About 14 prominent civil society organizations working to advance the implementation of the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance (ACDEG) have jointly announced an award scheme for African journalists whose reports advance the course of the Charter, according to a statement by the coalition.

 

The award is an initiative aimed at recognizing and honoring African journalists who have been promoting the course of the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance (ACDEG) through excellent journalistic pieces.

“We hope that the Awards will also inspire more journalists on the continent on reporting issues that advance good governance, democratic practices and peaceful elections on the continent as espoused by ACDEG,” says a statement by Sulemana Braimah, executive director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), on behalf of the coalition.

According to the statement, “An awards ceremony to honor African journalists whose works over the last two years have advanced the spirit and letter of the ACDEG will be hosted by the MFWA in Accra on October 19, 2019 during this year’s West Africa Media Excellence Conference and Awards (WAMECA 2019).”
