Government has urged media houses and Journalists in other parts of the country to take advantage of support programmes aimed at building their capacity.

The Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, who made the appeal during an interaction with the Volta Regional branch of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), said the programs are not only restricted to media houses in the national capital.

He said the National Media Commission (NMC), which is the implementing body tasked by Cabinet, will soon embark on regional sensitization engagements on the programs with stakeholders.

The two programs, Media Capacity Enhancement Programme and the Co-ordinated Mechanism for Safety of Journalists, are aimed at creating a conducive and safe environment for media practitioners.

It is also to enhance their capacity to effectively play their role in consolidating the country’s democratic gains.

The Information Minister appealed to the media to continue to collaborate with government on its current efforts to get the economy back on track post-Covid through the acquisition of more vaccines, the injection of 100 billion cedis into the economy through the Ghana Care Obantampa program and focusing on security in Ghana following the recent terrorism threats in the subregion.
