Despite Company Limited, the owners of Twi-speaking Peace FM had is all remorse as it begs the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to rescind its decision not to feature on the radio station’s flagship morning show, Kokrokoo hosted by Kwame Sefa-Kayi.
The bad blood between the main opposition party and Peace FM stemmed from complaints by NDC communicators that the radio station was biased against them and was giving favours to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
In a widely circulating twitter message, Sammy Gyamfi described Peace FM’s Kokrokoo programme as “overhyped” and that the NDC feel no qualms in refusing to appear on the show which they had boycotted in May 2020.
“For the records, the NDC has never and will never beg to appear on Peace FM’s Kookrokoo. The Comm. Bureau that I lead, does not intend to ever return to that show. The NDC brand is far greater than that overhyped platform. Our boycott still stands. Ignore the lies. #BaakoLied,” Sammy Gyamfi wrote on twitter on September 19, 2020.
However, in a desperate move to quell the impasse, Whatsup News has intercepted a letter written to the NDC today, September 23, 2020, begging the party to return as a permanent panellist on Peace FM.
“..In recent times, there has been a misunderstanding between us and the NDC in relation to the panelling of the discussion of the Kokrokoo show. Management of Despite Media acknowledges responsibility for whatever misunderstanding that has arisen between us and the NDC in recent times,” the Despite Company said in admission to NDC’s accusations.
The letter signed by the Managing Director of Despite then went ahead to extend the olive branch to the NDC, saying: “We, therefore, urge the NDC to let sleeping dogs lie and allow harmony to reign and return to the Kokrokoo show. As agents and stakeholders of development, we may agree to disagree all for the sake of Ghana our motherland.”
