Sunyani, Sept. 12, GNA – The Brong-Ahafo
Regional Communications Directorate of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) on
Wednesday announced it had boycotted all media and political engagements on
Angel FM, a Sunyani-based radio station. 

This extreme action, according to party
officials has been necessitated by what they described as “unprofessional and
open biases targeted at the NPP radio panelists and serial callers by the radio
station”, which is a subsidiary of the Angel Group of Companies. 

A statement issued by the Directorate in
Sunyani, and signed by Mr. Seth Asare-Bediako, the Communication Director and
copied to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) expressed disappointment with the “gross
disrespect and deliberate maligning of government officials and the entire NPP
party structure in the region” by the station. 

“Arbitrary and dictatorial tendencies
exhibited by the morning show host and production crew of the Angel FM in the
morning political show is unprofessional and unethical”, it stated. 

“Due to these and other reasons, the
Directorate has directed all NPP officers, government appointees, various
spokespersons, radio and TV communication team members, and our serial callers
to cease media and political engagements on Angel 92.3 FM with immediate
effect”, it added. 

The statement, however, stressed the
Directorate and the Party’s readiness to work with all media houses who give a
fair and balanced platform to all political parties in the region and beyond.
