The Administrator of Smile Media Training Centre cum Morning Show Host of Tamale based North Star fm, Abubakari Sadiq Righteous has made a passionate appeal to media owners in Northern Ghana to seek for the services of professionally trained Journalists.
According to the former Communications Assistant of the Ministry of Gender, the inability of media owners to hire professionally trained journalists contributes largely to lack of professionalism on the airwaves in the region. He thus admonished radio presenters who have not had professional training to kindly go for one since according to him, “it’s not too late to empower and equip yourself with the right skills and ethics in media”.
Mr. Sadiq Righteous made this known in his address at the 2nd Graduation Ceremony of Smile Media Training Centre in Tamale. The graduation that witness 15 students from the school being ushered in to Journalism was on the theme; “Responsible Journalism; a tool to promoting peace and development in Northern Ghana”.
