” I have the opportunity to borrow from our President, “Fellow Ghanaians,” and my colleagues in the Press Corps, it is indeed a great honor and privilege to be chosen as the Chairman of this historic occasion.
I believe that, a new chapter has been opened today in the annals of this great
country of ours. In times like these, we really need a deliverer to assist us through these trial times both politically, economically and socially.
In this political era, we are seeing a lot of things which aren’t helping our youth and the country as a whole. May I have the opportunity to give some thematic areas
we must assist. The first and the most important is our own media houses. It has been observed that, some of us aren’t going by our journalistic ethics. All that they know is to fabricate stories about people with pseudonyms and as soon as another hears it, he also picks without finding out the truth and it keeps on circulating, leaving pain and agony to families. How do we curb this? What saddens me most is, entertaining insults and vulgar languages on our airwaves. My own colleagues, some of our Presenters are also performing excellently and they need to be
I would therefore even propose that, this Organisation will collaborate with the Ghana Journalist Association to award Journalist and even propose a well conducted Media Personality Award with a Scholarship to encourage them to continue excelling in their various fields.
Also, let me use this opportunity to appeal to the GJA to institutionalize the
Association so that we can correct or sanction recalcitrant Media people who flouts the rules.
Another is the behavior of some of our Honorable politicians. Most of them conduct themselves excellently but the few ones who are even part of the youth brings that honorable house into disrepute. I also support those who condemned the act in parliament at the night of the election of the Speaker.
It is very unfortunate and it is not something that must be repeated.
I will also reiterate that, some activities of our Members of Parliament has
generated a bad behavior on our streets that causes accidents and a lot of inconveniences. That is, the use of sirens on our roads.
Fellow Ghanaians, you will
all bear with me that, it has now become a norm that, every V8 Vehicle has a siren
in it and as such doesn’t conform to traffic regulations. I want to state emphatically that, it is only emergency cars that are authorized to use sirens. In view of the abuse, even people doesn’t regard emergency vehicles anymore which is very detrimental and dangerous. I will plead that, our Honorable members must deploy means of curbing this situation for our own good.
I learnt, as part of the activities of this Federation, you are to support the World
economy in various forms. Since Networking is one of your priorities, I would advise that, you keep it strong to help Ghanaian Businesses to get more exposure and cooperation.
You also support World Peace and Security, so we would like to see more on that by affiliating to Peace and Security Institutions both in Ghana and abroad to
trumpet and coach the ordinary people to create a peaceful and congenial
environment for us to live in.
Moreover, I can’t mention all your activities but will also plead that, your Grants and offerings are seen and experienced in this country to enable us feel your real presence as a known and remarkable Federation.”He concluded.
