Meanwhile, the President of Ghana Journalists’ Association, Roland Affail Monney, says it is right call being made by the Auditor-General for journalists to be a reward in the fight against corruption.
Mr. Monney explains it will help produce more investigative media practitioners for the country.
The Executive Director of Ghana Integrity Initiative, Linda Ofori-Kwaafo, says the media in terms of fighting corruption is encouraging but some journalists back-biting their colleagues and this is affecting the fight against the canker.
