I am a Whistleblower with a known face and address.
I am so previledged to have the opportunity to write a birthday message to a great, amazing and highly phenomenal leader, Her Excellency Lady Mrs Mawuena Adjo Trebarh (née Dumor).
Can there be anything more beautiful and reassuring than to behold H.E Lady Mawuena cling to God not with a desperate fear or out of panic insecurity, but with a firm and confident trust?
H.E. Lady Mawuena’s attitude is not one of passivity but rather a calm and confident trust that speaks loudly that she will give attention to those special things which the Almighty God wants her to be concerned about and leave all others to Him.
With some strenuous digging, I am amazed to discover that H.E. Lady Mawuena has quietly, persistently and unceasingly been pushing for national, continental and international cooperation to solve global challenges; and her efforts are ever more relevant today, given the global crisis caused by the COVID- 19 pandemic.
How do we get the framework, the sense of structure we need to be able to move effectively from one day to another in Ghana where currently everything that seemed to be nailed down is falling apart?
What is the coordinating point that pulls together our confused thoughts and feelings as we look at the current comedy we call national development?
Is it not to be found in the adoration and worship of a hallowed partnership of our Men and Women?
As I wish her a happy birthday, may I respectfully request H.E Lady Mawuena to reflect on the ongoing struggle to return Ghana into a safe partnership of competent hands.
Accordingly, may I respectfully request Her Excellency Lady Mrs Mawuena Adjo Trebarh to share with the BOSS deep reflections in Kwesi Brew’s poem, LEST WE SHOULD BE THE LAST:
Lest we should be the last
To appear before you
We left our corn in the barn
And unprepared we followed
The winding way to your hurt
Our children begged for water
From the women bearing golden gourds
On their heads,
And laughing on their way from the well;
But we did not stop,
Knowing that in your presence
Our hunger would be barnished
And our thirst assuaged
By the flowing milk of your words
Now we have come to you
And are amazed to find
Those you have loved and respected mock you in the face.
Happy birthday, my highly respected H.E. Lady Mrs Mawuena Adjo Trebarh (née Dumor); celebrating you as a WOMAN who runs the race despite all the hurdles.
