During a meeting with the Chief of Defence Staff in Accra, The GJA President Albert Dwumfour stated, “The military has petitioned GJA on some issues relating to Onua FM/TV, and we, the GJA, per the constitution of the association, chapters 40, 41 to 42, gives us the authority to refer such petitions to our ethics and disciplinary council.”
