The National Communication Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has berated and lampooned top journalist Kwame Sefa Kayi, Joy Fm and other journalists in the country, labeling the as hypocrites.
Mr. Gyamfi is angry Mr. Sefa Kayi, an award winning journalist and host of Accra based Peace Fm’s Kokrokoo programme and the other journalists because according to him, they gave prominence to the leaked audio tape involving the National Chairman of NDC, Mr. Ofosu-Ampofo.
In a radio interview on Accra based okay Fm today Thursday, February 28 2019, Sammy Gyamfi described Mr. Sefa Kayi and some journalists at Joy Fm as a bunch of hypocrites for what he termed their act of selectivity, relative to the airing of leaked tapes involving political actors.
According to Sammy Gyamfi, Mr. Kwame Sefa Kayi on several occasions has blatantly refused to give mileage to leaked tapes potent of exposing and disgracing the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on their respective platforms. He further criticized Joy Fm for transcribing the leaked tape.
“These bunch of hypocrite journalists will never play leaked tapes on their shows so far as they have negative repercussions on the NPP. However, they are quick to play leaked tapes that involve the NDC like we are seeing today”.
His comments come on the back of the leaked audio which has since gone viral on both social and mainstream media in which the National Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo is heard making very damning revelations on some moves the party intends to make in the lead up to the 2020 elections.
He is also heard revealing how they will make life unbearable for some Ghanaians, particularly members of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), saying ‘’we will go after them. But we will not go after them face-to-face. We have to use tactical operation to make life uncomfortable for them. We will target some people and we will let the people know that their lives are in danger. They themselves will be careful. As for that one, I want to assure you that we will go all out to ensure that it happens. As president Mahama said, when it comes to this game, we are better than them’’.
That aside, Mr. Ofosu Ampofo in the tape also instigated and incited NDC party supporters and members against well-meaning Ghanaians including President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa and the Chairman of the National Peace Council, Rev. Professor Emmanuel Asante.
