The Managing Director of the Graphic Communications Group Limited (GCGL) Mr Kenneth Ashigbey, has eulogised the editor of the Graphic Sports, Mr Felix Abayateye, for his commitment and dedicated service to the company.

Presenting a book titled “Leading Culture Change in Global Organisation” to the retiring sport editor, Mr Ashigbey said the veteran journalist had rendered an unbroken service to Graphic and Ghana for the past 34 years.
