Media Entrepreneur Challenges Journalists To Stimulate Role In Society


Liberian Media Entrepreneur Titus Tokpah, has challenged mainstream Journalism to stimulate its role in Liberia’s governance process.

Mr. Tokpah says. the media must be sharp and spark public interest on issues that affect the country.

The Media Entrepreneur made the assertions Monday, 12 April when he addressed students of the Muslim Congress High School in Monrovia on the “Role Of The Media In Society”.

According to a release, Tokpah who is also Founder/Executive Director of the privately owned MediaAid Foundation reminded Journalists on their responsibility to report in line with basic ethics of journalism.

MediaAid quotes its Executive Director as also admonishing young people to invest in their ‘Personal Development’ for a better future.

Tokpah told the Muslim students that “the future is determined from present efforts”, as such, they should explore by following a better path of life.

The event witnessed the official launch of the Muslim Congress High School Press Club, where good number of the students are desirous of pursuing Journalism.

The MediaAid boss then offered tuition waivers for two (2) 12th graders: male and female to study at the Peter Quaqua School of Journalism-PQSJ upon their graduation later this year.
