Sulemana Braimah, Executive Secretary of Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) has called on President Akufo-Addo’s handlers to allow him to do his yearly meeting with the media at the Jubilee House.
According to Mr Braimah, the meeting allows the Ghanaian media to ask the President pertinent questions bothering citizens.
“I am surprised that it hasn’t happened because at some point it was almost an annual affair. It was one of the things that the government communicators use to tout the credentials of the government. In terms of how things are and the Journalist engage the President on behalf of the people,” he said.
The Executive Secretary continued that “I think after a year of the elections we haven’t seen any such encounter and I am surprised it hasn’t happened.
“Ideally, it is useful despite the downfalls. It’s quite surprising that 2-years on it hasn’t happened. I don’t know why the handlers have decided not to make the President available for the media engagement.”
