The Ghana Journalist Association (GJA) has received two vehicles from Ideal Financial Services (IFS) to be given out at the 21st GJA Awards Night.
The cars, a Hyundai Creta Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) and a Hyundai i10 Grand will be awarded to the 2015 Journalist of the Year and the Best Financial Reporter respectively.
Making the presentation to the National Executives of the GJA in Accra on Thursday, Chief Executive Officer of Ideal Financial Services and Ideal Groupe, Dr Nii Kortei Dzani, said it was part of his outfit’s corporate social responsibility.
He indicated that the gesture was to redeem the promise his company made last year to the Association having realised the need to motivate journalists to give off their best.
He noted that some journalists lack the technical know-how in financial reporting.
That, he stressed, informed his outfit’s decision to institute Kotei Dzani Award for the Best Business Reporting.
He added that inaccuracies in financial reporting can hurt the economy hence the best reporters in financial reporting with the nation at heart will help.
Receiving the keys to the cars on behalf of the Association, President of GJA, Mr Affail Monney, noted that the gesture was unprecedented in the history of GJA.
He thanked Groupe Ideal for the support and expressed the hope that it will motivate the winners for that category to do more, Today reported.
The ceremony is slated for Banquet Hall of the State House on Saturday, August 20.
