The GJA and Its Media Partners End Media Blackout on Hon Farouk Aliu Mahama

10, 5, 2024



The Ghana Journalists Association, together with its partners,  has  ended  the media blackout on the Member of Parliament for the  Yendi  constituency Hon Farouk Aliu Mahama with  immediate effect. 

Addressing the press at the International Press Centre in Accra, the President of the Ghana Journalists Association,  Mr Albert Dumfour  explained that Hon Farouk Aliu Mahama had demonstrated  his sincere commitment to smoothing  his relationship with the media and that the Ministry of Information had also  intervened  in the resolution process.  

Mr Dumfour disclosed that the Management of Citi FM was satisfied  with the resolution procedure as well as other partners of the GJA, and as a result, the media blackout was no longer in force. 

The blackout was occasioned as a result of a misunderstanding between the Yendi legislator and a media representative from Citi FM during the recent Parliamentary primaries in the Yendi constituency. 

 The media blackout on Hon Hawa Koomson by the GJA was  also lifted today. 

It is expected that the relationship of Hon Farouk Aliu Mahama with the media  will enjoy a new page  for the good of freedom of the media and expression in Ghana. 

The GJA  used the opportunity to thank the media and its stakeholders for their cooperation during the blackout and assured them that the GJA will continue to promote press freedom in Ghana.
