Former Chief Executive Officer of the Premier Institute of Law Enforcement Management and Administration, Mr. Seth Amedofu, has asked the residents of Woe, which is home to Ghana’s oldest lighthouse, to set a good example for other communities.

The only way for this, he claimed, was for the people of Woe to put aside their differences and work together to advance the city’s growth and development.

The counsel was given by Mr. Amedofu, a former member of the Criminal Investigations Department of the Ghana Police Service and an Associate of the Federal Bureau of Investigations, at a public discussion conducted at the Woe Afedome to commemorate the 2023 Woe Easter Homecoming.

He claimed that the community possessed honourable sons and daughters who, when spoken together, could make Woe the envy of everyone.

“Light formerly flashed from our lighthouse (the Cape St. Paul Lighthouse) to towns and villages far and near. When we work together and grow Woe with all hands on deck, we may become that light once more.

The town, he claimed, possessed the rich human resources needed to guide its development, but because of their differences, locals were reluctant to return home and pay their fair share, but willing to do so elsewhere.

It would shine even brighter, he said, “with love for one another and unity of purpose founded on honesty.”

The forum was held to discuss issues such as the now-abandoned Woe L/A Junior High School (JHS), which was being converted into a vocational training facility, and to gather opinions and suggestions from the community in order to assist the town prosper.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency, Mr. Atsu Bludey said their elders had to move quickly to prevent further damage to the once-famous institution that practically all of Woe attended.
