The Upper East Regional Executive of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has announced plans to organise a lecture to commemorate this year’s World Press Freedom Day. The event, which will also mark the 30th anniversary since the UN General Assembly proclaimed an international day for press freedom, will be hosted by the GJA – Upper East Region Branch. It is slated for Wednesday, May 3, 2023. 

The lecture will be delivered by the Upper East Regional Supervising High Court Judge, Justice Charles Adjei Wilson. He will speak on the theme for this year’s celebration, which is “Shaping a Future of Rights: Freedom of Expression as a Driver for All Other Human Rights towards Ghana’s Development.” Justice Wilson is a highly respected legal expert and is expected to provide insightful perspectives on the importance of press freedom in Ghana’s development agenda.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Regional Secretary of GJA, Albert Sore and copied to this website.

The Upper East Region Branch of the GJA welcomes all journalists, media practitioners, civil society organisations, government officials, and members of the general public to attend the presentation. The event would serve as a forum for conversations and reflections on Ghana’s press freedom, as well as the role of the media in advancing human rights and national development.

The talk, according to the GJA – Upper East Region Branch, is in keeping with the organisation’s purpose of championing media freedom and promoting ethical journalism practices. The section is dedicated to fostering openness and accountability in the media business, as well as advocating for the rights of journalists and media practitioners.

The GJA – Upper East Region Branch believes that the lecture will provide a unique opportunity for journalists to learn from legal experts and engage in critical discussions on the challenges and opportunities for media freedom in Ghana.
