Serial Callers working for the ruling NDC in the Ashanti region say they won’t be heard on radio or TV defending or championing the achievements and policies of the incumbent John Mahama-led government.
They insist on meeting the leadership of the party before Wednesday.
Chairman of the group which works under the name Media Monitors Association; Abdul Latif Abdullahi (Julius Aghahowa) tells rawgist.com if leadership fails to meet them by Wednesday, a different course of action will be initiated.
A statement issued by the Association doesn’t make the grievances of the serial callers clear enough but rawgist.com believes based on reliable information it has received that the serial communicators feel neglected and unappreciated despite their role in keeping the government on the minds of people through their regular phone calls and text messages during political on-air programs.
The serial callers rawgist.com suspects, want to have audience to voice out certain on-goings regarding the party and the government in general they are unhappy about and make suggestions on the way forward.
Please read their statement below:
