In introducing the panel, Prince Charles Dickson from Nigeria, sets up the basic issue the IARJ members will be discussing. He asks, What happens when a political party favors one religion or a specific faith? … Does this lead to conflicts? Of course. … We also are looking at how journalists play roles as gate keepers and agenda setters.

Yes, journalists have a responsibility as watchdogs, the Fourth Estate, and this is not easy for us, says Nana Appiah Acquaye, based in Ghana. This is a very timely discussion, he adds, because there is currently a debate ongoing as to whether our country is a secular state or a religious state. Our constitution … failed to make that very clear.
