Government Welcmes Quaqua’s WAJA Election
By Richard Stephens

MONROVIA, May 1(LINA) -The Liberian Government has welcomed the recent election of former Press Union of Liberia (PUL) president Peter Quaqua, as president of the West African Journalists Association (WAJA).

Speaking at the Ministry of Information regular weekly press briefing Thursday, Acting Information Minister Atty. Isaac W. Jackson, said the election of Mr. Quaqua demonstrates that Liberian Journalists are recognized outside of their country, noting that this is “a pride” for Liberia.

Minister Jackson said he was optimistic that while serving at WAJA, Quaqua would portray a positive image of his country and exude those virtues that would help to promote Liberia and encourage investments.

He said Mr. Quaqua has a challenge to ensure that the ethics of journalism is realized across the sub-region, noting that this would boost Liberia’s international standing.

Mr. Peter Quaqua was recently elected as WAJA president for a two-year term.
