Kwame Sefa Kayi speaks as he reacts to resignation from Peace FM rumour
There have been a widespread rumours that the Chairman General Kwame Sefa Kayi is resigning from Peace FM. This comes after the release of statement by Peace FM to recall National Democratic Congress (NDC) onto the Kokrokoo show . However, he seems to have rejected the notion going around.
Speaking on Friday on his Kokrokoo show, Kwame Sefa Kayi attempted to rubbish the resignation claims and said it was expected, there is always going to be rumour mongering because he is in the public space.
“When they recognise you are working in a public space you don’t have to react to everything thrown at you,” Sefa Kayi stated.
Peace FM and the opposition NDC have had issues on the paneling of their flagship morning show Kokrokoo hosted by Chairman General which led to Sammy Gyamfi labelling Sefa Kayi as overhyped and that NDC bigger than Peace FM.
Report had that the host of Peace FM’s flagship political programme, Kokrokoo, Kwami Sefa Kayi is pissed off with management of the station.
According to information from the grapevine, the veteran broadcaster is unhappy with the management’s decision to eat the humble pie by writing to the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The source disclosed that Kwami Sefa Kayi who vehemently opposed the decision by management when it was brought to his attention feels betrayed by the decision and has openly expressed same to management.
The source added despite Kwami’s years of dedicated service to the Despite Media Group and the clout he wields, he feels let done by the sudden turn of events on this occasion and there are strong indications that he may tender in his resignation.
Meanwhile, we are also reliably informed that management took the decision to erase the impression that the station is in bed with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The station, our portal gathers, wants to continue to be seen by the public as being neutral in the discharge of its duties.
The NDC in May this year boycotted Peace FM’s Kokrokoo show hosted by Kwame Sefa Kayi.
A statement signed by Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communications Officer, revealed at the time that the party was not happy with the unfair paneling on the show.
But four months down the line, the station has written to the party asking for a truce to the impasse.
The letter dated September 23 and signed by the Managing Director, Fadda Dickson, has appealed to the party to let sleeping dogs lie and let harmony reign.
“The management of Peace FM, the mother station of Despite Media, wishes to state that we are not at loggerheads with the NDC”.
“Since the inception of Peace FM on May 25, 1999, we have had a mutually beneficial relationship with all political parties, including the NDC.
“However, in recent times, there has been a misunderstanding between us and the NDC in relation to the panelling of the discussion segment of the Kokrokoo show.
“The management of Despite Media, acknowledges responsibility for whatever misunderstanding that has arisen between us and the NDC in recent times.
“We, therefore, urge the NDC to let sleeping dogs lie and allow harmony to reign and return to the Kokrokoo show.
“As agents and stakeholders of development, we may agree to disagree, all for the sake of Ghana, our motherland”.
