Mr. Elikem Kotoko, a member of the National Communication Team of the opposition NDC has taken to his social media page to celebrate Mr. Stan Dogbe on his 45th birthday.
In the hear warming massage Elikem said:
“Made in Heaven, delivered by Mrs Dogbe to Mr Dogbe in Daballa, Volta Region, functioning le Accra – Ghana
To even think that it took me over 12 hours to figure out what exactly to write is telling enough how cumbersome it was for me to finally put my thoughts together, not because you are a mystery, neither are you a myth but a bit and piece of all.”
Recounting moments with the veteran journalist, Mr. Kotoko said “From afar, its difficult for one to tell exactly how affable you are and sincerely, I am glad I got closest, kind courtesy the last election.”

From afar, its difficult for one to tell exactly how affable you are and sincerely, i am glad i got closest, kind courtesy the last election.
Our first ‘intercourse’ was up there in the office when i walked in and just after shutting the door behind me… “Hey Elikem, welcome, please have a seat” and before i could even greet, “Challey, how be?” The “Challey how be” broke every ice and made room for the healthieset, frank and cordial conversation.
Within a space of one month we met (physically & virtually) and spoke countless times which resulted in some very strong mutual brotherly respect. I discovered your other nickname was Chairman, not because you were or are bossy but rather because you get things done and want them done timely, perfectly and without blemish; a standard I believe undoubtedly culminated (nigger word for contributed, lol) into having a certain strong air of EXCELLENCE around our numero uno Statesman, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama.
“Mebe dey”, there is currently no known perfect organizer and strategic master planner that I, Elikem knows of apart from you; subject to the views of othes based on their measuring variables but i know many will agree with me.
Then came that day when you asked if I would love to join you on that trip to Sogakofe, ooooohhhh Yehoowa! In fact, the treatment given me wasnt the icing on the cake but my first had experience of what you and your team go through each day, before, during and after any event. On this note, i want to just say i doff my hat for you and those amazing guys youve got, very disciplined, loyal, dedicated, effectively efficient, professional and jovial at the same time. To even think that there were ladies among them, kpordawoe, you assembled the best team and it comes to me as no surprise, the quality of delivery that always emanates from your ‘productions’.
On the first night, you welcomed us all and me in particular with the traditiona approach to “enu mu amey ade”, I managed to conquer it by not sipping much and oooh lest i forget, you alwys get involved in everything yourself, and i have always wondered how you do it because it gives the impression you hardly sleep but…”yikoema, ewoe wo mawo ta!”
In less than four (4) hours of our arrival, you had everyone including yourself involved in setting up the stage, arranging the chairs, installing equipment, and the carpenters werent left out too; such an efficient system and i couldnt hide my admiration for their dedication to duty. Until you confirm everything is done the way you want it, nobody is resting. It cant go without mention of your eagle eye everywhere and how sometimes you subtly and professionally express your displeasure over some actions of ours, akpe nawo loo
As for how Gilbert tried knowning down your gate the next day, we still havent had the full report on the cause yet, but i believe….enyo
Chairman, I dont want to be talkative, all I want to say is today is that special day and i want to specially say, drawing closer to you, i noticed what a perfectionist you are when it comes to your assigned role. The people of Dabala have a son who is paying his dues “koo”. “Edze deka, korkor, bia, nuto has bia…enya dzor”
Yes, as humans we are not perfect, and do you know what most people say and think, “He doesnt smile, i have never seen him smile, he looks too serious always”. Chairman seree kakraaa! I didnt say be walking and be laughing oo, lol. The people want to see that hidden/rarely seen smiles you were on the inside which you seldom roll out when all is done to your satisfaction.
On that note, please just let me know where the party is so i can deliver this lengthy “praise n’ worship” appellation.

In my alma mater, SPACO, we will scream at you “TSITSIIIIIIII” just to mean you are grown or growing
Le yevugbe me kor, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, Stan Xoese Dogbe
