Associated Somali Journalists (ASOJ) is welcoming on Monday the decision in which the government’s minister of information disbanded the formation of the National Media Council as positive step towards democracy..

“We are thanking the information minister Farhan Ali for his move to stop the so-called Media Council from exploiting the journalists’ name and we see that there is now a window of chance for all journalists to form a new Council of Media that can really represent themselves,” said Dahir Abdule Alasow, the chairman of ASOJ.


Alasow pointed out that the current government is now on the exact track to choose right from wrong as it kicked out those use the nation for their particular interest.

He called for all journalists in and outside of Somalia to collectively support the minister’s decision and be prepared for independently shaping an effective media council as every journalist has the right to stand for election of the council’s leadership.

“The National Media Council is a name among all the journalists but it is not something can be taken in one’s pocket and also given recognition by the neighboring countries like Djibouti,” Alasow added.
