We will not partake in any political show with Angel Media Group - NDC Brong Ahafo Region

The Communications Team of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Brong Ahafo Region has opined that for the bias and unfair treatment given to the party in the area, the party has boycotted all political programmes with Angel Media Group.

This extreme action, according to party officials has been necessitated by what they described as “the Angel media house has become an appendage of the NPP and compromising upon their competence and professionalism for the interest of the NPP and not the collective interest and development of our Region".

In a statement issued by party's communications team and copied to GhanaWeb indicated that "the NDC has been able to contain one Malik Adjei who was the Regional Communication Director of NPP in Brong Ahafo Region for some years now and till date continues to host Angel in the Morning on Angel TV with one Kwamena Sam Biney as a co-host".

The statement accused "It must be noted that, the neutrality and fairness of media coverage is key in our democratic dispensation. The NPP cannot and must not decide who sits as morning show host for the media as it is happening with the Angel Media Group".

The statement emphasized that the party would not be working with this Media Group until their concerns are address.

"We must state that, until the media house takes steps to address our concerns, none of our party communicators and officers will partake in any of their shows".

Below is the full statement
NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS
BRONG AHAFO REGIONAL SECRETARIAT
BRONG AHAFO NDC BOYCOTTS ANGEL MEDIA GROUP IN BRONG AHAFO

The communication directorate of the great NDC party in the Brong-Ahafo Region has had to take such a painful but necessary decision to boycott all programs with the Angel media group in Brong Ahafo namely: Angel FM, K.FM, Cheers F.M and any other affiliated stations in the Brong Ahafo Region.

This decision is necessary because it is clear that, the Angel media house has become an appendage of the NPP and compromising upon their competence and professionalism for the interest of the NPP and not the collective interest and development of our Region.

What is interesting and very scandalous is the fact that, the NDC has been able to contain one Malik Adjei who was the Regional Communication Director of NPP in Brong Ahafo Region for some years now and till date continues to host Angel in the Morning on Angel TV with one Kwamena Sam Biney as a co-host.

Even today, Thursday, 13th September, 2018 he (Adjei Malik, former Regional Communication Director of NPP) hosted the morning show on Angel TV. Angel Media, to the best of our knowledge, is rather being bias towards the NDC than what they are seeking to portray.

It must be noted that, the neutrality and fairness of media coverage is key in our democratic

dispensation. The NPP cannot and must not decide who sits as morning show host for the media as it is happening with the Angel Media Group.

Undoubtedly, this is an attempt to prevent the NDC from exposing their super-incompetence which they have demonstrated in office. The NPP has woefully failed to deliver on their promises of which the exchange rate is exposing the weak fundamentals of our ailing economy, the poorly implemented free SHS, persistent rise in the prices of goods and open corruption.

The NDC, as a key stakeholder in the development of our Region and country, is ever ready to work with other media houses that show neutrality, professionalism and competence as we have done over the years.

We must state that, until the media house takes steps to address our concerns, none of our party communicators and officers will partake in any of their shows.

Thank you and God save us from the hands of this insensitive and super-incompetent NPP

government.
Signed!
