VP Boakai Says Media ‘Indispensable Partner’

MONROVIA, June 24 (LINA) - Vice President Joseph N. Boakai has noted the many difficulties media executives and journalists undergo to get the public informed on critical national developments.

He cited the cost associated with operating generators, payment of salaries, maintenance expenses and rent, but observed that “with time the situation could improve if we all work together to improve the economy and move Liberia to the next level of development.”

He noted that the media enlightens the people on crucial issues and set the agenda for discussion on matters that affect society.

Vice President Boakai was speaking Wednesday on Capitol Hill when he received a four-man delegation from the Media Aid Foundation, an organization devoted to training journalists, research, consultancy, advocacy, public relations and other media-related activities.

 “We are aware of the difficulties journalists go through, but with time the situation will improve,” VP Boakai stressed.

He encouraged the media to move out to the countryside and do documentaries because the nation is endowed with a rich cultural heritage and that by doing so sponsorship could come from local or international partners.

He lamented that community radio stations that were set up to provide education, information and air programs on agriculture, health and to promote rural development, now devote less time to these development programs.
