GJA_AshantiThe Ashanti Regional branch of Ghana Journalists Association has launched an award scheme to acknowledge the work of media practitioners in the region. This annual event is aimed at encouraging journalists to bring out compelling and development-oriented stories. Addressing media personnel at the launch, Ashanti regional minister entreated journalists to refrain from broadcasting or publishing fabricated stories.

“Concoted story is more poisonous than fake drugs because news spread faster than distribution of fake drugs. Fake news can break up families, communities, and countries. As journalists, you should always ensure what you put out for public consumption is factual”, Simon Osei-Mensah advised. The minister assured that the regional press centre, which has been neglected for years, will be completed by the end of 2019.We have levied all the 43 MMDAs to generate more funds to complete the project. I am certain the Press Centre will be completed by the end of this year,

Others are science and Technology, Anti-Corruption, Education, Environmental Sanitation and Hygiene and Oil and Gas and Mining, Online journalism, Entertainment, and Business reporting.

Special awards will be given to selected media establishments and personalities before the Overall Journalist of the year crowned.
