A citation that accompanied his award read, “During your tenure, you ensured that your experience as a passionate strategist, executive marketer and brand communicator was brought to bear. You believed so much in the future of the Agency and sacri+ced so much for its growth and success.

“It was therefore not surprising that by the end of your tenure, GNA had moved on from a single line product, to piloting four different products, and on course to become, yet again, a vibrant news Agency in Africa. Indeed, your quiet diplomacy in dealing with issues regarding the Agency was telling.”

The citation continued: “You are a true business leader and mentor, and the GNA Management would be eternally grateful for the transformation you brought to the Agency.”

The Ghana News Agency is the foremost news agency in sub-Saharan Africa. Set up on the eve of the country’s independence, March 5, 1957 by President Kwame Nkrumah, the Agency played a key role in the early days of the liberation struggle in Africa, and helped in the promotion and development of African institutions, not least the OAU which later became the AU.

An authoritative news agency in Africa, GNA is highly respected for its truthful, unbiased, credible, objective and accurate news reportage, all done with speed.
