The vice president of Private Newspaper Publishers Association of Ghana, David Tamakloe has hinted that the low patronage of Newspapers especially the private ones is due to lack of specialisation in the media landscape.
According to him, there should be a special training in some specialize areas of our National life’s like economics, banking and finance, health, Education, Oil and Gas etc because research shows that lack of specialisation in the media today is one of the factors responsible for low patronage of Newspapers.
He said this during the launching of media capacity enhancement programme at MOI.
Tamakloe commended Ministry of information and other media stakeholders for bringing up this initiative and advised the media personnel to desist from needless sensationalism that bring caos in the country but should abide by the ethics of the journalism profession.
Adding that, President of the Ghana Journalist Association, Affail Monney indicated that this programe has come at the right time to meet the crutial needs in the media in which media organizations like GIBA, GJA and others are supposed to regularly capacitate their members but are financially disabled to carry out this task.
Nevertheless, GJA is doing it part for their members to meet the expectation of the media consuming public.
