Thirty years of experience in journalism

In an interview with YEN.com.gh, Mr Dogbevi also said a major factor that has kept him going as a journalist for over 30 years has been his desire to play a role in the service to humanity.

"My motivation for all these years has been the fact of journalism’s important role in ensuring a better society. By seeking accountability, social justice, the rule of law and for giving voice to the voiceless, he said."

He advised aspiring journalists not to be money-driven but rather strive to work for the good of the public.

"The advice I would give to young journalists is that they shouldn’t be driven by the desire to make money or fame. They should appreciate the opportunity journalism offers them to serve humanity by pursuing and seeking to establish the facts of every situation. They should be ethical, lawful and endeavour to always learn to deepen their knowledge and skills while they stick to the high standards of the profession."
