Information Ministry Urges Media To Register

By Ballah Kollie

MONROVIA, April 10 (LINA) - The Ministry of Information is encouraging media houses to undergo the annual registration with the ministry or face suspension the operations.

Speaking Thursday at the ministry’s regular weekly press briefing, Acting Minister Isaac W. Jackson said every media institution operating in the country is required to register annually with the ministry, something, he said, is yet to be fulfilled by many media institutions.

He emphasized that unless media institutions update their operational licenses, they would be operating illegally and would therefore face suspension.

The Deputy Information Minister has, meanwhile, stressed the need for the intervention of the Press Union of Liberia (PUL) to ensure full compliance by all media institutions.

Meanwhile, Minister Jackson is urging Liberians to take advantage of the “Ebola Half Hour” broadcast on several radio stations in the country to access updates on the disease.

He said with the outbreak of the deadly virus in the country, it was necessary for citizens to take precautions that will help reduce the spread of the virus.

Ebola Half Hour educates Liberians on precautionary measures against contracting the disease, as well as provides update on the virus in Liberia.
