OUR DUTY- A WORTHY LEGACY FOR THE NATION

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 landwhich has been sang since the time of our forefathers.

TWI VERSION

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

TRANSLATION

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!!!

  1. IF THIS IS TRULY OUR LAND. THEN WE WILL TREAT IT BETTER LIKE OUR TRUE DWELLING SPACES…

  2. I really do agree with you dear on such thoughts . Ghana is blessed. Greetings from KINGSLEY OLELE

  3. Each time that I listen to the masterpiece “Yen Ara Asaase Ni, I just pause and wonder how we lost our way and got it so wrong as a nation.

    We have every reason too do well as a nation and I believe the time has come for all well-meaning Ghanaians to unite and show the world we are a capable people.
    Its a shame that a Country so rich in both human and natural resources is unable to provide basic necessities for the people in its capital city let alone provide for small towns and villages.
    Its time for change, a meaningful change, a revolutionary change; its about time, we don’t have to wait until people are on the streets before we see the urgency of the situation.
    We must think and act now before its too late.
