Broadcast Journslist FOKA has expressed disappointment to all political parties contesting for this year election for not having any plans for Journalists in
The broadcast Journalist's real name Frank Owusu Kojo Asiamah believes that the presidential
candidates cannot solve all issues in the
country during their the four year term but
they should try and help journalists and Media houses because the system is not helping
The 'News Editor’ at Asuogyaman fm speaking with Kwaku Bee Abrantie
on Osagyefo FM said after listening to the flag
bearers of the various political parties, he did
not hear any of them hint on putting measures to raise low salaries and Allowance of Journalists
in the country, something he thinks
should have been promised.
He further advised his colleagues not to
endorse political parties for their personal
gains but for the sake of their listeners and reader's .
“They can’t tackle everything about Ghana
within a particular time given to them. There
should be a structure like supporting and
helping Journalists and media houses or helping organize a workshop each year in All the ten regions for Journalists will help in trying to find their way
into the world market.
So far, they’ve not fused anything about the
whole grooming thing into their policies. I
won’t speak for only myself but will leave it
for them because they know what they want
and what they think will help Ghana.
If they think Journalism/Media won’t contribute
anything to the growth of the country then its
up to them.
Its an advice to us the Journalist , if we are to sit on radio and talk for them or
endorse any of the political parties it should
not be for our pockets but for the people.
If these politicians are not putting anything in
place that will help the Journalist's enhance the
talent we have in Ghana then I think we should
critically look at it.
Coming out with a manifesto without measures
to help the Media and Journalist then I think,I'm disappointed in all the political parties and
we have a big problem as a country . I hope they have
something they don’t want to disclose to the
people” he opined.
