In the wake of attacks on Journalist in their line of duty in Ghana, the Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) has in collaboration with Norway’s Journalist Association started training some media practitioners on safety in their line of duty in Accra.

In an interview with President of the Association, Roland Affail Monney revealed that the training workshop will be replicated in the regions to sharpen the sense of security in all areas which will pose as danger to Journalist.

He further added that apart from the collaboration the association is having with their counterpart from Norway, the Norwegian government is supporting in the exercise.

As to what advice he has for Ghanaian Journalist, he said, media practitioners should value their life more than the work they do.

Again the International Federation of Journalist (IFJ) is pushing for governments to extend protection to Journalist, “we will push for that convention”, the  UN has also come out with safety guidelines for  Journalist we will train Journalist on this content and for them to adhered to it  in their day to day work
