Upper West Regional Communications Director of the ruling New Patriotic Party, who doubles as Deputy Regional NADMO Director, Mr. Ali Bukari has been a strong advocate for local media houses to be actively involved in national events.
He believes that priority must always be given to local journalists and media houses in the Upper West Region when national events are held in the region. He stress that, once the local media guys understand and can translate the message in the local dialect, greater percentage of the spotlight must be directed at them.
Mr. Ali stated that, the local dailect will better spread the message of the party and government among the local folks rather than basing all the concentration on the national or Accra base media houses.
He admonished media practitioners in the Upper West Region to act professional in their reportage to pitch them for National duties.
The Director was responding to concerns raised by the media houses during a media tour embarked by the NPP’s Upper West Regional Chairman S.B Kangbere with some of the regional executives of the party.
Meanwhile, Chairman S.B Kangbere revealed that, he has discussed with the Regional Minister, Hafiz Bin Salih to address the concern.
