"Why are you not looking at the root cause of the issue, why are young Ewes guys and ladies not proud of their names. Is it not something that is worth discussing and finding out. Why is it that we, the Ewe people majority of us, are not proud of our Ewe names?I know pastors who always abbreviate their Ewe names," he stated.
