Bongo DCE Eulogizes Upper East Media for exhibiting professionalism
Media practitioners in Upper East Region have been commended for exhibiting professionalism in their line of duty.
According to District Chief Executive of Bongo, Peter Ayinbisa, the media in the region have showcased to the world a good image of his district.
Mr. Ayinbisa who pledged his unflinching support to the media in propagating the message of the district to the people spoke exclusively with A1radioonline.com.
“The media and the assemblies are supposed to coexist, they are supposed to be development partners so the media in the Upper East Region in my candid opinion is doing very well, very very well.”
Mr. Ayinbisa urged MDCEs in the region to engage the media in their activities stating that “you can be building mansions in the district, you can be providing the best services in the district but once it is not aired nobody will hear of what you are doing”
Mr. Ayinbisa’s remarks are on the basis of the reluctance of some Municipal and District Chief Executives as well as heads of departments in the region to respond to the media when the need arises. Many departmental heads in the region continue to ride on government’s reluctance to pass the right to information bill to law by denying journalists information.
But Mr. Ayinbisa since his approval as DCE of Bongo has been proactive and on top of issues as far as the district is concern. His zeal to succeed led to a successful first town hall meeting to have organized in the Upper East region since the inception of the current government. Following the success of the program, the Trade Union Congress (TUC) plans to organize this year’s May Day in the Bongo district.
“TUC came to me to deliver a very good message to me. Their message is that because of my good works, because of the type of thing I do and they read and hear on the media, they have decided to select the Bongo district to host the 2018 May Day.”
