President Adama Barrow has asked the country’s journalists to be neutral – as he reacts to the work they are doing.

“You’re very important in our society. You give us news, you give us independent news, correct news. You see if you give correct news, you go home you sleep. If you’re not doing that, know that you’re affecting your career in the future,” the president told reporters on Tuesday at Ndemban Clinic.

He added: “That’s why people are winning awards. Why? [It’s] because of the professionalism. You need to be very very neutral, be very very independent, report correct news.”
