YEN.com.gh has found out that the National Democratic Congress has boycotted Accra Based Radio station, Peace (104.3) FM’s morning show (Kookrokoo)

The host of Peace FM ‘Kokrokoo’ show, Kwami Sefa Kayi revealed this in response to a comment posed by a listener on his Wednesday, May 6, 2020.

Chairman General indicated that the NDC has refused to appear on his platform because he insists that the former NDC Central regional chairman, Allotey Jacobs remains part of his Wednesday panel.

In a statement issued by the NDC, announcing their boycott effective Wednesday, May 6, 2020, they said the decision has been occasioned by the unfair paneling system on the program.

"Specifically, the reason for this boycott has to do with the unreasonable decision of the Producers and Host of the program to permanently reserve one (1) of the two (2) slots the party has traditionally had on Wednesdays on the show to Mr. Allotey Jacobs, who is often introduced by the host of the program as a “Social Commentator with strong leanings to the NDC”, ostensibly to spite the NDC.

According to the statement issued by Sammy Gyamfi, efforts to get the Producers and Host of the program to give a fair representation on the show over the past eight (8) months have proven futile, as the party continues to be treated with utmost contempt.

Sammy Gyamfi noted that no member of the party would be making appearances on Peace FM until the issue at hand is addressed.

The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, in a statement, has asked Ghanaians to ignore a purported letter capturing names of some persons.
