WESTERN TOGOLAND AND WORLD RADIO DAY
Messages sent across social media indicates the desire of we, the Peoples of Western Togoland to be part of activities of the UNESCO.
Today, Saturday, February 13 is World Radio Day, which celebrates the radio as a way of educating people, providing information, and promoting freedom of expression across cultures.
Each year the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) celebrates World Radio Day by planning activities with broadcasters, organizations and communities around the world.
We invite all reasoning hearts to question why the press always come out with negative reportage on Western Togoland when Western Togolanders themselves are prevented from making use of the radio stations.
Information given out by pressmen are not really what they cover from Western Togoland. The pressmen collect per diem from the Western Togoland programs but turn round to massage the news to misinform the general public and give the organizers a bad name.
An example is that when we talk about reviewing the Union of Western and Ghana we mean something that is good for Ghana and the whole of Western Togoland, but the pressmen rather publish that we are calling for secession of PART OF THE VOLTA REGION from Ghana.
This is a vicious design to divide the front of the suffering masses and at the same time incite power holders to misapply their power to intimidate the genuine advocates of sanity; although they are not even rebellious.
It is still the same wrong reportage that has led to a lot of people think that it is only a few people from the Volta Region who are complaining whereas, the whole system is rotten from tip of nose to tip of tale.
If the Union has no guiding principles Ghanaians will continue abusing the people’s rights as witnessed in recent registration of voters and the voting process itself.
The wicked design of the politicized press is rather denying Ghana the real benefits of the supposed UNION. This only allows corrupt officials to keep exploiting forever while the citizens of both countries remain suffering.
We want Ghanaian authority to be prompted by the theme for this year’s World Radio Day celebration – “New World, New Radio” to respect press freedom in honour of the invention of radio. And the pressmen too must respect it by putting a stop to distortions in their reportage.
We should also call on Western Togoland Investors and scientists to follow the three sub themes of this year’s World Radio Day celebrations, “Evolution, Innovation and Connection” and promote modern technologies in Western Togoland.
A reminder must go again to all citizens that nose masking, like that of the Spanish flu which occurred in 1918 – 1920, is nothing new in hìstory and therefore they must diligently observe the COVID-19 protocals to keep themselves and others we need## because masses are seriously needed to build Western Togoland into a noble state.
