The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has responded to Despite Media’s letter to rescind their decision to boycott flagship ‘Kokrokoo’ morning show hosted by Kwami Sefa Kayi
A few days ago, KwasiAboagyeLive.com reported that Despite Media had written a letter to the NDC urging them to let sleeping dogs lie and allow peace to reign between both parties and return to the Kokrokoo show.
“Management of Despite Media acknowledges responsibility for whatever misunderstanding that has been 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”. Part of the statement signed by Fadda Dickson read.
Reacting in a statement signed by the General Secretary of the party, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah well known as General Mosquito, said the NDC hold no grudges against Despite Media or Peace FM in spite of challenges they have had with the host and production team of the “Kokrokoo” show.
They indicated that they consider Despite Media as a major partner in their collective quest to deepen democracy and good governance.
According to the NDC, they wish to have a meeting with the management of the station, the host and the production team of the show to discuss and resolve the issue of unfair paneling that brought about their boycott of the show.

We appreciate the conciliatory tone of your letter and wish to indicate that the NDC holds no grudges against Despite Media or Peace FM in spite of the challenges we have had with the Host and Production Team of the “Kokrokoo” show in recent time, we still consider Despite Media as a major partner in our collective quest to deepen democracy and good governance through public discourse.
In view of your request, I wish to humbly invite the management of the station, the host and the production team of the “Kokrokoo” show to a meeting with the leadership of the NDC and the National Communication Bureau of the Party to discuss and amicably resolve the issue of unfair paneling that occasioned our boycott of the show.
