In the sermon titled “Be thank­ful”, Bishop Quartey said being appreciative of God’s goodness at all times would set the Corporation on the path of progress with a reflection in the lives of employees.

Bishop Quartey also stated that the act of expressing thankfulness to God and colleague workers would improve good relationships with others, thereby promoting productivity within the Corpora­tion.

He said having the attitude of thanksgiving is a sign of gratitude, a major key for happiness in life, and protection from anxiety thus the need to be thankful at all times as stated in 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18.

“Thanksgiving is a vehicle that carries us to the next level in our lives. Until we become grateful, we do not move forward. If you main­tain a grateful heart, you will jump over any barrier. Thanksgiving unlocks your faith for elevation”, he said

Bishop Quartey advised the management and staff of NTC not to wait for their expectations to be met before showing appreciation to God but to be thankful with faith.

“Some thank God when things are going their way but fail to do so when they are faced with adver­sities. Such people are known as fair-weather (people),” he said.

Bishop Quartey further advised the staff not to compete with others since they were all created uniquely different, there­fore they should learn to appreci­ate and value others despite their differences.

He also said that anyone who maintained a grateful heart would be able to leap over any barrier or circumstance they come across.

The Managing Director (MD) of NTC, Mr Martin Adu-Owusu, who interspersed his opening address with songs of praise, expressed gratitude to God for a successful 2022.

He commended the staff for their resilience in the face of dif­ficulties encountered in 2022 and urged them to put their best foot forward to help the Corporation to advance in the media industry.

“Let us be thankful to God first and then to our colleagues and we live like this in this house, we shall progress,” he entreated.

Present at the service were David Agbenu, the Editor of the Ghanaian Times; Emmanuel Amponsah, the Editor of the Spectator, management members, departmental heads and Union Executives.
