Richard Oblitey Commey Unveiled As A Goodwill Ambassador Of The UNACWCA

Published

on

The United Nations Association Of Ghana Commission For Women And Children Affairs (UNACWCA), has reached an agreement with the Former IBF Lightweight champion Mr. Richard Oblitey Commey, to  have him serve as a Goodwill Ambassador of the Commission.

 

It comes after the Commission has monitored Mr. Commey’s good conduct and humanitarian services in diverse ways. This agreement has been made possible by Mr. Commey’s own passion to do something enduring for women and Children in Ghana. His management – Streetwise Management Limited, has also consented to this agreement.

 

This is a longterm relationship which will see Mr. Richard Commey work closely with the UNACWCA, Government, Civil Society and other Interest Groups to facilitate the attainment of UN SDG 5 – Gender Equality and Women Empowerment in Ghana.

 

As you may be aware, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) are set of 17 goals and 169 targets agreed by all UN member states with the aim to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it is important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.

 

Today’s signing of the MOU between UNACWCA, Mr. Richard Commey, and Streetwise Management Limited is a seal on this deal and details among many things specific responsibilities of the Goodwill Ambassador;

 

  • As a Goodwill Ambassador, the UNACWCA, hopes to leverage on Commey’s notability as a highly reputed public figure in Ghana to help focus national attention on the work of the Commission in-country. Particularly, in achieving SDG 5 – Gender Equality.
  • Richard Oblitey Commey shall be partly responsible for delivering humanitarian relief, help in the implementation of the UNACWCA programs, and providing development assistance to demonstrate benevolence and compassion for women and children.

 

  • Articulate the philosophy of the UNACWCA in the area of Gender Equality and Women Empowerment.

 

  • Motivate people to act in the interest of improving their own lives and those of their fellow citizens especially women and children.

 

  • Participate in certain pre-approved UNACWCA events at the UN headquarters and elsewhere as when it becomes necessary.

 

  • Engage in public advocacy and fundraising activities
  • Refrain from any conduct that would adversely reflect on the UNACWCA

 

It is the UNACWCA’s hope that by working with Mr. Richard Commey, and other stakeholders, it shall be able to deliver on its mandate areas such as:

 

  • End all forms of discrimination against all women and girls everywhere
  • Eliminate all forms of violence against all women and girls in the public and private spheres, including trafficking and sexual and other types of exploitation
  • Eliminate all harmful practices, such as child, early and forced marriage and female genital mutilation
  • Recognize and value unpaid care and domestic work through the provision of public services, infrastructure and social protection policies and the promotion of shared responsibility within the household and the family as nationally appropriate.

 

 

The UNA COMMISSION for Women and Children Affairs is an affiliate of the United Nations Association of Ghana (UNA), with the Commission overseeing and championing the affairs of women and children in Ghana.

It is also a proud member of the WORLD FERDERATION OF UNITED NATIONS ASSOCIATIONS (WFUNA), the operational people’s wing of the UNITED NATIONS (UN).

Published

on

The Blackmob rapper currently boasts of the hottest song in Accra, Ghana and that’s a fact – according to Apple Music’s City Chart for Accra at least. Listen/stream ‘Boys Aye Wild’ here: https://gambomusic.ffm.to/gambo-boys-aye-wild

 

It turns out the denizens of Accra could simply not get enough of Gambo’s ‘Boys Aye Wild’ today and rightfully so. The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.

 

Introduced in early 2021 by the Cupertino-based tech giant, City Charts is an updated playlist meant to bring local artists to the forefront of the conversation around music discovery, one it achieves by reflecting the musical tastes of listeners in over 100 cities from around the world on a daily basis.
