Despite group of companies, managers of Accra based UTV, Peace FM, Okay FM and Neat FM , have asked the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to rescind its decision to boycott Neat FM and Okay FM.

NPP on Sunday accused the two stations of  discussing NPP matters with "negative slant" and urged executives, communications officers and members to desist from speaking or patronizing the stations political programs with immediate effect.

A statement signed and released by Deputy Director of Communications, Anthony Abayifaa Karbo, explained that programmes on the two stations hosted by Kwame Nkrumah Tikesie and Adakabre Frimpong Manso respectively, have in recent months developed a format to “consistently discuss all matters of the NPP with a negative slant."

But Despite Group of Companies in a statement asked NPP to review its position, adding that, "as a company, we stand to be neutral and do not in any way manipulate our audience when we offer them our platform".

"Since we commenced operations in the media industry, we have tried as a station to maintain our neutrality regardless of the political heat in the country at any given time. We do not intend nor have thought of creating a politically biased station in Ghana as we do understand the consequences of such a decision,” the statement said.

“We appreciate you prompting us on your observations regarding two of our hosts, Kwame Nkrumah Tikesie and Adakabre Frimpong Manso. Management would ensure that our programs are in the larger interest of the Ghanaian public and not any political party,” the statement added.
