The Minister-designate for Information, Mrs Fatimatu Abubakar, has affirmed her commitment to continuing the implementation of the innovative media support programmes that her predecessor, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah initiated.

In an interview on the AM Show on Joy TV, Mrs Abubakar noted that she would continue to work on various initiatives, such as the Coordinated Mechanism on the Safety of Journalists and the Media Capacity Enhancement Programme.

She stated, “I am not going to reinvent the wheel, especially some of the innovative media support programmes that Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah initiated like the Coordinated Mechanism on Safety of Journalists and Media Capacity Enhancement Programme and other campaigns that we started at the Ministry. They are projects that I believe I should renew the energy and make sure we see to the continued implementation of those.”

She disclosed that the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, had personally communicated with her his expectations of the office.

 “By this nomination, the President of the Republic has personally communicated to me his expectations of the office,’’ she noted.

Mrs Abubakar added that as a Minister-designate, she is expected to give direction and guidance as to how she would assist the various Ministries, Department and Agencies of the government to effectively communicate projects and policies.

She said her experience as a communicator at the Jubilee House and Deputy Minister for Information has equipped her enough to handle her position excellently.

 Mrs Fatimatu Abubakar, before her appointment, served as a Deputy Minister for Information from 2021 till her nomination as Minister for Information on February 14, 2024.
