The flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has patched up his differences with the Multimedia group following the “uncouth and unprofessional insults and unprintable words” recently hurled at him by one of their presenters called Nana Akua Acheampomaa Sarfo-Adu on Asempa FM.
In a social media post today, ex-President Mahama simply wrote “Accepted” in response to the Multimedia Group’s apology letter.
An angry NDC wrote a complaint to the Multimedia group to call their radio presenter to order in a letter dated today November 12, 2019, and signed by Sammy Gyamfi, the party’s National Communications Officer. Immediately on the same day, the Multimedia Group issued an official letter and the consequent response from the wronged flagbearer.
The NDC had expressed anger at the “dressing-down” of the flagbearer by the errant presenter. “The NDC is appalled and disgusted by the uncouth and unprofessional conduct of the said presenter. Given the mutual respect that has underlined our long-standing relationship with your station and the Multimedia Group as a whole, we deem it fit to communicate our displeasure to you,” the NDC complaint letter stated.
The opposition party went further to demand that an apology from the media conglomerate; punitive action against the said presenter and to remind the Multimedia Group that this is the umpteenth time the Multimedia Group has targeted the NDC.
The NDC believe the media organisation has some sort of vendetta to even out with it. However, their apology letter appears to acknowledge the concerns of the NDC and claim they have “taken all the internal measures necessary to prevent this unfortunate incident from recurring.”
