Members of the Ewe community in the Upper East Region, in a vibrant display of cultural resurgence on Sunday, December 10th, 2023, gathered to celebrate the Bobobor festival with calls for unity among members.

The “Bobobor” festival is deeply rooted in Ewe tradition and serves as a platform for members to showcase their rich cultural heritage through music, dance, and traditional rituals.

The primary focus of the celebration, according to the committee, was to rejuvenate the community’s membership in the region, marking a significant step towards fostering unity and solidarity among the Ewe diaspora.

“Unity is the very fabric that binds us together as a society. Acknowledging that, despite our diverse backgrounds and perspectives, we are interconnected members of the same regional community. When we embrace unity, we create an environment where cooperation flourishes, and the collective strength of a united people becomes a formidable force for positive change,” indicated Mr. Kossi Kuma Gbodji, the chairman of the Ewe Habobor in the region.

Addressing the gathering, Mr. Gbodji emphasized the importance of taking bold steps to reconnect with all members hailing from the Volta and Oti regions who now reside in the Upper East.

“Unity is not a passive state; it demands active participation from each of us. It calls upon us to set aside differences, listen with empathy, and find common ground. It challenges us to rise above divisive rhetoric, embracing values that unite us – compassion, respect, and a shared commitment to the well-being of our fellow human beings. I implore each of us to work together in building bridges, seeking understanding, and forging a future where the bonds that unite us are stronger than the forces that seek to tear us apart.”

Chairman Gbodji stressed the importance of creating a conducive environment for open dialogue, fostering a sense of belonging, and encouraging collaborative efforts to tackle common issues.

“Regrettably, this spirit of unity diminished over time, giving way to small groups pursuing individual interests. The current Ewe Habobor in the municipality, comprised of Ewe speakers and their spouses residing in the region, emerged to rekindle that spirit. We strive to live in harmony, support one another in times of joy and sorrow, and uphold our shared expectations.”

“There are instances when the Habobor or a group of people becomes the last resort, called upon in times of dire need. However, this has exposed us to public criticism and ridicule. The current members of Ewe Habobor believe we can do better. We are taking a bold step to reach out to all sons and daughters, along with their spouses, from the Volta and Oti regions residing in the region. Let us, in the spirit of brotherhood, brainstorm, agree, and come together again to regain our lost and sinking image.”
