The President of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA), Albert Kwabena Dwumfour on Monday, December 11, 2023, paid an unannounced visit to the parliamentary press corps to familiarise with them.

Mr Dwumfour, who assumed the GJA presidency in June 2022, took the opportunity to commend the journalists for their dedicated efforts and to express his commitment to improving their working conditions.

During the visit, Mr Dwumfour reiterated his dedication to enhancing the overall conditions of service for journalists and creating an enabling environment for their work.

“This is one of the numerous visits; this is not the first and it won’t be the last. We promised that upon assumption, we are going to work together with journalists and press corps to make sure they get what is due to them, and work is discharged in an enabling environment. We came here on a working day to see how they are being catered for,” Dwumfour stated.

The media consultant and Head of Corporate Affairs at the Tobinco Group of Companies emphasized the importance of direct engagement with journalists. He encouraged the executives of the parliamentary press corps to ensure their members enrol in the GJA and highlighted the various benefits, including scholarships, capacity-building workshops, and other opportunities designed to enrich journalists’ skills.

Dwumfour’s victory in the GJA presidential election marked a turning point, as he triumphed over notable competitors such as the Editor of the Ghanaian Times and former General Secretary of the GJA, Dave Agbenu, and Communications Consultant at the Speaker’s Office Gayheart Mensah

On his part, the Dean of the Parliamentary Press Corps, Simon Agianab commended the President of the GJA for recognizing the contribution of the parliamentary press corps to Ghana’s parliamentary democracy.

He also responded to an invitation by the GJA for PPC members to join the umbrella body saying that was a laudable initiative which will be attended to by the executive body.

He said even though most members of the PPC are not part of the GJA, Mr Dwumfour still found time to campaign with members during his run for the Presidency of the GJA.

Mr Agianab who is also the Managing News Editor of the Accra Times also thanked the GJA President for the visit and extended the appreciation of the PPC for his “attempt to add us the umbrella of the Ghanaian journalism fraternity.”

The GJA President was accompanied on his visit by Gabriel Bosompem, a former Production Manager of TV3 (Media General) who is now a member of the National Media Commission (NMC).
