DJUGA’s Vice President, Hubert Kofi Anti, said the Union is conducting a poll on social media stating that the continuity of the walk quarterly or annually will be based on feedback from the community.

“Our understanding is that, most of our DJs, both on radio and the ones who play at parties, hardly dedicate time to exercising and we believe this exercise goes a long way to change that culture for the benefit of our cherished members since health, as we all know, is wealth,” he added.
