My Story

                               TRIBUTE TO EFO PHILIP FUGAR- A FALLEN COMRADE
                                            IN THE VINEYARD OF CEANA

                                                 FROM CEANA SECRETARIAT

We are grieving; we are distressed and soaked in our tears, for our loss is great and immense. To temper the intensity of our aching hearts, we employ these simple words of Epictetus: “Never say of anything that I have lost it, only that I have given it back.” For, indeed, as we speak, our beloved Efo Philip Fugar is back in the arms of our Lord.

Efo Philip Fugar was a proud Ewe and his love for his Ewe community knew no bounds.   He always found time to pursue issues that would enhance the lives of community members. It is therefore not surprising that he was very instrumental in forming the following Ewe groups: Ewe Multicultural Association of Ontario (EMAO), ANKODECA, THE SOUTHERN EWE ASSOCIATION and ANLO SUSUTIALAWO to find solution to the myriad problems facing Ewerland.

When CEANA wanted to set up a web site, Efo Philip offered his time and other resources to ensure that it was firmly established. If CEANA is boasting of a website today, a site which has become the source of information for EWES in the Diaspora, we owe this to the singular efforts of Efo Philip Fugar. He showed great concern for the lack of development in Eweland and sought assistance from developmental organizations to improve upon this situation.   Efo Philip was always at the forefront exploring ways to enhance the lives of our brothers and sisters back home.  During the heat of the Awomefia crisis, he co-chaired a group of concern citizens in the Diaspora which deliberated the situation and sent a delegation to Ghana to mediate with the stake holders.  Until recently, he had urged the CEANA Secretariat to provide a forum to a group of individuals to present a proposal on Anlo Developmental initiatives at CEANA's convention in Atlanta .   But count for what! He did it not for praise or reward. For him it was his duty.

In life’s struggle, we want the courage to strive and dare; and if we should win, let it be by the code, with our faith and our honor held high. These were the attributes more than anything else that he brought to bear on his services to the EWE community. And that is what he has left us with.

Death is a necessary end for all mortals and it is the turn of Efo Philip Fugar to depart to eternity. CEANA cannot sing enough.  We conclude with theses words “I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race and I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord the righteous judge shall give me at that day and not to me only but also to all who have loved his appearing.”  2Timothy 4: 7-8  Efo Philip Fugar rest in the bosom of Our Lord.  Dor Gbe, Dor Gbe,  Norvi hede nyui
