The media is regarded as the fourth estate of the realm and journalists are always expected to report on issues and also hold governments accountable. One of the major qualities of a good journalist is charisma and honesty.
Afia Pokua, popularly known as Vim lady is one of few journalists who is greatly admired for being outspoken on national issues and other important matters.
Afia Pokua hosted the "Egyaso Gyaso” show on Okay FM today, October 25, 2021, and criticized the two major political parties in the countries for playing politics with almost every policy since the fourth Republican dispensation. She admonished the youth of Ghana to stop following the two major political parties in the country blindly. She raised alarm on the high rate of unemployment in the country and implored leadership to initiate efforts to create sustainable employment.
" It is very sad how almost everything is politicized in the country. Leadership has failed the youth of this country over the years. NDC and NPP have failed this country over the years. What is even worrying is how the youth of this country has followed both political parties blindly. The youth of this country should reason up and ensure that the right things are done to bring development to this country" she said.
Afia Poku further reiterated that the leadership of this country must begin to take the people seriously and do whatever they promise. She also warned that the unemployment rate poses a high-security risk and it must be tackled as soon as possible.
