Mass Communication Student Selected for Fact-Checking Project in Ghana

Written by

Lindsey Amuah, a semester six student in the mass communication and journalism department has been selected to take part in the first ever Dubawa campus-based fact-checking project in Ghana.

Dubawa’s Campus Fact-checking Project is inspired by the need to address some of the ethical lapses identified in journalism practice by offering students in tertiary schools aspiring to take up roles in the ecosystem, the opportunity to acquire real-world experience in the journalism profession through verification and fact-checking. 

The maiden campus project also seeks to extend the culture of truth-telling in  the information ecosystem to tertiary institutions by training and equipping journalism students with the necessary skills to contribute to fact-checking and promote a culture of truth and accuracy in public discourse

Commenting on her selection to the project, Lindsey was full of praise for the department for such a great opportunity to gain hands-on experience in fact-checking and by extension, journalism.

‘ I’m so elated and I am committed to putting my best to make my department and the school proud’, she said.
