President and Chief Executive Officer, CEO, of the BlackGold Group, Oscar Sam Ugoh, has been honored for his success and contributions to the print industry in Ghana. The award was presented to him at a private ceremony held in his honor last week in Accra.
Executive Chairman of KRIF Ghana Limited, Rev. Kennedy Okosun, was joined by his Executive Director, Awura Adwoa Okosun, to present the citation which extoled the virtues of Mr. Ugoh with the justification that he has blazed the trail to remain on top of his peers in his chosen industry.
According to Rev Okosun, “the likes of Oscar are few in the system and if all of us should practice humility the way he does it, the world would be a better place for us all to live in and enjoy”.
The citation reads “In fitting recognition of your exemplary service to the world, in particular Ghana

In a brief remark, an overwhelmed Oscar Ugoh said though he believed that there is a reward for whatever one does on earth whether good or bad, he least expected that such recognition and honor would get to him soon. He narrated part of the challenges he had to go through to stay in competition in a fast growing publication industry which is also being threatened by the advent of technology.
He was grateful to God Almighty for bringing him thus far as well as his staff who always stood by him and encouraged him to stay afloat for better days ahead.
