  Ghanaian Day, 11th January 2008.  A Graceful Occasion for Motec.

The Ghanaian Day by Motec has been celebrated at St Paul’s Church Hall at Brentford. The social event was graced by the presence of Daasebere Professor (Emeritus) Oti Boateng, the Paramount Chief of the New Juaben Traditional State of Ghana, Mr Martin Quansah - the Minister for Consular Affairs representing the Ghana High Commissioner, London and many other dignitaries. It was a truly social evening for friends, supporters of Motec and their families.

The function kicked off late but the catch up was proficiently useful and enjoyable. Dr Edward Hiller, a Motec Member started with a solo marimba keyboard display, very effective for relaxation of the participants. Daasebere spoke about his admiration of the efforts by Motec to support Health Care improvements in Ghana and pledged his unqualified support for well meaning initiatives by voluntary health workers from the Diaspora, Motec in particular. He also emphasized the importance of maintaining good health through activities like exercise. He reminded participants of a consensus motto reached by a meeting of a National Medical Directors of Ghana at Koforidua at which he served as a chairman - KEEP MOVING to KEEP LIVING.

The President of Motec, Mr Ofori-Atta announced that Daasebere had agreed to be one of the patrons of Motec and now the Ghanaian counterpart of Professor Lord David Alton of the House of Lords (UK based patron). The news was welcomed with applause. Mr Ofori-Atta’s brief speech concentrated on Daasebere’s inspirational role in support of Motec both home and abroad. Earlier on, Dr Kofi Amu-Darko, Motec’s International Public Relations Officer, introduced Dassebere with information about the great man’s national and academic laurels, international experience and nomination by The American Biographical Institute as one of two Ghanaians (Mr Kofi Annan the other) in the list of Greatest Minds.

The enjoyable moments included sumptuous Ghanaian meals cooked by Ghanaian volunteer Motec Ladies led by Mrs Veronica Mc-Quarshie. There were such a variety of tasty meals that kept participants enjoying themselves. ‘There is a taste of Ghana everywhere’, one participant remarked.

Other highlights of the day included music and dance and the sale of African sculpture, Motec T shirts and 2008 calendar. High Life Music did indeed keep people ‘Moving to Live’ for both young and old.

The programme finished promptly at 5p.m with Motec Vice President Mr Simon Derbie presenting a token gift to Daasebere, response by Dassebere and Vote of Thanks by Mrs Felicity Adu-Mills. The Master of Ceremony, Mr. Raymond Ofori guided the entire programme. Free music was by Dr Ed Hiller of West Herts NHS Trust Hospitals and The Oppong Brothers of Hemel Hempstead.

Motec wishes to express her sincere gratitude to all especially the Organising team led by Veronica, all the Distinguished Guests especially Daasebere and Mr Quansah, the providers of free drinks (Dr Tony Boret and others) and food Music, Motec supporters and members, the priest and social committee of St Paul’s Church whose contribution and co-operation made the day a truly memorable one. The motive of the event of providing a social occasion to commemorate Motec’s one year of establishment and for the Ghanaian membership to express their gratitude to the non-Ghanaian members and supporters was achieved.
