FUTURE OF MANY GHANAIAN JOURNALISTS AT STAKE – Information Minister

The future of many Ghanaian journalists is at stake given the poor economic conditions and welfare they are confronted with, Mr Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, Minister of Information, has lament

“There are many of our brothers and sisters who at the end of the month do not get salary.

“There are many who do not even get their statutory payments made on their behalf by their employers. If we do not deal with it, our own very future is at stake,” he said.

Mr Oppong-Nkrumah was addressing the second annual dinner night of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), in Accra.

Referring to the 2023 World Press Freedom Index, the Information Minister pointed out that the single item that dragged Ghana down the most, bordered on the poor conditions of service for Ghanaian journalists.

“There are many who do not have their necessary pension deductions made and paid in the Pensions Fund for them,” he stated.

This, he said, did not augur well for the future of those journalists, especially “when they are no longer in active service.”
