The GPU has launched the Affiliates Support Program aimed at building the capacity of registered groups associated with the press union. It’s part of GPU’s Civil Society Fund of Denmark-funded project that was launched in June 2019.
Six member groups will be supported to formulate organisation policy, administration, finance, communication and advocacy.
The Gambia Press Union (GPU) on the 29th October 2021 elected a new board at its triennial congress held at the Paradise Suites Hotel.
Former GPU Vice President, Muhammed M.S. Bah, was elected as the new President after winning thirty-six out of the seventy-three votes.
Bah succeeds Sheriff Bojang Jnr, who served as President of the GPU from September 2018 to October 2021.
