Broadcast journalist and News Editor of Power 97.9 FM, Daakyehene Ofosu Agyeman, says he believes his responsible reporting during the 2020 elections could earn him an RTP Award this year.
According to the award-winning news anchor, he deserves the ‘Reporter of the year’ award because of his matured way of handling an incident at the Electoral Commission (EC) during the 2020 elections.
“I was at EC on 9th Dec, 2020 to attend a press conference by the commission only to be told at the gate that Power Fm was not invited and imagine Mugabe Maase was the host at that time and they were calling me for an update” he explained.
Speaking on the Power Midmorning Show hosted by Agyeman Prempeh (Agyeman Nie), he stated, “ I asked the EC official whether he knows what could happen if I go on air and say Power Fm isn’t invited. But I was calm and told my host that the presser hasn’t started and thank God it didn’t take place there and they told us to move to the Accra International Conference Hall.”
