Antwi-Danso: Ghanaian media must retune itself

The international relations and security expert said the Ghanaian media must help to nurture country’s young democracy

Dr Vladimir Antwi-Danso, an international relations expert has said the media in Ghana must retune itself and guard against creating insecurity in the country.

Dr Antwi-Danso said the media must show its usefulness to society by providing good education, information and entertainment.

Speaking with Kent Mensah on Sunday Night, he said “The media in Ghana generally must retune itself. We must understand the national terrain, the international horizon where security is concern…the media has always and will always be a variable in creating insecurity all over the world; the media is an indispensable variable so the way we talk and allow the media structure to be used for creating insecurity we must be very careful.

Dr Antwi-Danso said, “The media men themselves under the guise of media freedom also create insecurity… There was a time I was vehemently against what was happening in the country…I believe that the media must show their temerity and their usefulness to society by giving us good education, information and entertainment.

“But some of you [media] just believe anything goes and you don’t care and unfortunately when any media person is arrested then you want the whole to stop…the Ghanaian media must help our democracy to grow; when it is going bad say it but say it in such a way that it will remind us of where we are going rather than helping us truncate the freedoms we are having…”
