The Communication Director of the Progressive People’s Party, Mr. Paa Kow Ackon has praised the members of his team, describing them as the best and most civil when it comes to political party communication in Ghana.
He said, compared to other communicators in the other parties who have been cited for using insightful language, hate speech and abusive language as reported by the Media Foundation for West Africa in the run-up to the 2016 elections, none of the PPP communicators was among those classified. This he said is due to the proper training and guidance that is given to all members of the communication team in the party. He said communicators of the PPP always apply issue-based discussions anytime they have the opportunity.
Mr. Paa Kow Ackon was explaining the functions of the PPP Communication Directorate on PPP Nyinaso shown on ATV on 29th May, 2018. He indicated that, the communication directorate of the party is the face and mouth piece for promoting and explaining the 10-Point Agenda of the party. Watch the full version of the video here:
