NPP blames Mahama and GTV over ‘no show’ of Nana Addo in coverage

The New Patriotic Party has blamed President Mahama and Directors of Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, for deliberately not capturing their presidential candidate Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo in the television coverage on the first day of the late president's funeral.

A member of the NPP communication team, Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover said the NPP was shocked at the attitude of the state broadcaster and will file a complaint with the National Media Commission in order to correct it.

He described the development as unacceptable, knowing that the state broadcaster is funded with tax payer’s resources.

Mr. Titus-Glover said they have the feeling the camera crew was probably took instruction from higher authorities.

He challenged the president to come out and state his position on the issue if he had nothing to do with it.

The member of the NPP communication team rejected the suggestion that the cameras may have missed Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo because he was short in height; rather he said it was impossible for other members of Nana Addo’s delegation to be captured but miss Nana Addo.
