It was a collaborative workshop by 4-H Ghana, an international non-governmental organisation into agriculture, governance and health and the Birim Central Municipal Assembly.

Mr Kofi Adjei-Amparbeng, the Programmes Director of 4-H Ghana, urged journalists to be factual in their reportage and desist from maligning people.

He said media practitioners shaped public opinion and influenced policies and, therefore, there was the need for them to abide by their Code of Ethics to avoid doubts and promote professionalism.

Mr Frank Odei Anim, a member of the Eastern Regional Media Network on Social Accountability, urged the participants to avoid prejudices in their reportage and do away with mistrust, hearsay and unsubstantiated information.

SPEFA has projects ongoing in some selected districts in the Eastern Region, including Birim Central, being financed by the Government.

As part of the workshop, Mr Benard Ostabu of the Works Department and Mr George Agyeman of the Planning Unit of the Birim Central Municipal Assembly led the journalists to inspect some of the projects.

These include the construction of Agona Osafo Marfo road, a 900-metre paved walkway, a three-seater water closet toilet and urinal at Akim Oda and a 200-bed three-unit storey hostel.
