The journey of Azongo Agana Simon Blessing from the classrooms of Zuarungu Senior High School to the airwaves of Word FM both in the Bolgatanga East District of the Upper East Region took a new turn on Wednesday, February 21st, 2024, as he was officially recruited into the esteemed ranks of the Ghana Police Service. The transition marks a significant milestone in Azongo’s career as he embarks on a new chapter, dedicated to serving Ghana with honor, integrity, and dedication.

Having served as a professional teacher at the Zuarungu Senior High School, Azongo brought passion, knowledge, and dedication to his role, shaping the minds and futures of countless students under his tutelage. His commitment to education and youth development earned him respect and admiration from colleagues, students, and parents alike.

In a bold move, Azongo navigated from the classroom to the world of journalism, where he lent his voice and expertise to the airwaves as a broadcaster at Word FM – a community radio station located in Zuarungu. As a journalist, Azongo, who was the host of the station’s flagship program ‘Word Community Watch’ served as a beacon of truth, transparency, and accountability, using his platform to inform, educate, and empower listeners with timely and accurate news and information.

While on training, the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA)-Upper East chapter on October 6th, 2023, honored Mr. Azongo during its 2nd regional awards as Best Development Reporter and Best Water Reporter respectively.

The two awards were in recognition of his work in related fields for the year 2022 which included a report he carried out about how the people of the Sikabisi community in the Bongo district were competing with animals for brownish water from an almost hand-dug well.

Through the report, a hand pump borehole was drilled for the community. In a similar vein, Tundaadoma-Doone, a community in the Kasena Nankana West had no water and the community members had to walk long kilometers to access water. Adding to the lack of access to potable sources of water, the community existed without a befitting school block. The report caught the eye of an NGO that constructed an ultramodern classroom block and a borehole for the community.

But today, Azongo’s journey takes a new direction as he takes on the mantle of a police officer, answering the call to serve and protect his community and country. His decision to join the Ghana Police Service reflects his unwavering commitment to public service and his desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

His transition from teacher to journalist and now a police officer is a testament to his versatility, adaptability, and dedication to serving others. As he embarks on his new role as a police officer, well-wishers took to social media to wish him well in his new field and entreated him to remain committed to upholding the values of integrity, professionalism, and service to Ghana.

Mr. Azongo has a Bachelor of Education in Psychology and Foundations of Education from UCC. A Master of Education in Educational Psychology from UCC and is currently pursuing Master of Philosophy in Educational Psychology from UCC
