The Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MOFA) has recognized A1 Radio for its outstanding contribution to the development of agriculture in Ghana. This acknowledgment took place during the 39th National Farmers’ Day celebration.

William Nlanjerbor Jalulah, the General Manager of A1 Radio, a subsidiary of Agreed Best Communication Limited, expressed that the award reaffirms the decision of the Upper East Regional GJA Awards Vetting Committee to acknowledge the station as the Best Radio Station of the Year 2022.

“This recognition affirms the acknowledgment by the GJA Awards Vetting Committee, which adjudged A1 Radio as the Best Radio Station of the Year 2022. And for me, these recognitions pose a challenge for us as a company to contribute more to the development of the Upper East Region through quality programming.”

Mr. Jalulah explained that the station’s flagship agricultural program, Agric Forum, has been a true testament to the media outfit’s commitment to the growth and development of agriculture in the Upper East Region.

“The region is predominantly a farming region, and we are conscious of this. That is why we have a weekly agric program aimed at educating farmers on the best farming practices. When I first developed the concept of that program, Agric Forum, which airs every Tuesday from 8:00 pm to 9:00 pm, the language was English. However, after I hosted the first edition, I observed that most of the callers spoke Gurene. Immediately, I knew that the language was supposed to be Gurene. And that was why it became a Gurene program, and the impact has been phenomenal. Although I don’t know the specific criteria the Ministry considers in awarding, I’m convinced that it was largely due to the impact of Agric Forum. I wish to use this opportunity to thank MOFA for the recognition and also Samuel Adagom and David Azure for producing and hosting the program,” he said.

The Upper East Regional Farmers’ Day Celebration was held in Bolgatanga, bringing together staff from all the Departments of Food across the region, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MDCEs), and awardees from all districts.
