The Graphic Communications Group Company Limited has added ‘Graphic Spotlight’ as a new segment to its news papers.
This will be published in the middle of the Daily Graphic newspaper every Saturday and is expected to highlight the various developmental projects in the 16 regions of the country.
Speaking at the regional launch in Bono Region, Mrs Mavis Kitcher, Director of News Papers, said the focus of the new segment would be on sanitation, education and health issues, among others.
She added it was the belief of management that the initiative would compel various government officials and developmental agents to go the extra mile to ensure their areas of jurisdiction are developed.
The director called on the general public to make it a habit to purchase the Daily Graphic especially the weekend edition as a way of supporting the core mandate of the initiative.
The initiative which was launched last Saturday, December 14 amidst a documentary of some traditions and culture as well as historical beliefs and tourist sites in Bono region attracted the presence of some dignitaries and traditional leaders, including the Krontihene of Sunyani Traditional Council, Oboaman Bofotia Boamponsem.
In his address the traditional leader called on all and sundry to help rebrand the region to foster development. He stated that even though the former Brong Ahafo Region had been split into three regions, majority of Ghanaians still referred to Bono region with the former name, hence the need to rebrand it.
On her part, the Bono Regional Minister, Madam Evelyn Ama Kumi Richardson gave assurance of the government’s commitment to ensuring the massive development of the region and described the Daily Graphic initiative as a move in the right direction.
