President Nana Akufo-Addo has congratulated the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) on its election held last week.
“I extend warm congratulations to the entire membership of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) for the successful conduct of their elections of Friday, 29 September, 2017, which saw the selection of executives to steer the affairs of the Association for the next four years.
“I congratulate Affail Monney on his decisive re-election as President of the GJA; Linda Asante Agyei as Vice President; Edmund Kofi Yeboah as General Secretary; Mary Mensah in-charge of Public Affairs; and Albert Tuffuor as Organising Secretary.
