Story; Atigsi Badek
Once again, the Navrongo Town Awards dubbed N-Town Awards held an impressive event on the 30th of December 2019; with a barrage of awards going to honor many sons and daughters of the land for contributing immensely to the development of Kasena Nankana Area.
At the event, Gospel singer & Senior Lecturer at the University of Ghana Wegeiwor received an award for her contribution to rural development through the Exglo Foundation.
Wegeiwor has resolved to impact rural development positively, especially in the area od women and children. She believes her current stature, juxtaposed with the humbling upbringing she had growing up in in the Upper East & Northern Region, makes it incumbent on her part to ensure people live a dignified life.
She has therefore embarked on numerous projects which actually transcends the Kasena Nankana area.
This is a classic instance where I can confidently say There goes the adage; “a prophet is not regarded in his/her home”
Wegeiwor is a Gospel musician and a senior lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School. Known in private life as Patience Aseweh Abor, she’s a staunch Christian and a mother of three. To be able to juggle all these roles seamlessly makes her another awesome example for society; worthy of emulation.
I have often said that the savanna regions hold a unique opportunity to change the narrative when it comes to development in several ways. From presenting a unique kind of music to upholding social constructs that bother on sincerity, truth, and a deliberate attempt to ensure the positives of society remain visible; the savanna continues to stand tall. Kudos N-Town Awards for recognizing your own.
The Award was presented on behalf of the Chiefs and People of the Kasena Nankana.
