Business News of Thursday, 16 May 2019Source: citibusinessnews.comRegistrar General wins case against journalist at NMCRegistrar General, Jemima OwareThe National Media Commission (NMC) has directed an investigative journalist and Editor of the Awake newspaper, Emmanuel Efo Kosi Senyo to retract and apologise to the Registrar General, Jemima Oware following his publication of a story which allegedly cited the Registrar General of colluding in the allocation of dividends to some beneficiaries of a Will. The commission, in a statement signed by its Chairman, Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh ruled that the series of publications by the journalist have needlessly and baselessly brought the office of the Registrar General into disrepute. Again, that Mr. Kosi Senyo should remove the photograph of the Registrar General from the website and any other social media platform. Though the journalist in question had written to the Registrar General’s Department to request for her side of the story, he was not given any response which the NMC deems as fair. However, the media regulating body maintains that the failure by Mr. Senyo to substantiate the claims leveled against the Registrar General, informed the basis for the ruling.
