An award-winning Ghanaian investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has revealed that if one looks at the list of members in good standing with the Ghana Journalist Association (GJA), he is not one of them.
Manasseh Azure Awuni made this statement as a panelist on 'THE KEYPOINTS' program on TV3 today, 15th May 2021, when he gave his opinion on the unionization of the GJA.
According to Manasseh, if we have a union and the leadership Of that union is too weak or either compromised, it is better we don't have a union.
"I used to be a member of the GJA, but it got to a time, I realized that the GJA wasn't working in the interest of the media so, if you look at the list of the GJA members in good standing, I am not one of them." - he said
He added that he won't be a member of the GJA until such a time that he would begin to see that the association working for the welfare of journalists in Ghana is one that he would be proud of.
