Prominent Journalist Finally ‘Exposes’ Akufo Addo Government Again- Read Details.
The prominent media personality and news anchor has recently done the unexpected after she boldly exposed some government officials over the decline in press freedom and the rise in the abuse of the media in the country. Speaking in a recent interview on JoyNews’ ” Newsfile” show, the renowned broadcast journalist, Afia Pokuaa took the privilege to express her immense disappointment in the incumbent government’ s decision to overlook the recent attacks on the media hence leading to the recent poor ranking of the Ghanaian media in terms of freedom of expression of the media amongst other related issues.
” I think that we need a workable professional regulation or policy going for it and in this policy, I am emphasizing the word ‘ workable’ and not just theoretical as we have done in the past. I think that a workable policy should speak to media ownership.
The National Communications Authority should desist from seeking frequencies to party official members of parliament party agents who have transmogrified themselves into media owners; this is one of the key issues that is contributing to self- censorship.
These people are not trained media people who have worked in the media, they are just political apparatchiks who just want the media platform to pursue their agenda including one of the things we have emphasized the point here” , Afia Pokuaa emphatically revealed.
