Ghana News Agency

The Ghana News Agency (GNA) is the body charged with the core mandate of collection, processing and dissemination of news internally and externally with emphasis on truthful and unbiased stories about Ghana and beyond.

It was established on March 5, 1957. i.e. on the eve of Ghana’s independence and charged with the “dissemination of truthful and unbiased news”. It was the first news agency to be established in Ghana and in Sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communication policy that sought to harness the information arm of the state in order to build a viable, united and cohesive nation.

It has therefore been operating in a unique role of mobilizing the citizens for nation building, economic and social development as well as national unity and integration. The Ghana News Agency essentially acts as a central news collection agent of the state which gathers news from the various regions and districts in the country. It is instrumental in carrying government messages, policies, plans and programmes to the people including those in the remotest areas of the country. GNA’s operations also give a significant voice to the vast majority of citizens in rural areas, thereby promoting good governance and reducing the urban bias of news reportage.

The Ghana News Agency has offices in all the regional and some district capitals, and also employs the services of stringers in many towns and villages across the country. The Agency currently has over 250 permanent employees comprising management staff, journalists, secretarial staff, computer technicians, drivers, auto mechanics etc.

Our Vision

GNA strive to be the preferred source of news and information on Ghana, Africa and the World.
