THE UNVEILING NATURE OF THE TRUE CHARLES AMARTEY TAGOE, THE SRC PRESIDENT

The previous footsteps of the current SRC President in his unflinching desire to uphold the students paramountcy and always fight for the best interest of the students' body of Coltek is something that the students body need to appraise him for that.

Last year by this time, you were always moving from class to class, from student to student to preach to them all the gospel of this institution and to the best of my knowledge, you were been pictured as one of the Messiahs who was coming to remedy students from and after the then stressful administration of your predecessor then Joseph Clifford Tuffuor.

The students body voted massively for you with the hope and conviction that you were coming to lead us to the promised Land, but as at now, we are indeed totally dumfounded and very flabbergasted as to whether we are indeed going to the promised Land as anticipated.

Mr President, you have now less than Three(3) months to vacate from your office, let me ask before I forget, coltek and the students body want to know, what can we boast of from your administration as at now?

The whole of the first semester of this academic year, we were waiting patiently as the popular saying goes, "patience pays" to see or hear positive dynamics from you but as it stands now, the sounds of your drums seems
not to be different from that of the past. It is time we begin to ask this, Mr President, what is really the problem?

Last semester, you could not even hold the second Local Assembly Meeting (LA) for members to at least have a privy to what is happening in your administration. Mr President, I want to ask again, was that another strategy?

At the just ended Local Assembly (LA) Meeting, we were expecting to drink the afore waited cool water from your pot but to our dismay, you d
swayed us again by rather presenting Court Cases, Procurement process and awarded contracts of which we are not even sure of it been ready at the said time captured in your message.

Mr President please permit me to at Least ejaculate prematurely for once, by asking again that what concrete or physical project do you have for Coltek and the students body as it stands now?

What are the Level 200 to level 400 students going to benefit from your administration?
Should we still have the trust that you are the Messiah of the today's Coltek?

If the challenges on the seat is too difficult for you to fight alone, we are still the patriotic students of Coltek and there is nothing wrong to admit to your shortfalls, we are ever ready to support you fight and win for the good name of Coltek to be elevated and that is the more reason why we voted massively for you to assumed that seat.

I think what we are seeing now should serve as a lesson to the students body and as a warning to the current Aspirants. We can even decided that this coming academic year we don't want anybody to occupy that seat again and see how the students body would function, because it is not a bad idea to have a plan "B" if the plan "A" is not yielding the outcome that you expected.

I shall be back.

Thank You.

50th Anniversary Celebration of Wa School for the Deaf, the Contribution of Pro-NDC Whatsapp Platform “Meet Ur MP’s/ fmr MP’s n MMDCE’s” Platform

50th Anniversary Celebration of Wa School for the Deaf, the Contribution of Pro-NDC Whatsapp Platform "Meet Ur MP's/ fmr MP's n MMDCE's" Platform

Wa school for the deaf was established in 1969. The school is located in the outskirt of the Wa town. It is directly opposite Wa Senior High School. Wa School for the deaf serves as the only school in the Upper West Region which admits students who are hearing impaired across the length and breadth of the country. The numerical strength of the school currently stands at 262 students.

As the school marks its 50th anniversary, plans are far advanced towards the celebration of this milestone. Among these plans is the launching of the anniversary.

Today, 23rd March, 2019 happens to be the day for the launching of the 50th Anniversary. This took place at the school premises. The dignitaries present were the Most Rev. Bishop Baawour, members of the regional house of chiefs, Pro-NDC Whatsapp platform, "Meet Ur MP's/ fmr MP's n MMDCE's", and staff of the school.

On this special day of the school for the deaf, a Pro-NDC platform christened "Meet Ur MP's/fmr MP's and MMDCE's", participated in this special day of this school. In fact, this was the only political party that honoured the invitation. No other political party honoured this all important programme. This is significant enough to showcasing how committed and honest the NDC is to undoing discrimination against the disables in this country.

As part of our social responsibilities and objectives as a purpose driven NDC Whatsapp platform, we made donation of several varied items valued Ghc4000 to the school. We further bought the anniversary cloth to support them in advertising the programme.

We did this to show the love and care we have for our younger brothers and sisters who are hearing impaired. This further reflects the all inclusiveness the NDC as a party stands for. The NDC party does not discriminate against the disables this is the reason why it is the first political party in the history of Ghana to have appointed a visually impaired person, Hon. Seidu Danaa as a minister. It can be inferred that the NDC believes strongly in the famous saying, "disability is not inability". It is on this score that we socialised and solidarised with our younger brothers and sisters in this school to inspire and give them hope.

Quite apart from that members of this Pro-NDC platform went ahead to play a football match with these students and that was the excited part of the programme.

During the programme, opportunity was given to representative of "Meet Ur MP's/ fmr MP's n MMDCE's" to say a word. Below is the speech presented by this noble and purpose driven Whatsapp platform.

A SPPECH DELIVERED AT THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION OF THE WA SCHOOL FOR THE DEAF ON THE 23RD MARCH, 2019

Madam Chairperson, Headmaster, Our Lord Bishop of Catholic Wa diocese, Most Rev. Richard Baawour, Representive of Regional Director of Education, Invited Guest, Staff and Students of the School for the Deaf, members of NDC present, Media, Ladies and Gentlemen. As members of a Pro-NDC WhatsApp platform by name "Meet Ur MPs /fmr MPs and MMDCEs", we are grateful for the honour done us to be part of this 50th anniversary celebration of the school for the deaf.

As social democrats, NDC holds people living with disabilities in high esteem and as a result we were the first political party in Ghana to appoint a person living with disability to the high office of a minister, in the person of Hon. Dr. Seidu Danaa.

In this direction, we are here today to socialize and to solidarise with our younger brothers and sisters and to add our voice to the fact that disability is not inability.

We will also wish to state that we will continue to collaborate and give support to the school in whatever way possible to help our brothers and sisters living with disabilities to realize their dreams. We are very hopeful that the next NDC government to be led by His Excellency John Dramani Mahama will give a facelift to the Wa School for the Deaf and we are assuring you that persons living with disability will continue to be part of the NDC family and future government.

As part of our support for the launching of your 50th anniversary celebration, we are donating assorted items valued at GHC 4000.00, which include:

Two (2) sewing machines

One (1) set of weaving machine

Three hundred (300) bowls with lids

Three hundred (300) cups with lids

Three hundred (300) exercise books

Two (2) footballs

Twenty-five (25) cartons of soft drinks and

Two (2) boxes of biscuits

In conclusion, Madam Chairperson, the door of the NDC is still opened and the school should not hesitate to knock on it for support when the need arises.

Thank you very much.

ON THE MATTER OF GHANA’S HISTORY, THE NATURE OF BUSIA-DANQUAH-DOMBO TRADITION APPROBATING AND REPROBATING

ON THE MATTER OF GHANA'S HISTORY, THE NATURE OF BUSIA-DANQUAH-DOMBO TRADITION APPROBATING AND REPROBATING

The passage of the executive instrument on the declaration of 7th January, 4th August and 1st of July, as Constitutional day holiday, Founders' day holiday and commemorative day respectively, and the walk out of the minority is needless and an attempt to rewrite this country's history on the altar of parochial interest and political expediency of the Busia-Danquah-Dombo political hegemony.

I personally do not think the change is any way worthwhile, because our history as a people has been consistent from colonialism to date. I will like to indulge you, readers, in two perspectives with regard to our very straight forward history in this country. That is, documentary sources and non-documentary sources in relation to this matter. From both Non- documentary (verbal accounts pass on from one generation to another) and Documentary (written accounts), our history from 1947-1960 is not skewed in this regard. Since both sources attribute individual contributions towards our independence largely, if not completely, to a single individual by name Nkrumah.

It is equally important to state that our history recognizes the contributions of the individuals of the UGCC. It is against this backdrop that every member of the group is named after a known landmark in this country.

Marking. 1st of July, a day Ghana gained total independence, a commemorative day while marking 7th January as constitutional day holiday, is even more bizarre. The same people that outlawed the celebrations of June 4th and 31st of December as public holidays on the 1st of June 2001, are the same people who without principle are talking about recognizing actors and events in our history. It is without equivocation that the events of June 4th and 31st December culminated to longest Republican constitution, the 4th republic.Therefore, if the argument has always been recognizing events and actors in our history, then there is no principle in outlawing June 4th and 31st December and celebrating a constitutional day holiday.

The needless demonization of Dr. Nkrumah and his legacies by the Busia-Danquah and recently, Dombo tradition, and the lack of principle in their accounts of the history must ceased. Indeed Nkrumah never Dies.

THE BEAUTY OF THE DAY

Another day has broken, the moon and her children have settled, the sun has risen, that man has to hustle under the scorching sun to find food for the family. The brightness of the day has taken over the whole place that our rich and valuable vegetation has been wiped out in the struggle for a beautiful day.

Electricity has taken over the whole town that one can now sit in his house and see everything in another man's town, there is no more anything like secret, our bestowed wisdom has spread across the whole world, innovation and creativity has now gotten to it's highest peak that day-in-day-out we weak up to see new things, new information, new people of all caliber, others been blessing to you and others too trying all their best to pool you down.
I call this "the beauty of the day" because it gives you the basis to value yourself in the cause of the day of which I want to enumerate and share with my readers some basic questions that every day I keep asking myself, of which I think it would be good for my dear reader to also reflect over after reading the article.
The questions are:

1. Was my today better than my yesterday?

2. If Yes , what makes it better? And if No what should I do to change the trend?
3. Invention, innovation and creativity is , am l also part of the race?

4. What am I suppose to do to get myself involved in the race if I am not? What can I also do on my own like others?

5.what will people use to remember me one day if I am no more?
Haven ask myself these and other questions for several times, I got to realize that, getting the answers to the above and many more questions of this nature are the secret behind every successful person. "A motivational speaker Dennis Waitley once said that, "the top people are those who are more concerned with activities that are goal achieving whereas average people are more concerned with activities that are tension relieving " taking inspiration from this, what level are you targeting? Do you want to be countered among the top people? Or you want to remained an average person as you are currently? Pounder over it.

It will interest you to know that neither success nor failure is an accident. You succeed when you do what other successful people do, over and over until these behavior become a habit. Likewise, you fail if you don't do what successful people do. In my research I once came across a phenomenon that l love so much, which States that " Nature is neutral, nature does not take sides, nature does not care" of which I keep pondering over it till I came across the law of cause and effect. Which States that,  whatever happened to you has it's cause and effect. Your yesterday plans is what brought you to where you are now, where then will your to plans lead you to? 
It is time I start something, it is time  you also start doing something. It is never easy to start because that is the foundation and you need to take your time to choose what you can do and build a formidable foundation on it, you have to put all your effort in doing whatever that you chose for yourself. Remember when you are not working deliberately and consciously you can not find yourself in the race. Start today tomorrow might be too late.
