GoL Wants Media Continue Professionalism  

By Catherine B. Nyenkan

MONROVIA, February 13 (LINA) - The Government of Liberia has called on the broadcast community to continue the good work of balance reporting and professionalism as it performs reportorial duties.

The government also wants radio entities not to allow their networks to be used by individual desiring to spread hate messages and those who seek to engage in actions aimed at potentially undermining the peace of the society, especially as Liberia moves toward the crucial General and Presidential Elections.

The Ministry of Information, Cultural Affairs and Tourism (MICAT), on behalf of the government in a message on Monday marking the celebration of World Radio Day, said radio is an essential tool for the promotion and strengthening of democracy, peace and reconciliation.

World Radio Day is an annual United Nations event that promotes the importance of radio in communicating information worldwide.

The Ministry said, radio is the medium that fosters the promotion of culture, advances positive societal behavior and helps enhance security.

Meanwhile, MICAT has expressed gratitude to the broadcast community for its priceless contribution to the nation during the difficult period of the Ebola crisis which claimed the lives of thousands of Liberians and foreign residents.

The Ministry also thanked the broadcast community for promoting an environment of free expression, reporting calm, helping to keep communities secure and allowing the use of their platform to communicate information to relevant public safety agencies in times of disaster.
