Daakye Kanea — a Ghanaian podcast throws spotlight on one of the noble Women Leaders in our country who are influencing not just the minds of students in the classroom but caring for the needs of the under-privileged and vulnerable.
Dr. Patience Aseweh Abor is a very big name in academia with enviable feats that score from Ghana and beyond. But beyond the classroom, this amazing modern woman with very strong African values picks a moniker “Wegeiwor” — Yes, I know this moniker rings a bell and can be traced ‘more easily’ because that’s how Dr. Patience Aseweh Abor is popularly known by in the Showbiz circles. She is a Senior Lecturer at the University of Ghana, Legon.
Wegeiwor sheds light on varied topics on the interview – from Leadership to Tourism, Politics, Family, among others.
Wegeiwor says being a great leader requires humility. But above all, integrity, she says, comes first before anything. “The courage and integrity to influence people towards a desired goal is also key in leadership. For somebody to be a great leader, the person needs to come with a high sense of integrity to change the status quo.”
Wegeiwor, a woman who has exploited many fields of endeavour She picked Winnie Madikizela-Mandela as a role model , and someone she still learns a lot from and would want to pick some intrinsic values from. “She has a lot of qualities I would like to imbibe into myself”, Wegeiwor added.

Wegeiwor is the Founder of Exglo Foundation, Non-Governmental Organization in Ghana (check www.exglo.org). Aside working in the classroom, she makes time to hone her music craft. And for Wegeiwor, doing music is more of a ministration thing than something to be done purposely because of money or hype. Her latest single “Kuzoku Duba” has an official video shot for it in various parts of Northern Ghana, another way to sell tourism from her home region.
