All roads lead to the plush Gold Coast Kempinski Hotel in Accra tonigth, where more than 40 Ghanaian journalists will be honoured by the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) for distinguished reportage at its 23rd Awards Night.

GJA President Affail Money hints tonight’s awards will be one of the best the GJA has ever organized.

Among those slated to receive awards are the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, GBC’s Rebecca Ekpe and Peggy Ama Donkor among others. GBC’s OBONU Station is also picked to be awarded.
