NDC Women Donate To Nungua Queen Mothers For Homowo

As part of efforts to strengthen the relationship between the Greater Accra Regional Women’s Wing of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the traditional Queen Mothers as well as Fetish Priestess of Nungua Traditional Area, the Regional Women’s Wing led by the Organizer, Mrs Felicia Mekpoi Bortey, have donated items to the Nungua Queen Mothers towards this year Homowo festival.

The items include 100 packs of mineral water, 10 crates of soft drinks and a box of Schnapps.

Mrs Bortey said the aim was to support the Queen Mothers and the Fetish Priestesses to celebrate the Homowo Festival as the government ban on fishing denied them a bountiful celebration.

She noted that NDC is a social democratic party and paid high respects to tradition and assured of the party’s continue to support to promote the celebration of the  Homowo festival.

While assuring of her commitment to the traditional festival, Madam Bortey also asked the Queen Mothers and the Fetish Priestess to pray for the NDC party and its flag-bearer, John Dramani Mahama towards 2020 general elections.

She said NDC and it’s Flag-bearer need to return power to relief Ghanaians from the economic hardship, stressing, the ban on fishing at the time the Fisher folks expected bumper harvest is not part of NDC policy.

The Regional Women’s Organizer also called on the Queen Mothers to use the festive occasion to advise the youth to stay away from social vices that have the tendency of curtailing their education.

Evicting Judges for Cathedral undermines Judicial Independent’s-Agalga Hon James Agalga, Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa North has condemned the decision of the government to evict some Judges from the residence at the Ridge residential enclave to pave way for construction of a national cathedral. According to him, though as a Christian he is not against building of a national Chapel, he believed the decision to evict some Judges to pave way for the Cathedral was not only a misplaced priority, but a threat to the independency of the Judiciary as it could mean that, the Executive arm of government could manipulate the judiciary including their sleeping places. Speaking some Journalists in an interview in Accra over the week, Mr Agalga who is a Former Deputy Minister for the Interior lauded the initiative to construct a National Cathedral project but disagreed with the approach of government to realising the good project. In his considered opinion, the government should find a more spacious land space to site the cathedral rather than settling on the Ridge space which is currently the home of some superior court judges and other state institutions. He added that, the matter remained sensitive because, the condition of services of Judges are been undermine and posed serious threat to their independency, stressing that, Ghana is not a Theocratic state but a secular country where there is freedom of worship and association. Mr Agalga questioned whether the government would be able or willing to do same for other Faiths like the Muslims and the traditional believers. He stated that, the controversy could have been avoided if government had given other prime areas in the country for the National Cathedral rather than it current location. The National Cathedral of Ghana is a planned interdenominational Christian cathedral scheduled to be built in Accra, the nation’s capital, as part of Ghana’s 60th-anniversary celebrations. The design of the Cathedral was unveiled by the President Nana Akufo-Addo in March 2018. The Cathedral would have an auditorium capable of seating 5,000 as well as the requisite chapels and a baptistery. The site will also house a music school, an art gallery and a museum dedicated to the Bible. The design of the Cathedral reflects the art and culture of Ghanaian ethnic groups; the high ceilings and a staggered roof is reminiscent of Akanian architecture and the facade would be concaved, decorated with timber in imitation of Ashanti royal stools. The architect for the project is David Adjaye, a British-Ghanaian.
