The opposition New Patriotic Party and Accra-based Montie FM have been cited in the recent report on indecent expression on the media air-wave.

The report which was released by the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) indicated that Montie FM recorded 83 incidents of the use of abusive expressions followed by Oman FM (54) and Happy FM(30).

The opposition NPP also recorded 104 use of foul language, followed by the governing NDC (78) and NLP (14).

The report indicated that “overall, unsubstantiated allegations (127) and insulting and offensive comments (127) were the most used indecent expressions during the quarter. Other indecent expressions used during the period included provocative comments (52), remarks endorsing violence (20), remarks inciting violence (8), remarks promoting divisiveness (7) and tribal slurs (2).”

This is not the first time the NPP or Montie FM is topping the chart in this research. In a similar report released by the MFWA in June, the two led the pack of radio stations and political parties.

The MFWA report admitted that incidents of abusive language on radio still require the attention of stakeholders and therefore called on all to get involved.

Montie trio saga

The Supreme Court sentenced the Montie three (Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn and Salifu Maase alias ‘Mugabe’) to four months in prison following contempt proceedings against them.

The contempt proceedings came after the three threatened the lives of Supreme Court judges who sat on the Abu Ramadan and Gary Nimako versus the Electoral Commission case.

 

A petition book was subsequently opened by pro-government group Research and Advocacy Platform (RAP) to collect signatures of Ghanaians to implore the president to exercise his prerogative of mercy powers to free the three contemnors.

After spending 27 days in jail, President Mahama remitted the sentence of the three.

The recent report according to the foundation covered the period of April-June, 2016.
