The Editor of the Informer newspaper, Andy Kankam has said that he wouldn’t have hesitated as a member of late Nuamah’s family, to issue a fiat against beleaguered President of the Ghana Journalist Association(GJA), Roland Affail Monney preventing him from attending Nuamah’s funeral.

Kankam contends that comments made by the GJA President over the accident which involved members of the Presidential Press corps, were unfortunate and a betrayal to Journalists in the country.

“I’m scandalized by the dramatic u-turn of Affail Monney regarding the issue of the Presidential press corps accident”

Monney who had earlier called for a probe into the ghastly accident that involved his fellow journalists  in a recent interview has insisted that the vehicle members of the Presidential press corps traveled on in their trip from the Volta region was in good condition.

He added: The Presidency had a business relationship with the said vehicle rental company, through its transport officer, and this was not the first time doing business with them.

Mr. Nuamah, a journalist with the Ghanaian Times lost his life in a fatal accident involving members of the presidential press corps, who were returning from assignment in the Volta Region.

A number of the Presidential press corps also sustained various degrees of injuries, including two journalists from state-broadcaster Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, namely Pascaline Adadevoh of Radio Ghana and Napoleon Ato Kittoe of GTV. The others are Patrick Biddah of the Enquirer and William Gentu of Peace FM.
