Sani Abdul-Rahman, a financial journalist at the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) has been adjudged the best mining reporter at the 6th Mining Industry Awards in Accra.

The Awards, organized by the Ghana Chamber of Mines, celebrates excellence and contributions to the development of Ghana’s mining sector.

Mr Abdul-Rahman was awarded for his in-depth reporting that highlighted the gender imbalance across the mining industry value-chain.

According to him, Socio-cultural tendencies have hindered Ghanaian women from exploring mining engineering roles in the metal extraction industry.

The award-winning journalist is the host of Weekly Press Review, a round-up of major newspaper headlines on GBC News.

He was crowned at a gala dinner at Movenpick Ambassador Hotel on Friday November 20.

“I am deeply honoured for this recognition. It is important we promote diversity and inclusion in the mining industry to enhance creativity and more innovation,” Mr Abdul-Rahman said during the ceremony.

The crowned journalist began his journalism career at Kapital Radio, where he was a news anchor and a co-host of the morning show.

He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Relations from the Ghana Institute of Journalism and a Higher National Diploma in Journalism from the Institute of Business Management and Journalism.
