Popular investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has sarcastically commented that, the ongoing Russia and Ukraine war has affected Ghana’s Press freedom ranking. He mockingly added President Akufo-Addo isn’t lucky.
In a post shared on his official Facebook page on Tuesday, 3rd May 2022, he wrote;
“The war in Ukraine has affected Ghana’s press freedom ranking. Akufo-Addo isn’t lucky koraa o.”
The comments of Manasseh Azure comes as a background to the current rank of Press Freedom released. Ghana drops to 60th place in the latest press freedom index. In 2021, Ghana was 30th.
According to the report on the ranking, Press Freedom is deteriorating in Ghana. The west African nation often hailed as a bastion of free speech has dropped 30 places in the latest global Press Freedom Index.
In Africa, the country fell from third to tenth place. The Press Freedom Index measures pluralism, media independence, and the safety of journalists. What is accounting for this decline?
