Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Information Minister designate has said he was a card bearing member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) but a professional journalist.

According to Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, he finds nothing wrong with journalists holding political party cards.

Oppong Nkrumah, who appeared before the appointments committee of Parliament Friday, disclosed that he was a card bearing member of the governing NPP throughout his day at Multimedia as a broadcaster and host of the Super Morning Show.

That, however, he said he did not allow his affiliation with the NPP muddle his professionalism.

“I did not train as a journalist but when I got on the job my employers were kind enough to subject me to a lot of training both locally and internationally.

“One of the things that I was trained with is professionalism. To stay on the fact and to stay in the middle very often regardless of what your personal sentiments are on a particular matter.

And I tried very hard to demonstrate that on my line of work when I was practicing as a journalist,” he told the committee in a response to a question posed to him by a member of the committee, Nii Lante Vanderpuye.

The Information Minister designate added: “I do know that today there are a lot of journalists out there who are members, some are card bearing of various political parties. That in itself is not bad.

“The test is how you are able to do your work and professionalism so that at the end of the day, the average viewer or listener will say that has been a fair job. It doesn’t seem to have pondered to any side.”

My nomination is a vote of confidence to young ones

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in thanking President Akufo-Addo for the honor done him said his elevation to be the substantive Information Minister is an indication of the confidence the President has in the youth.

“I think that my nomination is a vote of confidence in young people, that young person can have an opportunity to contribute their quota to our governance exercise,” Kojo Oppong Nkrumah added.
