The UN Secretary-Generals Special Representative for West Africa and the Sahel, Dr. Mohammed Ibn Chambas, who was the guest of honour at the grand opening, noted that TV3 had continued to set the pace for the media, especially in the area of broadcasting.
He urged the media to abstain from hate speeches and have a high sense of responsibility by promoting peace on their platforms, saying “words are swords and when uttered carelessly can maim or kill.”
According to Dr. Chambas, the world was looking up to Ghana to conduct peaceful elections, having conducted six successful elections.
He called on Ghanaians to support the security agencies to carry out their duties of protecting lives and property professionally.
Dr. Chambas said he was impressed with the preparedness of the Electoral Commission towards the upcoming elections, and said the United Nations (UN), Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union (AU) would continue to support the effort of the country to consolidate peace in the country.
Mr. John German, the Group Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Media General said the station was poised to be the employer of choice in Africa and beyond by promoting excellence among its workers.
“We will position Media General as a platform to take Ghana beyond its boundaries. We have great plans ahead and this is just the beginning”, he said.
The Board Chairman of the station, Kojo Yankah observed that the media still had a long way to go in terms of upholding the ethics of the profession and called for increased efforts at promoting excellence and professionalism.
