Ordinary Ahmad Isah who has refused to be reduced to a State of origin in his identification, but to be simply known as a detribalised Nigerian was born in the early 70’s in Idanre, Ondo state to a Dangara Village father who speaks the Ganagana language under Kwali Area Council of FCT, Nigeria. Whereas, he had major part of his early years in Nassarawa (Kakuri), useful parts of his middle age spent in Kaduna. Luckily, he came from a poor family but, through hard work, courage and dedication to duty, he has refused to allow his poor family background to keep his own back on the ground as natural with poverty, even with its strong limiting factors. His father’s maker recalled him at the very early part of Ordinary Ahmad’s life, and his mother who is still alive took charge as a focused widow that is determined to give her children a life with a defined sense of direction within the limit of her capabilities. Her mother’s determination to see her children survive, and her child disciplinarian stance helped Ordinary Ahmad to effectively deal with youthful exuberances and their unpleasant consequences when misdirected.
Once he was of age, Ordinary Ahmad Isah ventured into journalism when it was necessary to do something productive. The marks he has made in this sector are clear indications that he came with a vision and worked hard to translate the vision into what you see today as Brekete Family reality radio/TV reality talk show and programs which have become a great succour to many, irrespective of social status, religion, tribe, colour or nationality. Brekete Family has also begotten Human Rights Radio/TV networks airing on 101.1 FM, Abuja. This is the very first and, presently the only 100% human rights centred radio and TV station in the whole world dedicated to giving unlimited and potent voice to the voiceless. In a bid to reach out to all and sundry and give everyone an accessible potent platform where they can communicate and interact at the lowest levels without the usual language barrier, he anchors his program in pidgin English.
Ordinary Ahmad is indeed redefining broadcasting as the initiator and driver of the first 100% Human Rights Radio/TV station delivering outstanding investigative and developmental journalism programs and reality talk shows structured to give voice to the voiceless aimed at contributing in ensuring peaceful coexistence and sustainable development. His multifaceted expertise is strategically deployed through this Brekete Family reality Radio/TV program to resolve disputes that have defiled conventional approaches; to provide uncommon multilevel supports to the vulnerable, the less-privileged and the indigent; and much more, to avail succour and a potent voice to the voiceless victims of human rights violation, social and administrative injustice. Ordinary Ahmad Isah has built Brekete to become the greatest platform of our time for people to fight for their rights and obtain justice where the traditional institutions have failed in their duties to the citizens. Ordinary Ahmad has stretched the sphere of citizen’s rights advocacy and social justice to the areas that were ordinarily not open to civil interventions. His leadership has piloted Brekete Family into being recognized as an epitome of media renaissance through his investigative and developmental journalism, unimaginable philanthropy and daring human right’s activism that knows no boundaries.
His compassion for the less- privileged has endeared him to millions of people across the globe. The followership he enjoys through the Brekete radio/TV platform is understandingly fanatical.
