Power fm’s lead News anchor and talk show host respectively have won the admiration of a group known as Concerned Drivers association, who has awarded them for their instrumental role in their welfare.
According to the drivers, Oheneba Boamah Benie and Daakyehene Ofosu Agyeman through their experienced story telling techniques on their news, got most of their pressing issues across and key among them was the campaign to abolish government’s proposed luxury and vehicle tax.
Drivers have suffered from various government policies and failures including petroleum price hikes, deplorable roads and the Cedi depreciation and in times like this unbiased and result oriented story telling by journalist becomes their best bet to get burden off them.
About 15 journalists across the country as well as drivers and DVLA executives were rewarded for their roles in promoting the welfare of drivers.
The group made up of commercial drivers indicated Power fm and few other stations have set themselves apart in the wake of what appear to be a media space that fears to go all out and point out the shortcomings of the Akuffo Addo administration.
A humbled Oheneba Boamah Benie and Dakyehene Ofosu Agyeman say the award is a vote of confidence in their daily routine on the News and Battleground on Power 97.9fm.
