The management of Okay FM and Neat FM is asking the New Patriotic Party to rescind its decision to boycott the two stations.
The management in a statement on Monday said it would ensure that the stations air programmes that would be in the larger interest of Ghanaians and not any political party.
The New Patriotic Party on Sunday said it was boycotting Okay FM and Neat FM, accusing the two of “consistently discussing all matters of the NPP with a negative slant”.
But the two stations said they have always been neutral with the way their programmes are run.
“It is our hope that you review your decision to boycott Okay FM and Neat FM. Our doors are always widely open to you as we all contribute our quota to develop our nation” it said.
Below is the stations’ statment
Re-NPP BOYCOTTS OKAY and NEAT FM
Management has had a long standing policy of providing a platform for the Ghanaian public to air their views on the various programs we host. 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.
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.
It is our hope that you review your decision to boycott Okay FM and Neat FM. Our doors are always widely open to you as we all contribute our quota to develop our nation.
