Multimedia journalist, Patrick Osei Agyemang, popularly known in media circles as Countryman Songo, is due for a comeback next Monday, adomonline.com can confirm.
Songo who has been off air for some time now has been preparing for his return in the last few days and he has exclusively confirmed that he will be back on the our television screens on Monday.
The award-winning journalist who hosts Ghana’s most-watched mid-day television show, “Fire 4 Fire” on Adom TV has been off air for what Management says is for “strategic reasons”.
Songo, a known critic of sports, particularly football, was off air when the recent scandal hit Ghana football.
Viewers have therefore been yearning for his views on the happenings, especially as he has, in the past, insisted that there is rot in the game that needs the state’s attention.
At a recent Presidential Press Meet at the Jubilee House, the tough-talking journalist was on record to have asked the president about his action on an existing government white paper of a commission of inquiry, the Dzamefe Commission” to which the president said he had “forgotten”.
Subsequent to that encounter, Songo has been expressing his disappointment in the president’s answer, insisting that the answer provided by the president spells doom for football in the country.
It is not clear what his position will be on the Anas’ Number 12 Expose but one thing is certain – viewers will enjoy an energized “Fire Man” who has been given a deserved rest.
Songo’s comeback means that his substitute, Kobby Stone, who has been doing a good job in his absence, will now concentrate on his other duties on radio.
