Let’s be circumspect in reporting political activities this year – GJA tells journalists

President of the Ghana Journalists Association, Mr Albert Kwabena Dwumfour, has urged journalists to be circumspect in the coverage of presidential primaries of political parties in 2023.

He said those activities were precursors of the 2024 general election, and thus demands that media practitioners be fair, balanced and guided by the code of ethics.

Mr Dwumfour made the remarks at this year’s Adom City Group’s thanksgiving service dubbed, “Aseda Kesie” in Accra.

The event was organised by the leadership of the GJA to thank God for a successful and fulfilling year in 2022.

The GJA President also entreated the media to promote and support local private companies so they could create more jobs for rapid economic development.

He said the private sector was the engine of growth and needed the support of the media to excel.

“As journalists, one of our cardinal responsibilities is to protect and promote the interest of local companies that are legitimately working to complement the efforts of government,” he stressed.

Meanwhile, the CEO of Adom City Group of Companies, Mr Bright Adom, said the company had a lot to thank God for, in the year under review.

Mr Adom stated the commitment of the Group to continue to provide affordable housing units for the public as well as create jobs and facilitate socioeconomic development.

He called on the government to continue to provide an enabling environment for the industry to thrive.

Gospel musicians like Obaapa Christy, Oheneba Clement, Minister Paolo and Jack Alolome performed at the event.
