The National Democratic Congress (NDC) General Secretary has received a delegation from organisers of the maiden annual Ghana Media Music and Dinner Night scheduled for July 30, 2022, at the Accra International Conference Centre.

The courtesy call on Asiedu Nketia, led by Dr Bernard B. N. A. Yartey, CEO of Lakeside Village, was to invite the outspoken political leader and some party executives to seek their blessings.

The NDC scribe commended the event organisers, Lakeside Village and Net Village, for the initiative.

He said the media plays a vital role in nation-building, and it was appropriate to set a day aside to dine and network with them.

“We thought through and realised how important the media is, so we decided to come up with this dinner gala. It is not an award ceremony.

“The media all over the world go through a lot of stress, resulting in the death of many. We believe it will go a long way to destress them and bring them together to network in a relaxed atmosphere.”

Expected to grace the event are dignitaries from the traditional, political, diplomatic corps, and corporate and entertainment fraternities.

The event is a yearly celebration of media excellence, dedicated to honouring and acknowledging the achievements of media personalities in the country, both past and present.

The event also seeks to discover and invest in the art and act of journalism in Ghana while creating opportunities for knowledge transfer and sharing between the local media and their contemporaries from around the world.

The event has received support through partnerships from Rosewood Residence, UK, Trap, The Radio Advertising People, Foreword Media Group and Universal Merchant Bank (UMB).
