An Accra-based journalist with Oman FM, Michael Cregg Afful, has been acknowledged and awarded the Best Energy Reporter of the year 2018.
It was part of a scheme by the Ghana Energy Awards to encourage and appreciate journalists, who are keen to bring to the fore the happenings in the energy sector of the country.
Creg, having demonstrated his strong passion to educate and inform the public with his broadcast news and publications in The Chronicle, made him the preferred candidate for the award as against others.
Among some of his notable articles included the controversial Ameri Power deal, which led to the dismissal of the former Energy Minister, Mr Boakye Agyarko.
Mr. Afful, commenting on the prestige bestowed him, said the award was a recognition of his hard work and efforts to help Ghanaians appreciate the contributions of the sector.
He went on to say that apart from covering energy events, he brought together on a single platform all the energy sector Public Relation Officers (PROs) to deliberate and update other members on the happenings in the sector.
“In fact, not only the PROs, I update all those who matter in the sector, including CEOs, of what is happening in Ghana and outside the country on a daily basis,” he added.
He commended the organisers of the awards for recognising his contributions to the energy sector.
Mr Afful dedicated the award to his late mother, Madam Sarah Abban, Executive Secretary of Public Utilities Regulatory Commission, Mami Dufie-Ofori, Dr Moses Okine of Oman FM, CEO of Kencity Media Limited, Mrs. Stella Wilson-Agyapong, and his media colleagues who have supported him all these years.
He pledged his commitment to work hard in the coming years to shape policies in the energy sector.
