Accra based Citi Fm seems to be reeling under serious pressure from Rice Importers in the country for campaigning against the continuous patronage of imported rice.

The Rice importers can confirm have black listed the popular radio station and cancelled all contracts they have with them.

The station has been at the forefront of promoting locally produced rice, particularly in the wake of the border closure by Nigeria and the restrictions placed on imported rice.

This move seems to have ruffled the feathers of the rice importing cabal in the country who have vented their wrath on the media house, totally blacklisting it and canceling all existing contracts.

Chief Executive Officer of the Adabraka based media firm, Samuel Attah Mensah, popularly known as Sammens broke the news of the brutal action by the rice importing cabal on his twitter handle.

He wrote ” And all the companies that advertise imported Rice on Citi FM withdrew their ads and cancelled the contracts. Big deal? Ghana wins!”.

Indeed there have been a big social media campaign by various stakeholders for Ghanaians to patronize locally produced rice.

The station seems to be enjoying tremendous support from the Ghanaian public, most of whom have urged them  not to get distracted.

Some have even gone further to promise contributing some ‘coins’ to help push the agenda.
