“Naughty” NPP being pampered by the media – Asiedu Nketia

The General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has accused the media of “pampering” the main opposition New Patriotic Party.

According to the former MP, the seeming media soft-spot for the opposition party makes them “get away with serious misconducts” without proper scrutiny.

The Danquah-Busia tradition was recently engulfed in internal wrangling over some administrative changes being undertaken in its communications directorate by General Secretary, Kwabena Agyepong and Chairman Paul Afoko.

The matter was widely reported by the media, but General Mosquito, as Nketiah is popularly called, said the media, in his view, appears kinder to the NPP compared to his party.

“They are being treated like a spoilt child who is untouchable at home. Because the media is soft on them, they take many things for granted.

“We (NDC) are not asking the media to give us preferential treatment, we are only asking you to be objective in dealing with all parties on national issues,” he told Adom FM.
