Chief Executive Officer for Chamber of Agribusiness Ghana, the organization that set up the award, Anthony Selorm K. Morrison said the station was recognized for its efforts at promoting the growth and development of Agribusiness in Ghana.
“Citi FM was selected in three categories and they won one….From the committee that worked on it, Citi FM was outstanding in terms of radio and the fact that they always shed more light on Agribusiness news stories. They always on their morning show talk about agriculture, statistics, value addition and a lot of other agribusiness information. So the committee felt that, they deserved the award because they have been able to pull along the middle-class people to appreciate what is going on in the sector.”
“They have made Agribusiness one of their tenets of news items and every now and then there is something being done on Agribusiness. I think to a large extent Citi FM requires our commendation and we seek to partner Citi FM,” Mr. Morrison said.
