President Nana Akufo-Addo has implored journalists to have the humility to acknowledge their mistakes. According to him, “politicians are not the only persons who make mistakes.” He said “media practitioners, like all human beings, can also make mistakes, and when they do, they should have the humility to acknowledge their error, and not have their misdeeds atoned under the guise of ” media freedom.”
President Akufo-Addo made the remarks whilst delivering a speech at the 2019 Ghana Bar Association Conference on yesterday, September 9, 2019.
He added that “irresponsible media practice is an abuse of freedom of expression, not its manifestation.” That notwithstanding, he revealed that “strenuous efforts are being made to find the killer or killers of Ahmed Suale, who will be found and made to face justice.” Mr. Suale was an undercover investigative journalist with Tiger Eye PI.
He was shot and killed by unknown persons in Madina, a suburb of Accra.
