Banjul, The Gambia (TNBES) In a rather astonishing moment, the Young Journalists Association of The Gambia (YJAG) could not help but be appreciative when lawyer Edu Gomez announced that he is pledging D10, 000 to YJAG at the end of a one-day Training Programme on Media Laws for Young Journalists.
“I hereby pledge the sum of D10, 000 to the Young Journalists Association,” Lawyer Gomez said.
Lawyer Gomez made the pledge at the time of delivering the official closing remarks at the Joint Officers Mess in Kotu.
“I wish to express a deep sense of gratitude to be associated with this great initiative,” Gomez said while urging young journalists to remain focused and have a tenancy of purpose in order to become what they want to be.
He noted that for the association to remain strong there is the need for sacrifices as in payments of dues by members in order to be financially functional.
The Training brought together 40 young journalists under the theme: “Understanding Media Laws in The Gambia.” VOL:2 ISSN:106
