Graphic Communication Group Limited will lose one very hardworking journalist Mabel Aku Baneseh who has tendered her resignation letter.

The 2013 GJA journalist of the year said in a post on Facebook that her decision was to allow her among many things concentrate on her family and charity works.

I tendered in my resignation letter on Tuesday, October 15, 2019 after 18 years of dedicated service to the Graphic Communications Group Limited (GCGL); 15 years of which has been in permanent employment. I did my national service at the GCGL and have gone nowhere ever since. I gave a month’s notice so my last day at GCGL as an official employee will be November 15, 2019.

My plans are many but in the interim, I will concentrate on my family, my personal wellbeing, private consultancy services, my second book and charity work.

My decision to resign comes after six years of planning. I simply do not want to turn 60 at GCGL and I hope my decision will be respected by some private media houses, who take delight in feeding on what happens at the GCGL. In fact, I had no option but to issue this statement after an editor of a private media outlet sent me a message at exactly 12:08 am asking “you have resigned from Daily Graphic?” I would have broken this news on November 16, 2019 but the message meant I have to act before stories are made up.

I would please entreat my colleague journalists to respect my decision and desist from making up theories that do not exist. I will continue to have a good relationship with the GCGL. It will always be my first love in employment.

Thank you.


She will cease to be a GCGL on November 15 2019. Family, close friends and colleague workers are wishing her will in her next endeavors.
