News Editor at A1 Radio, a subsidiary of Agreed Best Communication Company, Joshua Asaah, received awards at the recently ended Upper East Regional GJA Awards. 

Mr. Asaah was adjudged Best Conflict Reporter of the Year and Conflict Reporter of the Year. 

When Mr. Asaah spoke to the media after the event, he said the award conferred on him would only drive his resolve to seek peace in the Upper East Region. 

“The conflict reporter of the year honour conferred means I will strive hard to contribute my quota to ensure peace returns to many areas like Bawku that have not known peace for decades.”

He also dedicated the award to the Paramount Chief of the Sirigi Traditional Area, Naba Roland Akwara III, who was instrumental in fighting for peace between Doba and Kandiga. 

“This singular honour is dedicated to the paramount chief of the Sirigu traditional area, Naba Atogumdeya Roland Akwara III, whose efforts have restored peace among the people of the Doba and Kandiga communities. I received a plaque, a certificate, an investigative journalism book authored by renowned journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni, and an undisclosed amount of money.”

For the recognition of his role in improving sanitation in the Upper East Region, Mr. Asaah said, “Sanitation is an essential aspect of our daily lives, yet it is often overlooked and neglected in many communities. The Upper East Region of Ghana is no exception, as it faces several challenges in terms of sanitation. Many people are building without making provision for toilet facilities, and that is contributing to open defecation. As a sanitation reporter, I feel a strong sense of responsibility to contribute my quota towards improving the sanitation situation in this region. The honour came with a plaque, a certificate, a brand new laptop that was sponsored by WaterAid Ghana, and a cash amount.”

The 2022 Upper East Regional GJA Awards held in partnership with the main sponsor – the SHARE Project being implemented by Right to Play, FAWE, FHI 360 and WaterAid Ghana with sponsorship from Global Affairs Canada. Other sponsors are, Afrikids Ghana, Earl International Group (Ghana) Gold Mining Ltd, MTN Ghana, Silas Amoah Foundation, Endswell Pharmacy, Youth Harvest Foundation, VRA/NEDCO, Widows and Orphans Movement, Participatory Action for Rural Development Alternatives (PARDA), Bolgatanga Municipal Assembly.
