NPP to prosecute formidable campaign to ‘break the eight’

 The Central Regional Branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is poised to implement a formidable campaign to “break the eight” in the upcoming elec­tion in 2024.

It revealed that it had laid down well-structured measures and policies at all levels to main­tain power to change the fortunes of the country.

Mr Richard Takyi-Mensah, the regional secretary of the NPP, who made the remarks said the party had the desire to create a

 good environment for citizens and businesses to thrive to stabilise the economy for the benefits of all.

He was addressing journalists at a press soirée, organised by the party to appreciate the work of the media.

MrTakyi-Mensah said the NPP had initiated a lot of credible policies in favour of the media, in­cluding the repeal of criminal libel and the Media Capacity Building and Enhancement Programme.

The government, he said, under the NPP party was work­ing tirelessly to make the systems work. MrTakyi-Mensah therefore called on journalists to be cir­cumspect in their reportage and highlight the good works of the government.

He urged the media to ensure fairness and be neutral in their re­ports to avoid misunderstanding in the minds of the populace.

MrTakyi-Mensah appealed to morning show hosts to be careful with some comments which tend to tarnish the image and reputa­tion of prominent personalities in the country.

Mr Michael Arthur-Dadzie, former Executive Director of the Fisheries Commission, highlight­ing some cases of defamation, urged journalists to cross check their facts before publication to avoid prosecution.

He urged the show hosts to exhibit absolute neutrality on their shows and write ups and regulate programmes that could cause chaos and confusion in the country.

Mr Robert Kutin Jnr, the regional chairman of the NPP, praised journalists in the region for supporting the development agenda of the region and urged them to continue to propagate the good works of the govern­ment.

He was hopeful that the cor­dial relations between the party and the media would be further strengthened.

For his part, Mr David Yar­boiTetteh, the regional chairman of the Ghana Journalists’ Associ­ation (GJA) called for a strength­ened collaboration between the party and the media.
