The NDC warned all its communicators and officers to desist from having anything to do with the station.
“All NDC communicators, officials, members of Parliament and Ex-appointees are advised to abstain from appearing on Asaase Radio (99.5), which is owned by the nephew and chief henchman of President Akufo Addo, Gabby Otchere Darko.” He indicated.
“The party has taken a decision to abstain from appearing on this station given how Radio Gold and other Pro-NDC stations have been shut down by the vindictive and intolerant Akufo Addo government.”He added.
“All NDC members are advised to decline invitations and interviews from this station (Asaase Radio). We are aware of the evil agenda of the owners and promoters of the station against the NDC. Let’s not lend our voices, image and moral support to this station. Let’s not shoot ourselves in the foot by giving them the fake neutrality and credibility they are desperately seeking.”
Ghana’s capital currently has some 54 radio stations spread across commercial, community, campus and foreign stations (RFI, VOA and BBC). Of the number, Radio Gold (90.5) and Montie (100.1) are off air for regulatory reasons.
