- Ken Ashibgey says he totally disagrees with President Mahama
- He says no media house distorted his 2016 campaign message
The outgoing Managing Director of Graphic Communications Group Limited (GCGL), Ken Ashigbey has lashed out at former President Mahama over his 2016 claims that the Ghanaian media wickedly worked against his administration.
According to the resigned MD, Mahama’s media cabal assertions were frivolous, insisting that the media was fair to the-then NDC administration.
Speaking to Bola Ray on Starr Chart, Ken Ashigbey rubbished the ex-President Mahama's allegations, maintaining that his accusations at the time was a bit strange and unfounded.
“I disagree with that, I’m not too sure how well they managed their media, but for me, I’ve seen that happening all the time. You’ll find out that the government in power will constantly castigate the media. In any competition that is what happens so I won’t begrudge him for calling it that, but I completely disagree with him.” Mr Ashigbey maintained.

Former President Mahams barely two months to the crucial election that eventually saw him being kicked him out of power, expressed disappointment over what he calls the control of Ghana’s media by a cabal.
According to him, some unseen hands took control of the Ghanaian media and blocked his message of transformation to reach the public.
He also asserted that the situation harmed his campaign and made it more difficult for people to know the truth and lies about his administration.
The former NDC leader in an interview with the Ovation Magazine was quoted to have said, “It is populism, a certain group has taken control of the media in Ghana and it makes it difficult for people to discern the truth. So as much as you are putting out the information, it is either being blocked or distorted”.
