President of Ghana Journalists Association(GJA) Roland Affail Monney has accused some media houses in the Country of contributing to high phenomenon of sexual immorality among children in the country.
According him “many children have become wayward, have become prostitutes not because their Parents are irresponsible but because of what they consume in the media”
The GJA President said this when speaking at the launch of the 2018 United Nation’s International Day of the Girl Child organized by Plan International Ghana at Akuapem- Nsutem in the Eastern region on Tuesday.
Mr. Afful Monney explained that the Ghanaian media is increasingly inundated with sexually explicit programs driving many teenage girls into whoredom.
The Country Director of Plan International Ghana, Solomon Tesfamariam said though in recent years, strides have been made in women and girls centered constitutions and legal frameworks and increase in girls enrollment in School, there are many “complex issues like child sex tourism, teenage pregnancies, rape, prostitution, female genital mutilation and gender-based violence are gaining recognition as barriers to both wellbeing and poverty reduction “
