Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has urged the media not to forget about the importance of credibility, professionalism, and other ethics in journalism.
"The media is doing well but they need to avoid opinion journalism. The fact must be reported and not rumours. Journalists must keep their views out of their reportage," he urged.
The Information Minister made this remark on the back of the opening of the Media Capacity Enhancement Programme (MCEP) 2022.
The programme which is being spearheaded by the government and its partners, including the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ), the National Media Commission (NMC) and the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) is aimed at training 250 media practitioners annually under a scholarship.
Speaking to sit-in host, Nana Yaw Kesseh on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', the Ofoase Ayiribi MP likened the training programme to Free SHS saying: "This is like a free SHS for the media...all you need to do is to go and study".
