On the 23rd of March, Friday night, it is alleged that armed robbers stormed the lecture blocks with guns and robbed the students off their valuable gadgets.

The reports alleged that the armed robbers made away with a number of smart phones and laptops belonging to the students. As at the time of filing this story, there were no reports of casualties because the terrified students complied with the instructions of the gun-wielding robbers and submitted their valuables although a number of the students sustained minor injuries as they successfully fled from the chaotic scene.

Almost 48 hours after the alleged armed robbery the school authorities are yet to issue a statement to address the developing situation. Students of the University have continually expressed worry over the security mechanism of the school as students are gradually becoming victims of robbery.

Attempts to locate some of the victims have proved futile although a number of students who claim to have witnessed the robbery from the adjoining lecture theatres confirm that the robbers stormed the class units with guns. Students are however advised to take precautions in their movements on campus, especially during the nights.

 

Relationships on campus are about finding the right person who makes your time on campus worthwhile. It is not all rosy but it shouldn’t take a toll on you either.  As much as possible, try to avoid these types of women:

The Control Freaks

It is one thing if she is talking you into going to the library, doing your dishes and other stuff around. However, when she is trying to control everything around you, you should try as much as possible to avoid her. University days are supposed to be the moment you become independent, enjoy some freedom and reflect on life and the future. If that aspect is also going to be fully controlled by a woman, then there is no point in it.

The Designer Freak

The kind of girl who looks for the designer on everything she sees is a potential recipe for disaster in your bank account. On the average, university guys do not have that much to spend on designer clothes, bags and shoes for girls. However, if you believe that you have enough to spend, you may go ahead.

 Overly In-secured One

Insecurity is in two folds here; one who relies on compliments to maintain a self esteem and another who thinks everything is about her. As friends, you may realise that she is all about compliments and goes the extra mile to get it from others. Her lady figure is her only source of security and way through tough times. If that be the case, she is not the type to date on campus. Campus is where everything happens and chances are that she is going to go the extra mile to get what she really wants (compliments) from another person.

The Blind to the Good 

Some women turn blind eyes to the good in people. They only talk when when it is about criticizing their man. For a growing person on campus, that is not what you need. You need a balance of compliments when you do the right thing and criticisms when you are wrong. You’ll never feel appreciated under the constant cloud of criticism.

The Selfish Type

She has ambitions, which is a good thing. However, when she starts pulling you along with total disregard for your ambitions and plans, there is no future for you two. It is not going to be the last time she is going to disregard your interest. As such, for your own good, don’t go for her.

Heritage is a tradition, inheritance, property a practice or set of values that is passed down from preceding generation through families or inherited through institutional memory.

When it comes to heritage, I believe Ghanaians should be more proud because there is a lot we can boast of.

Heritage of Ghana right away from the time of migration to date has been our culture, artefact, craft and after the independence of Ghana; National Symbols.

Culture is the intellectual, practice, moral and dynamisms of a group of people in a given society over a period of time at a given place. Ghana being a given place from our ancestors with ten administrative regions and five major ethnic groups, we are still proud to say we have rich Ghanaian Festivals, Food, Chieftaincy, Puberty, Language, Dances, Pouring of Libation, Drums, Funeral Ceremonies, Birth rites, Naming ceremonies, and Marriage rites as our unique Culture and Customs.

Inherited national symbols are our National Anthem, Pledge, Flag, Coat of Arms among others that aids to identify us a one people with a common destiny from a blessed land like Ghana. The Ghanaian national symbols tell about the country’s history besides its rich tradition and culture. 

Remembering the independence of Ghana 6th March every year since 1957, has made it possible for the management of Gruope Nduom to declare the whole of March as on Heritage Month.

How well does the current generation of Ghana exhibit their patriotism, love, loyalty and dogma for Ghana our motherland?  Is it through daylight robbery, the corruption canker, growth of false pastors, public display of fetish activities, emergence of homosexuality, indecent exposure, manslaughter, murder, nudity, improper dressing, and abuse of social media to mention but few?

If we really understood the 5th to 8th line of the 2ND Stanza of our National Anthem, we won’t be engulfed in such anti-country acts.   

‘‘With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,
Whether night or day, in the midst of storm,
In every need whate'er the call may be,
To serve thee, Ghana, now and evermore.’’

 

We have a generation that has no respect for the elderly and authority, some uniform men and women have no integrity so they openly take bribe, reciting the National Pledge and singing of the National Anthem is seen as platitude, speaking of native language is perceived barbaric, circulation of falsehood about high profile personalities is the norm of the day, vulgarity is the new order, stealing from national pulse is a normal routine.

Are these the heritage we inherited from our ancestors who led us to this promise land or the forbearers who toiled to birth way for independence? Your answer is certainly NO.

Our month of heritage which is March should aid us to reflect on our actions, inactions and persona to take the right decisions as citizenry. Let’s embrace our rich culture, traditions and practices so it affects our doings positively.

Our dressing this month if nothing at all , should depict Ghanaian or African and try to prepare more Ghanaian dishes.  

Let’s raise high the flag of Ghana and one with Africa advance.

 

Long Live Our Rich Heritage

God bless our homeland Ghana.
