Listeners of A1 Radio, today woke up to a different voice on the station’s flagship programme; the Day Break Upper East Show.
This is because the Executive Director of Northern Patriots for Research and Advocacy (NORPRA), Bismark Adongo Ayorogo, today, May 2, 2022, hosted the holiday edition of A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.
He sat in for regular host, Mark Kwasi Ahumah Smith. The show, hosted by Mr Adongo Ayoro focused on the impact of the Electronic Transfer Levy (E-levy) on the lives of socio-economic lives of residents as well as the associated costs to businesses.
It would be recalled that after Parliament passed the E-levy, the government indicated that the deductions of the affected transitions would begin on May 1, 2022.
Mr Adongo Ayorogo’s programme also focused on Ghana’s lack of development despite its vast natural resources.
He was joined by the CEO of Norgence, Albert Naa, a member of the Social Justice Movement who was also a member of the PNDC government, Yen Nyenya. The third member of the panel was Social Commentator Stanley Abopam.
Management of A1 Radio, a subsidiary of the Agreed Best Communications Company, indicated that the move forms part of the media outfit’s strategy to entertain and educate listeners while providing a platform for known personalities in the Upper East Region to try their hands on Broadcast Journalism.
Meanwhile, after the programme, Mr Adongo Ayorogo expressed gratitude to the staff and management of A1 Radio for the opportunity noting that “your job [as broadcasters] is not easy.”
Bismark Adongo Ayorogo is a Public Policy Analyst in the Upper East Region. In a recent interview on the same platform, he called out the people of the Upper East Region for not being angry enough for development.
