be motivated to take action and do something in respect to your goal, you need to possess a strong desire.

Motivation has become a popular term nowadays. There are motivational coaches and speakers, and motivational books and articles. You can find a lot of information about it on the Internet.

Motivation has much to do with the emotions and the imagination, which means that if you want to increase it, you have to work on your feelings and imagination.

How to Get Motivated? Here are a few tips that could help you.

Tips to Increase Your Motivation:

1. Think and analyze your desire, to find out whether you really want to achieve it, and whether it is worth the effort and time.

2. Make your goal very clear. Writing it down will help.

3. Think often about your goal or desire.

4. Visualize your goal as already accomplished, and shut your mind to doubts and disbelief.

5. Read books or articles about the subject of your goal.

6. Read about people who have achieved success. This would inspire you to emulate them. you can find books, articles and videos that would be helpful.

7. Think often, about the benefits you will gain by achieving your goal. This will increase your desire and motivation.

8. Visualize how your life would be after getting what you want to do. Imagine how you would feel after achieving your goal.

9. Repeat positive affirmations, such as, “I have the desire and inner strength to achieve my goal”. Repeat this affirmation often, with attention and belief.

10. Start taking small steps toward your goal right now. Don’t wait for the right opportunity and time.

“Motivation is the powerful engine that moves you toward success and accomplishments in every area of your life.

“Motivation is the electrical power that activates the engine of success.”

“Visualizing your desire as already accomplished, and enjoying the feelings of accomplishment, awaken in you energies that drive you to do whatever it takes to make your desire come true.”

October 25, 2017 ABOUT 1,000 years ago, when Europe was supposedly traversing through its dark ages, the Muslim empire was the envy of the world.
