William Nlanjebor Jalulah, General Manager of A1 Radio, a subsidiary of the Agreed Best Company has delivered a lecture to students of the Bolgatanga Senior High School in the Upper East Region.

The lecture forms part of strategies to help students who take government as an elective subject, to get practical insight into the role of the media in furthering the course of democratic governance in Ghana.


As part of his lecture, Mr Jalulah took the students through the scope of the media along with its relevance to society.

The General Manager of A1 Radio noted that the media is an important tool for information dissemination, and policy-shaping while also serving as a voice of accountability.

He told students about the plethora of challenges that journalists, during the course of their work, are faced with citing some verbal and physical assault of some journalists in the region particularly by political party sympathizers.

Despite the challenges, Mr Jalulah assured the students that, one can still thrive and excel in the media space by accurately reporting stories and verifying information.

On his part, the government teacher at BigBoss, Rev. Emmanuel Dok explained that to get practical knowledge on the topic “Media” from practising journalists. This, he said helps the students gain a better understanding of the topic.

“As the syllabus requires after the topic subject is thought in the class, there is the need to get a resource person to come and have the practical discussion of the lesson with the students. We don’t practice journalism and so we give out the theory aspect but the curriculum designers thought it wise that there are people who are actually practising Journalism that need to be called to have an interaction with the students,” he added.
