Mr William Jalulah, the newly elected Upper East Regional Chairman of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has reiterated commitment to work to make the Association attractive to media practitioners in the region.

This, he said, would motivate journalists in the region to join the Association in accordance with the Constitution to make it vibrant and serve its mandate as the fourth estate of the realm.

Mr Jalulah who is also the General Manager of A1 Radio, a Bolgatanga based radio station made these known after Justice Charles Adjei Wilson, Upper East Regional Supervising High Court Judge swore in the newly Regional executives of the Association into office.

The others are; Mrs Sandra Fatima Anafu-Astanga, Editor with the Ghana News Agency, Vice Chairperson, Mr Albert Sore, Regional Correspondent of Joynews, Secretary and Joshua Asaah of A1 Radio, Treasurer.

They were sworn into office alongside four co-opted members including Mr Samuel Akapule of the Bolgatanga Technical University, Osman Muntawakilu of the Ghana Broadcasting Cooperation, Ebo Bruce Quansah of the Daily Guide and Albert Azongo of Dreamzfm.

Mr Jalulah observed that interest of journalists in the region to join the Association which was a major professional body of the fraternity was low and attributed the phenomenon to the unattractiveness of the Association and its works.

He pledged to collaborate with the rest of the executives and major stakeholders to ensure that a Regional office for the Association was established to facilitate discussions and members’ participation in running the affairs of the Association.

“We are looking at working to make the Association attractive to journalists who are not members to join and we will be doing this by following the Constitution to ensure that those who are qualified to be members and express interest are given the opportunity.

“We will also work to have an office to facilitate our administrative works,” he said.

He expressed gratitude to members in the region for the confidence reposed in him and the other executives to lead the Association and appealed for cooperation and support to yield the needed results.

He said, “We also want to thank the past executives for holding the Association till date and when the need arises for us to tap into their experience for proper running of the Association we will do that”.
