Barely one month for Ghanaians to go to the polls, the role of the media as a key stakeholder remains critical and must be prosecuted with maximum circumspection; that is according to Robert Ajene, Upper East Regional Chairman of the Media Advisory Committee.
At a one-day media engagement organized by the Regional Media Advisory Committee in Bolgatanga on Wednesday, October 12, Chairman Ajene said Ghana stands first in the strategic position of peace and democracy and can therefore do it again. “Peaceful election goes beyond going to vote but what happens before, during and after the election”, he emphasized.
After congratulating the Ghanaian media for its good work in the past six general elections, he observed there will be no successful elections if the media fails to educate the electorate on issues being raised by those seeking the mandate of the electorate.
Mr. Ajene, a renowned retired educationist in the Upper East Region, charged media practitioners not to show preferences or bias when reporting on the elections as he cautioned that has the potentialto cause mayhem during hat period.
