GHANAIAN RADIO STATIONS IN LONDON COLLECT BRIBES


By Ivan Baiden


The Ghanaians United Association wishes to appeal to Ghanaian radio stations and radio personalities in the UK to stop collecting monies from political parties this deplorable act undermines press freedom and objective news reporting .We are appealing to these radio stations to stop this filthy and dishonest practice .We have decided to publish the names of the following Radio stations for them to stop this practice .

1. Voice of Africa Radio-receives regular money from the National Democratic Congress. Its owner Mr Space Clottey is a sympathaiser of the NDC and arranges fundraising events for them.

2. Naspa Radio-Collects monies from NPP to do Propaganda against the NDC-THE NUMBER ONE NPP STATION.

3. DJ Vandyck and Hot FM- Mr Vandyck is a secret fundraiser for the NDC and currently is alleged to be on payroll of the Ghanaian National Security. He receives 2000 dollars every month. He has been told to use his station Hot fm to frustrate other political parties and support the promotion of NDC to the Ghanaian community.

4. Radio Focus-Former Morning Show Host Ernest Owusu Bempah was sponsored by Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings and Raymond Archer to do Propaganda for NDC . His replacement DJ Mogabe and his host Sankfa Tete Danso were approached by NDC officials at the castle to promote the Interest of NDC. They now receive 1200 dollars a month.

5. Devine Radio-Although there is no evidence to suggest they are on anybody's payroll, the NDC and NPP have approached the DJs with money and other financial gifts to hijack the stations Agenda

6. GFM Radio-A radio station alleged to be sponsored by John Mahama, the Vice President of Ghana with regular amounts of 1000 dollars a month.

We do this in good faith and hope that will serve as a deterrent to those who are greedy, and undermine our democracy by collecting money to restrict press freedom.

Thank You

TOTAL DISGRACE

it is a big shame if it is true, because they supose to know better

NDC will still be booted out i

Ivan thank you for bringing this out. I thought it was only the media houses in Ghana and semi-illiterates like Bobie of Asempa FM and his ugly friend Alhaji Bature who have openly and collaboratively been instigating and taking part in abusing Nana Addo and other NPP members on the program “εko sii sεn” to get them on the NDCs pay roll. Ghanaians have however learnt their lesson; come 2012.

Shame!! Shame!

It is very shameful on your their part to use the stations to do dirty politics.Instead of reporting the corruptions going on our country you're enriching yourself with propaganda.
We the listeners will stop listening to your shows.
We will twitt among ourselves and destroy the station if such acts do not cease. Greedy bastards

Radio stations accepting bribe

If you have any evidence, record the said programmes, add the evidence and send a formal complaint to the regulatory body, OFCOM. If enough complaints are sent, they could lose their licence if they have one. If they do not have a licence, they could be taken off the air permanently!!!

CORRUPT GHANAIAN RADIO STATION

Space and VOA, if this allegation is true, remember OFCOM will come after you. Please you are my friend, so be careful.

NOTTHING SURPRISES ME

It is very disappointing to read these revelations and or allegations.All I have to say is that it is better to stay in the same tent with your enemies,d oing the same thing than they staying in a different and doing the same thing.Sometimes it it safer to play in the enemy's backyard to be on the safe side.
