The organic and supra organic nature of a people with one identity is what has kept this land till today and all Ghanaians will look back decades to come feeling proud or wroth based on our actions and in actions today.
I choose to say that we indeed shall look back and say that we are blessed to have contributed our quota to the development and peace of this nation.
Per adventure we have forgotten why we must; let’s be awakened by the rhythm from a legend of this country; Dr. Ephraim Amu’s song- ‘Yεn ara asaase ni’ meaning ‘This is our land’ which has been sang since the time of our forefathers.
Yεn ara asaase ni;
εyε aboɔdenden de ma yεn;
Mogya na nananom hwie gui
nya de too hɔ maa yεn;
Adu me ne won nso so;
sε yεbεyε bi atoa so.
Nimdeε ntraso, nkotokranne,
ne apε-sε-menko minya,
Adi yεn bra mu dεm,
Ma yεn asaase ho dɔ atom sεε
Chorus: ɔman no, sε εbεyε yie o,
ɔman no sε εrenyε yie o;
εyε nsε-nnahɔ sε;
ɔmanfo bra na εkyerε
This is our land;
It is of great value to us;
Because it was acquired for us by the blood shed by our fore fathers;
It is our turn to contribute to the perpetuation to this nation;
Misplaced wisdom, backbiting and selfishness has left a scar that has cost us our mutual love;
Chorus: If this land will progress or retrogress is a legacy that the lives we live will bring to bear.
We are all called upon to continue hoisting the flag of peace for our dear country Ghana. Long live Ghanaians and long live mother Ghana!!!
