According to him this, is to help in conducting Association duties. He was speaking in an interview with the GBC in Sunyani when some Executives of the GJA paid a visit to BAR to speak on the maiden edition of the BA/GJA Awards slated July 27, 2019, at Eusbette International Conference Center.

The Executives, which included the National President of GJA, Roland Affail Monney was in the studios of Radio BAR to promote the maiden BA GJA awards.

During a radio discussion on BAR’s Morning Show ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Mr. Affail Monney touched on a wide range of issues concerning the GJA such as welfare of members, press freedom and security.

He asserted that although Ghana has lost its position as the best place for journalists in Africa, it does not take away the freedom journalists enjoy in the country.

Mr. Monney however, expressed worry about the incessant attacks on journalists in the country in recent times saying it is a threat to the country’s democracy.

The GJA President consequently, revealed that his outfit is dedicated to solving the issue and as such is collaborating with other stakeholders to come up with a definite solution.

He however, charged journalist to discharge their duties responsible to avoid some of these attacks.

There was an assurance from the awards committee about the credibility of the whole process.
