The Editor-In-Chief of GBCGhanaOnline — the web portal of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, GBC, Rebecca Ekpe, has made a strong case for more women to be part of the decision-making table of the Ghana Journalists Association, GJA, as it goes to the polls.

Speaking on the Breakfast Show on GTV ahead of the GJA elections scheduled for Friday, June 24, 2022, Rebecca Ekpe, who is vying for the Public Affairs position of the GJA said there is the need for more women to be included in the helm of affairs of the Association.

This she said, will ensure that the voices of women are heard as they speak to issues that matter.

“…I’m putting myself up in a decision-making space. You will agree with me that if you are not part of the decision-making processes a lot of the time, things elude you,” she said.

She appealed to journalists in the country to vote massively for her and encouraged more women to seek and take up decision-making roles in society.

On making the GJA perceptible, she said the time has come for the Association to be more visible and noticeable especially on social media and online spaces so that information on the GJA, will be easily accessible to all journalists.

“…We’ve gone round the country doing some research. What we’ve picked from journalists is that the Organization is not accessible enough…My role at this point is to make that visibility come alive. I’ve been doing it behind the scenes so this time is just to operationalize it” she said.
