The Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA)is advocating for the immediate removal of the President of the Ghana Journalist Association, Affail Monney.
Their reason is that the GJA President has failed to protect Ghanaian journalists.
According to ASEPA, the GJA President betrayed the principles of the GJA after justifying the assault of Caleb Kudah.
“We believe Mr. Monney cannot continue to hold himself as the President of the GJA after such reckless display of not just cowardice but individualism, and failing to uphold the interests of all journalists in the country. We are therefore calling for the immediate removal of Mr. Affail Monney as GJA president. This is the only way the GJA can distance itself from the comments of Mr. Monney and show solidarity to their compatriots,” a statement from ASEPA said.
