On 12th October ,2020, Bono NDC Communication Office came to a shock when the Member of Parliament for Jaman South who also doubles as Deputy Minister for Aviation resulted to a Primitive way of getting redress from a media house by threatening the life of Akroma Deefour, the morning show host of Kiss Fm, a local radio station based at Drobo for exposing his incompetence and his inability to bring about development to the good people of Jaman South Constituency.
The Law maker who felt exposed and embarrassed after the journalist compared his twelve (12) years achievements in Parliament on roads to that of *Tano* *South MP, Hon* *Benjamin Sekyere’s* 4 years achievement, got angry and threatened the journalist, Akroma Deefour.
Reacting to the statement made by the journalist on his own radio station, Jaman Radio based at Drobo, the MP threatened to mercilessly deal with the journalist. He was heard on air making the following statement.. *“What nonsense is that…you Akroma, who are you to compare Tano South MP, Hon Benjamin Sekyere to me?”* he shouted. He was then heard threatening to storm the radio station to deal with the host .
The management of Kiss FM has officially reported the matter to Jaman South Police Command, but the journalist, Akroma Deefour who feels unsafe and frightened has called on the Police Service Department to deal with the issue to avoid any unforseen circumstance.
Bono NDC Communication Office will like to associate itself with this urgent call on the law enforcement Agency to investigate this unfortunate incident of death threat made by a member of parliament for Jaman South Hon Yaw Afful against Akroma Deefour.
We also condermn the content of a letter issued on 20th October, 2020 by Bono Regional Communications Director of NPP -Hon.Asare Bediako which sought to ban Kiss Fm from discussing any program or activity of New Partriotic Party in Jaman South Municipality in particular and Bono Region in general. We see this directive as a move against media freedom which the 1992 constitution of Ghana has granted them.
