Popular on-air personality and journalist, Afia Pokua, aka Vim Lady says she won’t cover the 2024 elections as a precautionary measure.
Speaking to Samsom Lardy Anyenini on JoyNews analysis programme, Newsfile on Saturday, the high profile media personality who is now with Despite Media Group after switching camp from rivals Multimedia Group, said her decision is solely based on security reasons after she suffered teo separate attacks in the past.
“I have been a victim of these attacks twice under the New Patriotic Party (NPP),” she said.
She added that during this peak period, in cases of an attack, “there is no one to you, not even the Ghana Journalist Association.
“… In the 2020 election, I had to flee the county for a month and returned later when the coast was clear. Unfortunately, this was not captured in the report; other journalists were attacked,” she disclosed.
Sadly, Vim lady revealed her intention of exiting the media landscape due to the attacks the journalists face in the line of duty.
“We can no longer continue and I am not the only one. We have had several media people who are exiting the industry and moving into Public Relations, moving into Corporate Communications because it is safer, no attacks emotionally and physically,” he said.
