The Management of The Multimedia Group, owners of Joy FM and Joy News and its employee, Manasseh Azure Awuni have been asked to come out and tell the citizenry how much money they received from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to produce the ‘shoddy’ documentary on De-Eye Group.
Deputy Trades and Industry Minister, Carlos Ahenkorah speaking on UTV on Monday as monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com said he is forced to arrive at this conclusion because he sees the documentary as a piece which was hurriedly put together to divert attention from the leaked tape of National Democratic Congress (NDC) Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
“The documentary is hollow…some of us are forced to ask if Multimedia was paid to come out with such a piece to divert attention from the Ofosu Ampfo tape…,” he said in Twi.
Manasseh Azure Awuni, a Journalist at the Multimedia Group produced a documentary which according to him was to unearth how the ruling party, NPP is raising a Militia Group in a Security Installation.
The documentary has been the subject of several media discussions with NPP Communicators and the Government denying that De-Eye Group is a Militia Group.
Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Ken Agyapong has however claimed that there is some element of truth in the documentary.
He claimed that he knew of the existence of the Group and hence urged government communicators to stop defending the indefensible.
“One day, I was there when one boy came to ask me for GH¢2,000 because they were paying that amount for security recruitment at the Castle. I asked him to allow me verify but it turned out that it was not as he was told. This was a security man, infact a former personal bodyguard of Akufo-Addo who was training people…so I don’t told him not to pay any money to anyone”, he disclosed in an interview granted to a local radio station monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com.
But Mr Ahenkora believes Azure Awuni might have been paid by the NDC to do the documentary.
