The Daily Graphic sides with Dr. Sam Jonah on his call for the media to act responsibly as the nation inches towards election 2020. Speaking at the launch of the GJA Awards in Accra, Dr. Jonah tasked the media to help maintain thriving peace and stability of the country. The paper such a call must see the 2020 elections as an advancement of the country’s democracy and a process to further improve the lives of people and well-being of the country. The Graphic is of the view that it is time the media put the national interests.It urges the media to take a cue from the electoral violence and other conflicts that had plagued other countries, and act responsibly.
The Ghanaian Times pays tribute to the veteran Journalist and communication specialist, Dr. Doris Yaa Dartey. According the paper, Dr. Dartey’s contribution to the growth of the Ghanaian Media with the respect to practice, mentorship and supervision in various capacities, is too significant to be swept under the carpet. At the NMC, the veteran journalist served as one of two representatives of the GJA on the Commission and helped to further the mandate of the Commission. For almost a decade, she served as a member and later chairperson of the GJA Media Awards Committee, while discharging other services as consultant for GJA and donor-funded projects of national and international institutions. With such a rich profile, the Ghanaian Times is of view that the media and communication fraternity and the country has lost a gem who has paid her dues and would be remembered for her meritorious service
