A Letter To Justin Kodua Frimpong; It Is Time NPP Boycotted All Media General Platforms – P.K Sarpong

Dear General!

Media General platforms have been treating our presidential candidate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, communicators and the top brass of the party with a horrid pattern of injustice.

Day in, day out, Media General platforms are used to smirch our presidential candidate for no apparent or logical reason.

TV3, Onua TV and their affiliate radio stations across the country have become platforms used to undermine our candidate, fabricate stories about him and throw dirt at his personality.

Hosts of these stations consistently show raw hatred towards Dr. Bawumia and insult him at will. They invent falsehoods and throw them out there against the candidate.

Dr. Bawumia has become an object of derision in the eyes of these half-baked radio and television stations and their hosts.

They twist issues and embellish stories just to make our candidate look monstrous in the eyes of the Ghanaian populace.

Our communicators are always outnumbered on all the political programs on Media General’s platforms. In some occasions, we would see one NPP representative and four NDC-aligned panelists with the hosts supporting the versions articulated by the NDC’s reps.

Onua TV is just an outfit created to heap all manner of invectives on Dr. Bawumia and our party’s top guns. Ministers are constantly subjected to verbal abuses by the host of the show.

On TV3’s KeyPoints show, more often than not, there is one NPP rep and five NDC representatives camouflaged by the use of pro-NDC lecturers and analysts who appear on the show.

General, I need not point out that this is a grand agenda by the owners and management of Media General to give John Mahama an undue advantage as we approach the 2024 elections.

Putting it simply, Media General has become a propaganda outfit for the NDC. It is a pro-Mahama entity and must be left to remain so by not sending our communicators to their platforms.

Sir, our communicators do not need to dwell amongst such fiendish elements and scavengers in order to promote the works of our government and the vision of our presidential candidate, Dr. Bawumia.

Such toxic environments have no rooms for reasonable and sound arguments and articulation of our policies. Kindly, withdraw our communicators.

We should sever ties with Media General. It is bent on undermining our efforts whilst promoting the incompetent one, John Dramani Mahama. There are equally good media houses and better television and radio stations where we can sell our candidate, promote his vision and tell Ghanaians our story.

We are the New Patriotic Party, if we were able to survive in the dark days of our democracy, we shall smoothly triumph in the face of these deliberate efforts by Media General in cahoots with the NDC to dwarf us onto the sidelines.

What is the essence of patronizing a media outlet and its affiliates when all they do is to go to great lengths and trouble to make us look bad in the eyes of the public? Let us boycott their programs!
Thank you.

P.K. Sarpong, Whispers from the Corridors of the Thinking Place.
